Dig into this pie for Valentine's Day. Together. Or not. But do dig in.
I just checked my ‘Hot or Not’ rating, and it appears I’ve landed at a solid 5.60, which means 46 of 77 people think I’m hot.
Yesterday, Tinder was blowing up my phone. Another dating app installed by my tweens in their efforts to modernize me and find me my One True Human.
Mom dating is not hot. Put that in your app and swipe right. I’ve had to relearn how to dodge sloppy kisses, turn down marriage proposals, and rethink my approach to bearded lumberjacks. It’s weird.
Which is why I’m all sorts of glad that I’ve discovered something better than sex.
Having been out there, on location in the world of love, I can confidently report that you need this pie in your life more than you need bikini hot tub nights and awkward car conversations wherein you learn your date is passionate about large cats and hot-dog eating competitions.
Come, let us celebrate the simple perfection of pie instead!
Pre-bake a Pillsbury refrigerated pie crust, then prepare to amaze your face.
Start by spreading a rich dollop of thick, chocolatey hot fudge sauce over your cooled, pre-baked crust. Go for the good stuff – you want this bottom layer to wow your pants off.
Now top it with a super-secret chocolate cream cheese ganache truffle filling. Yeah, we just did that. Chocolate. Cream Cheese. Ganache. Truffle. Meow meow. Filling.
Caramel goes on top. Because, love. Again, buy the good pre-made stuff. The stuff in a glass bottle that barely wiggles when you turn the bottle upside-down – because it’s so hopelessly devoted to being caramel.
Whipped topping goes on top. Then drizzle chocolate. Drizzle caramel. Sprinkle toffee bits. Sprinkle mini peanut butter cups. Freeze. Fork. Face.
Now put away that Tinder app! True love hath already found you.
