Minnys Chocolate Pie inspired by The Help

Minny's Chocolate Pie - The Help

The movie The Help is by far, one of my top 10 most favorite movies of all time. So when we decided it was time to take our recipes to the movies, The Help was an easy choice for me.

Minnys Chocolate Pie - The Help

If you’ve spent anytime around my blog, you’d know already that I have a certain affection with southern food, and you can’t get much more southern than a good old traditional chocolate pie. And I have wanted to make one since I saw the movie, minus Minny’s “special ingredient”.

Awhile back, I had clipped a Chocolate Pie recipe out of our local paper in hopes I’d get around to making it, so I did.

And it was delicious. In fact, it was AWESOME.

However I wanted something closer to the movie version – a little thicker, a little firmer. So I went on a hunt and googled the pie from the movie and came across the original recipe by Lee Ann Fleming from the movie The Help. How cool is that? You can get Minny’s Original Chocolate Pie recipe here.

On the other hand, today I am sharing with you the first one I made, because we really adored it.
