Yum Alert: Kentucky Bourbon Chocolate Pie

Written by Ashley

When bourbon & chocolate collide, a star is born.

Two of my favorite things, chocolate & bourbon, come together to form one of my ultimate favorites: PIE. Dubbed (and trademarked) the Derby Pie for special Kentucky Derby occasions, I’m fairly sure I’ll be making this for every occasion under the sun.
