Easter is not Easter without the story of a fall and rise of a being. This is such a tale. We were getting ready to visit our good friend, Rina. I had promised her a hollow Easter bunny because she likes to break their heads off and put ice cream into them. It is quite savage. The day before visiting I put the bunnies (there was another one for her son as well) in the trunk and completely forgot about them until we were ready to leave the next day. I opened my trunk and discovered a sight that was fit for an episode of CSI. It was particularly warm that day, and the bunnies were hollow no more. Not wanting to waste perfectly good chocolate, I thought of what I could do. I happened to have pie crust in my fridge, so I thought about making a chocolate pie, but I wasn’t quite sure how to go about doing it.
So, I just started putting in the usual suspects.
- 1/2 cup sugar
- About 1/4 stick of butter
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup of flour
- Not sure if baking powder was necessary but put it in anyways
And, yes, I still have pecans in my freezer. So, I chopped up the bunny and the pecans and threw them in, too.
I put the pie in at 350º for about 20 minutes or until the crust started to brown. I really didn’t follow the time. When I took it out, I broke some more chocolate pieces off and put them on top to melt. And there you go. Done.
My daughter loved it. She ate everything but the crust. So I pretty much could’ve made regular cookies.
