For Mother’s Day my wonderful daughter made a dessert for me.
While she was searching in my recipes for the perfect choice, it didn’t take long to decide on Hershey’s Kitchens Gone To Heaven Chocolate Pie. After the first time she made it, she put this note on the recipe:
Gone To Heaven Chocolate Pie
1 9-inch pie shell
2/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 egg yolks
3 cups milk
2 tablespoons butter, softened
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups HERSHEY’S SPECIAL DARK Chocolate Chips, and/or semi-sweet chocolate chips (*this time we used only semi-sweet chocolate chips)
Sweetened whipped cream or whipped topping (optional)
Bake pie shell; cool. Or use a ready-made pie shell — this time we used a store bought chocolate cookie crust.
Stir together the sugar, cornstarch and salt in 2 quart saucepan.
Combine egg yolks and milk.
Gradually blend milk mixture into sugar mixture. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture comes to a boil.
Boil and stir 1 minute. Remove from heat; stir in butter and vanilla.
Add chocolate chips; stir until chips are melted and mixture is well blended.
Pour into prepared pie shell; press plastic wrap onto filling. Cool. Refrigerate several hours or until chilled and firm.
Garnish with whipped cream and additional chocolate chips, if desired.
