Warp Drive Chocolate Pie
From Frank Reid

Takes 5 minutes to make and is the most incredible pie you've ever tried.


  • 12 oz bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips.

  • 5 egg yolks (no whites).

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla.

  • 3 tablespoons brandy or other liquor (try Gran Marnier or Kaluha).

  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream.

  • 1 Graham cracker or Oreo Cookie pie crust - 8" (Chocolate shown.)


Put first 4 ingredients in a blender. Blend on low 1 minute. Heat the 1 1/2 cups heavy cream just to boiling. Pour into blender. Blend on high for 1 minute. Pour into crust. Chill for at least 3 hours uncovered in the refrigerator.

The hot cream melts the chocolate and cooks the eggs. This recipe is very rich. The slices should be about 1" wide. Can't eat much more than that. Try drizzling with a raspberry sauce right before serving.

I gave this recipe to a friend of mine in the UK. He served it to several members of the House of Lords. He said it was the first time any of them commented on anything he'd ever served them. ~ Frank Reid

Publisher's Note:
This is indeed everything Frank claims. Fast, incredible, and as you are making it you will hardly believe how it all works out. We did add to it a bit, my grandmother would have called it "gilding the lily." Just a little scoop of Cool Whip and a few fresh raspberries seemes to buffer the richness. I haven't tried it, but I wonder how it would be made from white chocolate chips. ~ DLB
