No longer must you choose between your favorite dessert (chocolate) and the traditional choice (pumpkin pie) on Thanksgiving. We have combined these two into a perfectly rich and chocolaty treat that honors tradition while satisfying your real cravings.
This simple pie also can be dressed up. Whipped cream is an obvious choice, as are chocolate or vanilla ice cream. Take it even further with a drizzle of warm chocolate sauce, warm maple syrup, or warmed pumpkin butter.
