Happy Valentine’s Day to all you love birds out there! Its the one day out of the entire year that more chocolate and candies are sold. Why not make your sweetie (or yourself… because you’re definitely worthy of this delightful dessert) a CHOCOLATE TRUFFLE PIE.
This pie is not only beautiful in presentation, it literally taste like a giant Godiva Dark Chocolate Truffle- minus the chocolate shell and plus a Oreo cookie crust. 
The strangest thing about the pie happens to also be the most awesome thing about this pie: only 1/4 cup sugar in the entire thing!! aka LO-CARB!! Any dessert that has that little sugar makes me feel so much less guilty (even if there is 240 grams of fat per serving).


Let me know how you like it!

That looks so good! I guess we just won't count the sugar in the chips or the crust, right?
