Do you remember Bishops Chocolate Pie?
Back in the 1960's to 1980's you may have visited a Bishop's Cafeteria in the Midwest....
This was our favorite place to go for lunch and the line went clear out the door. No matter what I put on my tray, I always got that great slice of chocolate pie! Last Sunday, my friend Julie Brockett gave me this recipe. You must try it!
Here is what you need: 1 quart vanilla ice cream, 1 1/2 cups milk, 2 small packages of instant chocolate pudding, and my tweak here for a darker chocolate was : 2 SQUARES unsweetened chocolate melted.
Beat together and set aside 1 cup of whipping cream and 1/4 cup confectioners sugar...this will be for the edging around the pie
You will also need a nice graham cracker crust pie shell and milk chocolate curls for decorating. If you want to save money a graham cracker crust is so easy as it is 1 1/2 cups of crushed cinnamon graham crackers mixed with 1/2 stick of melted butter and pressed into a pie shell. Bake at 375 degrees about 8 minutes.
Mix and beat the softened ice cream and milk for 2 minutes, add 1 package of the chocolate pudding and beat 2 more minutes, add the second package and beat 2 more minutes and the melted chocolate mixed through ........pour into the graham cracker crust. Decorate the edge of the pie with the whipped cream and embellish with chocolate curls.
