I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend! It was pretty low key at our house. I went grocery shopping and did a whole bunch of cooking! One of the things I made was this delicious pie!

I'm a huge pumpkin pie lover, especially my Dad's pumpkin pie, but I decided to jazz it up some and incorporate some chocolate into the mix! This recipe really couldn't be any easier and the layer of chocolate on the bottom is great for all you chocolate lovers! It would be a wonderful addition to Thanksgiving or any fall get together!

1 pie

What you need:
1- 9 inch frozen pie crust, thawed
1/2 cup miniature semi sweet chocolate chips
1- 15 ounce can pumpkin
2 eggs
3/4 cup half and half
3/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
whipped cream and mini chocolate chips for topping

Directions:
Heat oven to 450 degrees. Bake thawed pie crust for 5-6 minutes, until it starts to brown. Remove from oven and cool 5 minutes.

In a small saucepan, combine 1/2 cup chocolate chips and 2 tablespoons of the pumpkin. Cook over low heat and stir frequently until chocolate is melted. Spread over the bottom of the cooled pie crust. 

In a large bowl, beat together the eggs and half and half. Add remaining pumpkin,sugar and pumpkin pie spice, mix well. Pour over the chocolate mixture in the pie crust. Place pie in the 450 degree oven, immediately reducing heat to 350 degrees. Bake about 45 minutes until center is set. Cool completely then slice and serve topped with whipped cream and chocolate chips. Store remaining pie in the refrigerator.
