Abbott's First Kiss Pie

Thursday, January 1, 2009

Abbott had his first kiss and we are celebrating by creating a pie! He kissed a girl in his class who has been his off-and-on girlfriend since school started. He said they both decided to kiss three times (since three is their favorite number) so they went to hide behind the garbage bins at recess and kissed three times. Abbott was quick to note that he "didn't use his tongue and he wasn't chewing gum... because that would be gross because then the gum would be in her mouth". When Justin and I came home from work that evening Abbott was proud to tell us of his accomplishment but we haven't had time to celebrate until now (he kissed her two weeks ago).

Like first kisses, this pie is simple, sweet, and strangely addictive!!! No joke, this pie is absolutely fantastic! The chocolate mousse melts in your mouth and the whipped topping is so delicious, in the future I will cover the entire pie with it! Abbott helped come up with the ingredients, make it, and is VERY proud, he calls it "My Kiss Pie". I am actually really glad this pie turned out to be so tasty because we will definitely make it again in the future and can remember and celebrate Abbott's first kiss!

1 (9 inch) frozen deep dish pie crust
1 (7.5 ounce) jar marshmallow creme
1 cup milk chocolate chips
1/4 cup butter
2 ounces unsweetened chocolate squares
2 cups heavy whipping cream, whipped
1/4 cup powdered sugar

Bake the pie crust according to directions. Meanwhile, in a heavy saucepan, combine the butter and marshmallow creme until they are melted. Stir in the chocolate chips and unsweetened chocolate; cook and stir over low heat until the chocolate is melted and the mixture is smooth. Take it off the burner and set it aside while you whip the cream. In a large mixing bowl, beat the heavy cream until it begins to thicken and add powdered sugar; beat until stiff peaks form. Keep half of the whipped cream for topping later and mix half of it with the chocolate mixture. The chocolate marshmallow mixture won't fold into the whipped cream easily so I used my mixer to blend it in for a couple seconds. Pour it into the crust and top with the leftover half of whipped cream. Chill the pie for at least 2 hours. Garnish with chocolate curls if desired.

What a cute story!

Reminds me of passing notes at that age:

Do you want to meet me at the bike racks after school?

And then asking the person to "check the box" yes or no!
