As all good grandfathers and great-uncles alike confirm – there is a sure-fire way to a man’s heart – through his stomach. This is why my traditional Derby Pie has been coined, Win A Guy Pie. In case you’re ever out looking for a guy of your very own, look no further and turn to this simple knock-out of a pie. It has something for everybody and is sure to impress that cute neighbor or it can really light a fire under your too-comfortable boyfriend. Or, hell. This pie alone is better than any boyfriend on a lonely night, for that matter.

This rich and decadent pie can really be taken anyway you want it. 

  • Sweet and Salty – add less chocolate chips, more walnuts and a dash of nutmeg (1/2 tablespoon)
  • Smooth and Rich - add more chocolate chips and some good ol’ Bourbon (up to 1/4 cup)
  • Sweet and Spicy - add some ginger (1/2 teaspoon) or cinnamon (up to 1 tablespoon)
  • Short and Sweet - just add a dash of vanilla (up to 1 tablespoon)
Any direction you take it – you will love this pie and so will your guy.

This is truly a fool-proof pie. You just can’t go wrong! Let it sit, but serve warm with whipped cream (there are some fun flavored whipped cream recipes out there that work perfectly with this – I suggest googling Flavored Whipped Cream recipes.
