My favorite part of Fall is the plethora of pumpkin recipes and pumpkin flavored/scented products. I love pumpkin! One of my favorite bloggers, Chocolate Covered Katie posted this little gem and I had to try it!
This recipe is easy to make and relatively healthy (for a pie :)). I had to use regular semi-sweet chocolate chips because for some reason, my neighborhood store is no longer carrying the Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips. This recipe can be made gluten-free by using the Enjoy Life chocolate chips and gluten-free crust
15 oz pureed pumpkin (or 1 can)
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1-2 tsp cocoa powder
level 1/4 tsp salt
1 cup chocolate chips
optional: sweetener (Taste first. I thought it was sweet enough without additional sweetener.)
Melt the chocolate (either on the stove or in the microwave), then throw everything into a food processor and blend until it is super-smooth. Pour into a pie crust and fridge until chilled. This pie gets firmer and firmer, the longer it sits.
