Here’s a pie that should put a smile on your face: Candy Bar Pie

Candy Bar Pie - Recipe Girl (1)

Today’s recipe is dedicated to my sweet friend Joan- creator of the much-loved blog, ChocolateChocolateAndMore. Joan passed away unexpectedly last week at the young age of 49. She went to bed complaining of nauseaand never woke up. It turns out that Joan died of a major heart-attack. Nauseais one of 6 heart attack symptoms in women. It’s important to take a peek at these symptoms as they are different for women than they are for men.

Joan was such a lovely person inside and out. Her laugh was contagious, she was generous and kind, and she had a great mind for business. We talked and messaged each other quite often- sharing advice with each other about our blogs. As you can imagine, everyone who knew her is devastated to lose her. She leaves behind three children who she gushed about often.

I know that Joan would approve of the recipe I’m sharing today- a chocolate candy bar pie! Of course, Joan loved chocolate. I hope she’s watching over all of the bloggers who are celebrating her today… as she is in our thoughts onNational Chocolate Day…Joan’s day.

This pie has a walnut crust, so it just happens to be gluten-free. There is a rich layer of chocolate cream on the bottom, then whipped cream and chopped chocolate-toffee bars on top.

If I could give Joan a slice as big as the one missing from my pie… I think she’d like that 🙂

Here’s a photo from the last day I spent with Joan- back in March. We had spent theweekend together at a beach house in Monterey with some of our favorite food blogging friends – chatting about business and creating tons of memories. I’ll never forget our last lunch together- salad and wine… overlooking the ocean. That’s Joan on the left… always a smile on her face. I’ll miss you Joan. And every time I eat chocolate, I’m going to be thinking of you.
