Not only is this recipe easy, it could be made with ingredients many of us have on hand — baking chocolate, a can of sweetened condensed milk and a frozen pie shell.
Old recipe from 1930s Eagle Brand advertising
2 squares unsweetened chocolate
1 1/3 cups (1 can) Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk
1/2 cup water
Baked 8-inch pie shell (bet this would be great made with a graham cracker crumb crust, too)
Melt chocolate in double boiler. Add sweetened condensed milk, stirring over boiling water for 5 minutes until mixture thickens. Add water, stir until thoroughly blended. Pour into baked pie shell. Chill. Garnish with whipped cream if desired.
What is it about men and pie? My husband doesn't eat desserts, but he'd sell his soul for a good piece of pie.
