I Can See Through Time Pie.

You could probably make this a lot prettier if you smoothed the top and removed the crust from the tinfoil pan.

Be forewarned – this pie is unspeakably good, unspeakably thick and rich, and will leave you so high on sugar and chocolate that there’s a good chance you’ll be able to see through space and time. This recipe is specifically recommended for people with powerful blenders (Blendtec or Vitamix or whatever) because the ‘batter’ is really, really thick and heavy and there’s a good chance it would just burn out the motor in a normal blender. Seriously. It’s that thick.

The resulting pie is really dense and tastes deliciously like chocolate and coconut. You will need several glasses of milk or hot coffee to get through a slice but it’ll be worth it.

I Can See Through Time Pie

Ingredients:
1 pre-made 9″ pie crust of your choice (or make your own from scratch)
2 1/4 cups of maple syrup
2 1/4 cups of cocoa powder
1 cup of coconut oil (or coconut butter)

Directions:

  1. Blend the syrup, cocoa, and coconut oil together until it’s no longer grainy and has a silky (thick) texture.
  2. Pour the mixture into the pre-made pie crust. Smooth the top if you want it to be pretty.
  3. Put it in the fridge for at least 3 hours or overnight.
  4. Remove from the fridge and use a hot, moist knife to cut into slivers.
  5. Eat it while making obscene noises.

Notes:
I used a pre-made graham cracker crust which was lacklustre – next time I’d make my own crust and probably add in some cinnamon. Really, though, no one is interested in the crust on this pie.

I cut myself what I thought was a thin slice – I should have made it about half the size that I did. Meanwhile, my 13 year old son had one that was about 4 times the size of my slice – here’s a photo:

He should have plenty of energy this morning.
