We may upset some apple pie purists here, but, being chocolate lovers, we went a little cuckoo when we saw this pie from Kayotic Kitchen, a food blog from the Netherlands. Chocolate pie dough? Oh, heck yeah. Read on for a link to the recipe...
Kay, the creator of this unusual delight, writes that it really isn't too sweet—in case some of you are looking at the chocolate crust and chocolate-apple filling and thinking, "Overload." She even recommends adding a bit more sugar if you want to.
We love Kay's step-by-step photos. Even a lump of brown dough looks beautiful. We're trying to think of more ways to use this basic chocolate pie crust.
The filling is simple—just apples cooked down with some butter, cinnamon, and more chocolate. The little pastry cut-outs are identical to these that Faith made with leftover pie dough.
Kay bakes her pie in a springform pan, but we think it would work fine in a basic pie dish.
