SNOW GHOST COCOA CREAM PIE: Retro Ad with Recipe for Halloween!

Here's a Retro Hershey's Ad with Recipe for a Snow Ghost Pie aka Snow Ghost Cocoa Cream Pie. This is perfect for Halloween!! 

This Retro Ad from Hershey says "Snow Ghost Pie tastes as good today as it did when Granma baked in back in '33." I wasn't around in 33, and I doubt my grandmother would have baked this, but I've made it since. This recipe appeared in the original 1934 Hershey's Cookbook (and the facsimile). There's a story in the Advertisement that you'll want to read.  Not sure if Hershey was doing this as a take-off of the Baker's Chocolate Story Ads with Recipes..

So celebrate Halloween with Snow Ghost Pie!

Snow Ghost Cocoa Cream Pie 

1 9-inch baked pastry shell or crumb crust
1/2 cup Hershey’s Cocoa
1 1/4 cups sugar
1/3 cup cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 cups milk
3 tablespoons butter
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
Sweetened whipped cream

Combine cocoa, sugar, salt, and cornstarch in medium saucepan. Gradually blend milk into dry ingredients, stirring until smooth. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until filling boils; boil 1 minute. Remove from heat; blend in butter and vanilla. Pour into pie crust. Carefully press plastic wrap directly onto pie filling. Cool; chill 3 to 4 hours.
Garnish with whipped cream.
