Crustless Chocolate Pumpkin Pie

03 November 2013

I'm kind of addicted to pumpkin pie, when the middle of september comes around I immediately buy a pumpkin and start whipping up some pies. While I'm a little behind on my 'pumpkin duties' I immediately got inspired last week when I was talking to my grandmother about how she makes me crustless pumpkin pies (in ramekins) for Thanksgiving. So I thought let's try it in a full pan and maybe add a little something, because what goes better with pumpkin than chocolate? Chocolate Pumpkin Pie, sans the guilt of having a crust. Don't cringe just yet, I had to fight David and the kids off it the first couple hours of making it. It was completely gone in 24 hours, mostly of my doing. Trust me, you'll love it, and if you really feel the need to have a crust, go for it.
