Dust off those big, fancy hats and pick your favorite horse, because the Kentucky Derby is this weekend!

One of the Kentucky Derby traditions is the Kentucky Derby Pie, a decadent chocolate and pecan dessert. It was created by George Kern at the Melrose Inn of Prospect, Kentucky.  Churchill Downs has served the Kentucky Derby Pie for more than 20 years. On Kentucky Derby day, race track vendors sell more than 25,000 slices!   Whip up this quick and easy version to celebrate this weekend.  And, of course, don’t forget a nice, cold Mint Julep!
