I mentioned I'd be posting the Living Caesar recipe next, but with Canadian Thanksgiving is this weekend, I MUST post this most awesome Chocolate Pumpkin Pie recipe!!
It always seems to sneak up on me, our Thanksgiving... do my fellow Canadians notice this? It's back to school and then all of a sudden, whammo! Thanksgiving is here! Especially this year. Hubby mentioned last week that we had a long weekend approaching, and I said "what for?". Yeah, Thanksgiving! I'd prefer how US Thanksgiving is closer to the entire holiday season. In Canada, I feel it gets lost between school and Halloween business.
Anyhow, this pie can be prepared very quickly. Get your canned pumpkin pie mix, your chocolate chips, and a prepared chocolate pie crust (my fave is Wholly Wholesome, as many of you know). Ready, get set, go! This is an easy pie to make, but tastes and looks like you've been working way too hard in the kitchen. :)
Even if you don't care much for pumpkin pie, I think you'll like this recipe. Because, didn't you see CHOCOLATE in the title?! The taste of the pumpkin mix offers more of a background note to the intense dark chocolate flavor. So, this pie can be served to a crowd of both pumpkin pie lovers, and those not feelin' the pumpkin pie love!

Enjoy your Thanksgiving, guys... and of course, the pie!
