I love you Grandpa.
My mom used to open up a new jar of peanut butter then make a heart in it for me. I honestly thought that Jiffy peanut butter was made that way, up until I was old enough to figure out that wasn't the case.
My adorable husband knows that story and always makes a heart for me in the new jar. I love it.
Reduce oven temp to 325. In a heatproof bowl set over (not in) a saucepan of simmering water, melt the chocolate and butter.
Using an electric mixer, beat the eggs, salt and ½ C of the sugar until fluffy, 4 to 5 minutes. Fold a third of the egg mixture into the chocolate mixture, then fold in the remainder.
Pour the combined mixture into the crust and bake until puffed and beginning to crack, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool for 1 hour, then chill in the refrigerator.
Beat the cream with the remaining sugar (3 T) until soft peaks form. Spread over the pie and sprinkle with shaved chocolate.
Its delicious! Thanks Karen, for giving me this fantastic chocolate pie recipe!!
P.S. Dont forget to leave a few of the chocolate morsels out to munch on!
