Chocolate Chip Melt Pie

A co-worker made this for our grade level several years ago. I got the recipe and have been making it a few times a year ever since. It is SO good! To serve, zap a slice in the microwave for about 10 seconds - no longer or it will totally disintegrate.

1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
2 large eggs, beaten
1/2cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 stick unsalted butter, melted
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 unbaked pie shell

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix together chocolate chips, nuts, and
eggs. Add sugar, butter, and flour.
Stir in vanilla. Pour into pie shell
and place on a baking sheet. Bake in
center of oven for 30 minutes or until
pastry is lightly browned and filling
is bubbling. Serve warm or at room

My favorite thing is to make a bit of a big batch with a whole bag of chocolate chips instead of just one cup. Then I put the extra into the tiny, individual size pie crusts. Here are some pictures for you to enjoy - since you can't come over and have a slice!


I've got a blog all about me - personal me. Not teacher me - just me! It feels great. I can't wait to blog about all the funny things that happen to me.

I've got a great husband and 2 wonderful daughters. DH is Keith and the girls are Drama Queen (DQ) and Monkey Girl (MG). DQ is 6.99 (birthday in 2 weeks or so!) and MG is 4.5. Both are out to drive each other and me crazy! Karma sucks - my mom says they are a lot like I was as a child - talkative, cute, and smart!

Must go get busy with baths and Christmas preparations.
