Election Day Pie

So given that I am a history graduate student, you know that election day is a pretty exciting day for me. There's been hundreds of election-day traditions that have cropped up since the first American election, and I'd argue that most of them involve food in some way, shape, or form. This Red Velvet Chocolate Chip Brownie Pie is my contribution to this culinary tradition. Happy Voting! And please ignore how lop-sided my icing job is..

1/2c Butter (softened)
1.5c Sugar
2 Eggs
1.25c Flour
1/4tsp Salt
3tbsp Cocoa Powder
2tsp Vanilla
15-20drops Red Food Coloring 
1c Mini Chocolate Chips
1 Pie Crust (Pre-Packaged)
1pkg Cream Cheese Frosting
Blue Sprinkles

OVEN: 350F

1. In a small bowl, combine the cocoa powder, vanilla, and red food coloring. Set aside.

2. Cream together butter and sugar in a standing mixer until fluffy. 

3. Add in eggs and then the cocoa powder mixture.

4. Mix in flour and salt. 

5. Stir in the mini chocolate chips.

7. After the pie is completely cooled, ice with the cream cheese frosting in whatever way suits your fancy.
