Chocolate Sweet Potato Pie

chocolate sweet potato pie
Chocolate sweet potato pie is a great way to mix things up. I love how it starts with the chocolate and ends with the sweet potato.  

I used my Mom's Pumpkin Pie recipe as a base since that's what we use for all pumpkin, butternut, and sweet potato pie and made some adjustments to accommodate the chocolate.

Chocolate Sweet Potato Pie 
1 1/2 cups sweet potato puree
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ginger
1/4 teaspoon cloves
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup heavy cream
4 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

Add dry ingredients to a bowl followed by eggs and sweet potato. Gradually mix in cream.  Pour into a pie shell and bake at 400 for 45 minutes to an hour - until when knife tested the knife comes out clean.
