Mac’s Chocolate Pie

Mac's Chocolate Pie is delicious.

My grandparents and parents loved K&W Cafeteria more than anyone I know. Anytime we went to Winston-Salem, Charlotte, or Myrtle Beach, you could bet your bottom dollar that a trip (or several) to K&W were in the near future. One of the things I loved about going to the K&W with my grandparents was the chocolate pie. I just loved it. I loved the crust, the consistency of the chocolate, and the whipped cream. To this day, I love their chocolate pie. Well, let’s clarify… I love any and all chocolate pie.

However, I do discriminate. Some chocolate pies are better than others. Last week, when I cut my hand on the cranberry sauce can, my friend Cheryl came to my house to pick me up to take me to get stitches. After the fiasco, she held out a fork to me and said, “Here… taste this.” It was her father’s chocolate pie. I could not believe how delicious this pie was. I said, “You have GOT to make this, and get me the recipe for the blog!” And so, she did. We enjoyed this pie on Thursday night with Kevin and John.

Hats off to Mac Warren. K&W has nothing on him!

From start to finish, this recipe will approximately 40 minutes.

Mac and his girls enjoy vacation together.
