Bakin’ With The King for Halloween!


BOO!!!!!!   It’s me – your Bacon King!


What? No bacon? Well I just had to share this easy peasy recipe with you in time for Halloween because – well – the ROYAL MOM made it and it was just so yummy we had to tell you about it even if it doesn’t allow me to show off my BACON RECIPE skills!    

It’s an easy to make dessert and combines two of the Royal Mom’s favorite flavors – – – chocolate and pumpkin…………you may even have made some variation of this before but trust me – this just couldn’t be any more delish or easy.

Easy Chocolate Pumpkin Pie




1  Refrigerated pie crust (I used a Pillsbury one) – of course you could make your own pie crust but this refrigerated one works great 
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
3 eggs
2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1 can (15 oz) pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling)
1 1/2 cups whipping cream
1 tablespoon unsweetened baking cocoa



Heat oven to 350°F.

Unroll pie crust on work surface. Press in bottom and up sides (about 1 inch) of 9-inch tart pan with removable bottom or pie plate.
In large bowl, beat brown sugar and the eggs until thoroughly blended. Gently fold in pumpkin pie spice and pumpkin. Stir in whipping cream.
Reserve 1 cup pumpkin filling.  Pour remaining filling into pie crust.
With whisk, stir together reserved 1 cup pumpkin filling and baking cocoa until no lumps remain. Pour chocolate filling over pumpkin filling in pie plate. Slightly tap sides of plate so 2 fillings combine.
Bake about 50 minutes or until toothpick inserted near center comes out clean. Turn off oven and slightly open oven door; leave pie in oven about 1 hour 30 minutes to cool.
Refrigerate pie 3 hours before serving. Serve with whipped cream.


  • YUMMMM!   Try this for your Halloween dessert!   OR ELSE!  (haha)

Only 7 more shopping days until Halloween!

  1. I have only made a pumpkin pie once when I was given a big pumpkin. I didn’t like it, but looking at this and other recipes I think I should have added spice. I think that would have made a big difference.


    • It really does – sometimes pumpkin almost doesn’t HAVE a taste but the pumpkin spice is lovely – you can make your own pumpkin spice too if you don’t have any or can’t get any.

  2. How perfect for this time of year! As I’ve ‘matured’, I like pumpkin more than when I was younger. We’ll forgive you for a no-bacon recipe this week, Chef Teddy!


  3. Sounds simple and yummy. Kinda like when Mom puts chocolate chips into her pumpkin pancakes. (then refuses to share them with me because – chocolate!) #rude

    Love and licks,


  4. That is one decadent pie!!! Mama tried to roast her pumpkin seeds but they were too tough to eat so went into the compost. Ah, well, maybe pumpkin risotto again. SOOOOO good. Love your pie…..


  5. The grands all love pumpkin pie AND chocolate. So Mom is thinking they would love this pie. Funny story, the twin grands reading teacher wanted to treat her class to some hot cocoa this week. She had her boy friend buy what she thought was a big container of cocoa mix for drinks. She poured a cup for each of the students. They all made a funny face because it tasted terrible. It turns out he bought unsweetened cocoa:) The kids didn’t want to make the teacher feel badly so they didn’t say anything but eventually she figured it out.

  6. Teddy, you are so super scary looking, but the pie sounds scrumptious. Mom loves pumpkin pie and adding chocolate to it sounds divine. Thanks for a recipe that she is certain to make and enjoy.
