CHOCOLATE PIXIE PIE: Vintage Ad & Recipe

It's a beautiful Spring Day! The flowers are blooming, the warm breezes are blowing--a perfect day to make Chocolate Pixie Pie. This Baker's Chocolate advertisement is from April 4, 1955.  As always, you can adapt this retro recipe to today's palette by substituting your own ingredients.

GREAT ad, Janet! To think all it took was a Pixie Pie to turn a husband into a sweetheart:) Oh the 50s!

Thanks for sharing...

I have been looking for this recipe for years. I lost my copy many years ago. However mine was not out of a magazine ad. Not sure what product my mother got it with, but the recipe was on a folded heavy paper insert of some kind. It was definitely the same recipe and ingredient brands shown. The difference as I recall were more than i picture and several variations. I think maybe there was a chocolate crust variation and some differences on the toppings. Hence the reason for the insert as it included pictures for all the variations, not included in the single magazine ad.
