The birthday boys wanted pie instead of cake this year. Jake ordered Key Lime...he's never had it before, but enjoys Yoplait Key Lime yogurt almost everyday. So I tried this recipe. Very good. Except next time I will not buy the teeny tiny key limes. Lots of squeezing. Little juice.

Brad only likes chocolate his was a no brainer. Chocolate Velvet Pie. It's his mom's recipe...of course. This is not a really creamy recipe, because it's made with gelatin instead of whipped cream and eggs. So, it's kinda like chocolate jello. Different, light and yummy.

Chocolate Velvet Pie
1/4 cup cold milk
2 envelopes unflavored gelatin
1/2 cup hot milk
1 cup chocolate chips
1 egg
1/4 c. sugar
1 cup evaporated milk
1 t. vanilla
8 or 9 ice cubes
pinch salt
chocolate or graham cracker crust
whipped cream for garnish

In blender, blend cold milk and gelatin, then add hot milk and blend 40 seconds until gelatin dissolves. Add chocolate chips and blend til melted. Add egg, sugar, salt, milk and vanilla, then ice cubes one or two at a time. Pour into crust and refrigerate. This sets up quickly (15-20 minutes).

For the Chocolate pie, do you use milk chocolate, chocolate chips or semi-sweet? Maybe, it is a silly question...I imagine milk chocolate, but my Dad only likes semi-sweet.

I always use semi-sweet...I think milk would be too sweet. But try it and let me know...
