Chocolate Truffle Pie

 

One weekend while visiting my sister and her husband, she made me try this recipe, I was in love with it. I mean who wouldn’t be, it involves chocolate!  After I ate my first bite she told me that this pie was made with no sugar or flour.  I insisted that she send me the recipe so that I could make it for my co-workers and for my blog.  ENJOY!
