I got your CHOCOLATE PIE right here!

Tammye Bridgeman


I love meringues, but with a rich chocolate pie, fresh whipped cream is the way to go! You won't go back.
I prefer my chocolate desserts to really look chocolate & that is why I divide my cocoa with a measure of dark cocoa.
The coffee intensifies chocolate & the salt balances the sweetness.
