Chocolate Stout Cream Pie

Chocolate cream pie is good any time of the year and any time of the day. Thanksgiving? Sure. Breakfast? Even better. The flavor of this chocolate cream pie is elevated with the addition of dark, stout beer and strong brewed coffee. Topped with freshly, sweetened whipped cream and chocolate shavings, it is just fancy enough to impress your friends, while still having the comfort of a homemade cream pie.

And bonus, it makes TWO! One for you and one for a friend, or keep both for yourself, that's what I would do.
