CRANBERRY CHOCOLATE PIE

Cranberries and chocolate are meant to be together. Have you ever had that bark from Costco? It’s dark chocolate quinoa bark with dried cranberries in it. You can’t stop eating it. 

The flavors are fire.

INGREDIENTS

  • FRESH CRANBERRIES – You can use frozen cranberries here too.
  • SEMI-SWEET CHOCOLATE CHIPS – If you don’t mind things extra sweet you could use milk chocolate or dark if that’s what you like.
  • WALNUTS – I like the buttery texture of walnuts but you can use pecans too.
  • EGGS
  • SUGAR
  • PIE CRUST
  • BUTTER
  • RUM EXTRACT – I don’t use real rum here but you could substitute 2 tablespoons of rum for this if you like.

HOW DO I BLIND BAKE A CRUST?

You can line a pie crust with foil and fill it with pie weights, dried beans, or rice. Blind baking a crust helps it to not shrink. 

CAN I MAKE THIS AHEAD OF TIME?

Yes, this pie freezes great. You can freeze up to two months.
