I can’t believe it’s Thanksgiving already!! I will be making a few pies. Yes… I’m going to make homemade pies! Yikes. One being my Great-Grandma Chunkie’s Chocolate Pie. Grandma Chunkie (real name Lilly Maybell) was a little spitfire. She had purplish pink (sometimes blue!) hair and always made you laugh. She also made THE best pies! Usually for our Thanksgiving dinners, we would have about 3 pumpkin pies along with banana, lemon and chocolate. She always made me my own mini chocolate pie. A tradition, I want to start with my kids.

For all you chocoholics, this pie is a must! Here’s the recipe that she wrote on a small piece of paper:

Grandma Chunkie’s Easy to Make Rich & Creamy Chocolate Pie

• One large Hershey Candy Bar (milk chocolate) 8 oz (now I get 2 large chocolate bars)

• 18 large marshmallows cut up

• 1/2 cup sweet milk (I don’t know what that meant… so I just use regular milk)

• 18 oz. Cool Whip

• Melt Candy bar and marshmallows in milk over low fire until smooth. Cool.

• Add 1-9 oz Cool Whip into chocolate mixture

• Pour into baked pie shell and keep cool until ready to serve.

Don’t forget to spoon a large helping of Cool Whip on your slice of pie! (I like to add chocolate sprinkles too)


Here is my attempt at making cute Thanksgiving Cookies .

I forgot to get malt balls! But, I think they turned out cute enough. My daughter didn’t seem to mind. She gobbled them up!


My son came home from school with the cutest book. Each kid wrote how they thought you cooked a turkey, then the teacher bound them together to make this book.

This is what my son said…

The left side is me shopping at Target for the turkey, middle is the turkey in the oven, right side is him and his dad eating the turkey. So no love for me and baby sister?? Only the boys get to eat I guess:-)

I laughed out loud at what this kid wrote…

Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!! After taking a turkey nap, my mom is going to help me organize my closets, cabinets and office.

  5. Here in the south, whole milk is often called sweet milk as opposed to buttermilk which is a common ingredient in southern dishes. So, yes you were right sweet milk is “regular” milk. 🙂

    I’ll bet the pie is fabulous. The cookies looked so cute! My kids would love them and they’d be fun to make!
