You need to try this!
Melt the chocolate chips using a double-boiler, or do what I do and just pop them into the microwave on medium heat for a couple minutes. ^_^ Its easier. Take them out every minute or so to stir them, so that they don't burn.
After the chocolate is melted, pour it into a food processor, along with all of the other ingredients, and blend until smooth. Pour the mixture into a baked pie crust, and let the pie cool in the frig. It gets really thick and creamy. ^_^ The great thing about this pie is that you don't need to bake it.
*How to Make a Yummy Pie Crust
2 cups of almonds, walnuts, or vegan cereal ^_^ 4 Tablespoons of unrefined vegan sugar (Or dehyderated cane juice) 3 Tablespoons of soy non-hydrogenated vegan margarine - melted
Preheat the your oven to 375. Crush the nuts or cereal using a food processor, or a rolling pin like my grandmother does. ^_^ Add the vegan sugar and margarine to the crust base, and mix well. Evenly spread the mixture over a 9 inch pie tin. (I think that is the right size... ^_^) Bake the crust for 10 or 15 minutes.
Keep this pie refrigerated.
Everyone loves this pie. ^_^ ENJOY!
**Try using Tropical Source Peanut Butter Chocolate Chips. It makes the pie taste like a peanut butter cup. Tropical Source manufacturing equipment is animal product free, and 10% of their profits go to help conserve the rainforest. ^_^ But the best thing about the company is that the chips are vegan and delicious.
