Minny's Chocolate Pie only for Hilly!

Posted by germz at 12:27 PM
I have no regrets watching the Help. I was skeptical at first watching a documentary-or-history-type of film. But I finished it with a big smile (big laugh, I guess!) The movie was not really pure drama or slavery (at the first scenes though because it should be). It was for real a life about real people taking a stand for their lives and they did actually get what they want or should be of being not afraid to take a stand no matter what color they have.

The story revolved around the two characters of Aibileen and Skeeter. Yes, they are from different colors but this type of color seemed to be homogeneous since there's one thing which bothers them both--The help. Aibileen is a black maid taking care of a white child while Skeeter is a white who too grew up with a black maid, Constantine. They both dangerously put their lives at stake about the writing of stories from the black side since it is against the law. But in the end, they succeeded finishing the book with Skeeter's very own story with Constantine as the last part.

I do have my favorite scenes and characters as well as the hates. I'll start with my fave character Celia Foote. I thought she was like anybody else but she was the other white who is different. Though sadly, she was like a colored one since the white people does not like her that much (its because of the alleged stealing of Hilly's boyfriend before). I so like the way she treated Minny (exceptionally the opposite from Hilly's treatment). It was even funny that Minny was the one who was telling Celia about what is supposed to do.

On the other hand, Minny is very lovable. A good cook by the way and my favorite is her Chocolate Pie only for Hilly! Below is my favorite scene.
The help

And I came across with this recipe. Don't worry it's not the Pie only for hilly!=) Anyway, it's you who'll be making this one, for sure you'll not be adding any shit. Except with poor sanitation, you surely end up with diarrhea. But seriously, here it is.

1 1/4 cups sugar
3 1/2 tablespoons cocoa
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla
5 ounces Pet milk (evaporated)
2 eggs
1 pie crust, uncooked

Preheat oven to 325°F.
Mix everything together in one big bowl.
You don’t have to bake the crust first, prick the bottom of it.
Pour filling into crust.
Bake for about 50 minutes. Let the pie set for a long while once it comes out of the oven. I think this definitely tastes better room temperature.
If you’d like, serve with a big scoop of ice-cream, some fruit, a little whipped cream, or straight out of the pie plate!
