Chocolate Malt Pie

Sena Wilson


We occasionally indulge in having a chocolate malt for a treat at our favorite hamburger drive-in. I love the taste of malt in ice cream so why not create a chocolate malt cream pie? I added walnuts for crunch, whipped cream and chocolate sauce for indulgence! Now it is a favorite, and I vary it with shaved chocolate on occasion. Hope you enjoy the twist on a chocolate cream pie.

When mixture comes to a boil, drop in the 1/2 chocolate bar. Continue to cook for 2 more minutes. Remove from heat and add vanilla.
