This recipe was originally posted by Alison on the old board.

I want to make it, so I thought I'd bring it on over for others.


R: Chocolate Malt Ball Pie
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This is an Emeril Recipe I conquered last night. I did however make a few variations:
1. I didn't make the crust listed, I just used Graham cracker crust.
2. I used fat free whipped topping instead of making the whipped cream to save time, and calories.
3. I mixed a full cup of crushed whoppers into the mix instead of 1/2 cup.
4. Despite what it says in the directions, I used fat free "Fit Milk" in place of whole milk, it worked out fine.

This was a great pie! Not too rich and satisfied the chocolate craving!

Thanks! :bounce:

I have a friend who is 'down in the dumps' and probably about to lose his business. :( :( :(

However, his favorite candy is Malted Milk Balls....so.....I think I'll make this for him and see if it can't cheer him up, even if only for a few minutes. ;)

Thanks again. :D
