1 stick of butter
1 cup Equal Sugar-Lite
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 eggs beaten or 1/2 cup egg substitute
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup flour
1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
Prepare your favorite sugar-free pie crust shell but do not bake.
Melt butter in saucepan and blend in cocoa powder. Blend in other ingredients, except nuts. Mix well. Add nuts and mix in. Pour into pie crust shell. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes.
For a special dessert, add a scoop of sugar-free vanilla ice-cream to each pie slice and drizzle sugar-free chocolate syrup (I love the Russell Stover brand) over top of ice cream. Sprinkle with chopped nuts, if desired.
Note: For a chocolate lovers’ birthday treat, dress each slice as mentioned above and insert a birthday candle into the ice-cream of the honorees’ slice. Or you could put the candles on the pie before serving, then cut into slices, add the ice cream and syrup after the candles have been blown out. That would probably work better with a child and the other method better for an adult.
