WRAL reporter Brian Shrader and our own Lisa Prince feature seasonal recipes in their Got to Be Good Cookin’ segment using ingredients grown and available right here in North Carolina.
Brian and Lisa get their just desserts as they finish a month of blue-ribbon recipes from the 2010 N.C. State Fair specialty cooking contest. This week’s recipe for triple chocolate delight was created by 11-year-old Noah Guthrie for the Pillsbury Pet-Ritz Pie Baking Championship. As the name implies, the dessert is made with three layers of chocolate – fudge brownie mix, chocolate mousse and candy-bar crumbles. Add a layer of frozen whipped topping and a Pet-Ritz deep-dish pie crust, and you’ve got your own prize-winning treat to enjoy at home.
