Raw Dark Chocolate Cherry Pie Recipe
Monday, Dec 19, 2011 - 11:19 am
I love delicious inspiration! I made a chocolate pie and found I was out of some of my normal ingredients, so I made a new recipe. YUM!
I made two versions of this pie. The version on the left had a better tasting pie, and the version on the right had a better topping. I am sharing version 1 pie recipe with version 2 topping. My apologies for the grainy photos - they were taken with cell phones.
