Chocolate Pie and Beans?!

Yes, beans.  I know, I know, you're probably thinking beans and chocolate don't go together {and believe me, they don't!}.  To be honest I wasn't sure how it would turn out, but surprisingly it tasted amazing!  Don't worry the beans don't stay in the pie.  You'll see what I mean. :)


You will need the following:


-Pie crust { I am using this brand }


-Chocolate filling { I am using this brand }


-Any dry beans  { we used lima beans }


-Milk { we used oat milk }


-Parchment paper


{ Note: You can use any brands you want. }


Step one:


If you are using a frozen pie crust, let it thaw for 10 minutes.


{ Be sure to remove the lining in the pie }

Step two:


Put parchment paper inside the pie crust.  Then put the beans on top so the pie crust will bake evenly { See below }.



Step three:


Now put in oven and follow directions on your pie crust.


Step four:


Remove the pie crust from the oven and remove the parchment paper with the beans.  Let cool.


Step five:


As the pie crust cools start making your pie filling.  Whatever brand you chose for your pie filling, follow those directions.



Step six:


Let filling cool before putting in pie crust { 5 - 8 minutes }.


Step seven:


Pour into pie crust.  Refrigerate for 3 - 4 hours.  Then enjoy!


I hope you guys love this recipe as much as we did.  If you are a chocolate lover { like myself } you will truly enjoy this recipe!  What dessert have you been loving?  I would love to hear about it!


Until next time,


Xoxo, Natalie
