Richly chocolatey and generously spiced, our Mexican Spiced Chocolate Pumpkin Pie is the perfect pie for when you want to impress people, but also not work that hard. On second thought, it might just be the perfect pie. Because the options for having pie over the holidays doesn’t have to be either buy one or spend all day baking one, it can be somewhere in the middle. Make yours with our Imperfect Foods 85% Dark Chocolate Discs, which we saved from going to waste when a Colombia-based chocolate producer ended up with more chocolate than they could sell.
Makes 1 deep-dish 9-inch piem or 2 regular 8-inch pies
Definitely interesting. Not all that sweet but the cayenne and chili powder give a fun kick to the back of the throat. We all liked it but it needs something that we can quite put our finger on yet. I had leftover roasted pumpkin and butternut squash (from making pumpkin soup) so I thought I’d give this a test run well before Thanksgiving. Kudos to the creator of this idea. I may add the cayenne and chili powder to my tried and true pumpkin pie recipe.
Love to hear that you tried this and enjoyed it! You’ll have to play around with the recipe and let us know what you think should be added! 💚
I was so excited to make this. A little disappointing overall tho. Couldn’t taste much chocolate and I felt the heat overwhelmed the pie overall. If doing again I would alter the recipe.
Glad that you were able to try this and totally hear you, but looking forward to hearing back about how you like the altered version that you try making next! 💚
We made this for Thanksgiving and it was a hit! Left out the heat in the pie for kiddos, sprinkled on top for grownups and subbed ground ginger for fresh but we still all loved it. Thanks for a new favorite!
Love that you and the fam loved this! Grateful for y’all! 💚
I loved this addition to our Thanksgiving feast. The flavors perfectly complimented our meal. I also thought it wasn’t too sweet, and I liked it that way.
Love to hear it so much! So happy you enjoyed and berry grateful for you! 🤗💚✨
