Chocolate Chess Tarts

Hello everyone!

Did you have a good Thanksgiving?  One of the things I took to my family's Thanksgiving this year were these little scrumptious pies.  They are so easy to make and soooooooo good!  What I love about them is that everyone gets there only little pie.  

You will need these ingredients:

small pie shells, sugar, evaporated milk, baking chocolate, butter, vanilla and eggs

Combine chocolate, butter and evaporated milk in saucepan on stove.

Stir together and heat until melted.

Set that aside and let cool slightly.  

Then combine eggs and sugar in a large bowl.

Add vanilla and chocolate mixture from the stove.

Mix well and pour into a container that will allow you to pour this into the pie shells.

Pour mixture into pie shells and bake in oven.

After 30 minutes in the oven, they will be done. Remove and transfer to a cooling rack.

I actually doubled the recipe to make more pies, but this recipe should give you at least 12 pies or more!

Remove from pie tin and enjoy!

I cut into this one so you could see how decadent the chocolate is inside!

I have had this recipe for many years.  A friend gave it to me from the Southern Living Magazine.  So, maybe you can try it over the holidays this year too!

Chocolate Chess Tarts

2 eggs
 5 oz can evaporated milk
12 unbaked individual frozen tart/pie shells
1/4 c butter
(2) 1 oz squares unsweetened baking chocolate
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/4 sugar

Combine chocolate, butter, and evap milk in small saucepan.  Cook over low heat until melted and smooth.  Let cool slightly.  
Combine eggs and sugar in a large bowl.  Add vanilla and choc mixture.  Blend thoroughly.  
Pour into unbaked pie shells.  Place shells on a baking sheet.  Bake at 350 degrees for 30 min.  Cool.


Thanks for stopping by!

I love chocolate and these look so good!! I like that there's no pie to slice's much easier to just serve everyone their own individual pie. :) Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. :)
