  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • 1 prepared (baked) 9" pie crust
  • 1 ½ cups granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup + 1 Tbsp cornstarch
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 5 large egg yolks
  • 2 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 6 oz dark chocolate--finely chopped
  • 4 Tablespoons butter cut into pieces
  • 1 ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Homemade Whipped Cream
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


In medium saucepan, whisk together sugar, cornstarch and salt.
Add egg yolks, milk, and heavy cream and transfer to stovetop over medium-high heat and whisk ingredients together.
Stir ingredients continuously on medium-high heat until ingredients begin to thicken, as soon as mixture begins to bubble (begins to come to a boil), remove from heat and add in chocolate, butter, and vanilla.
Whisk until ingredients are smooth and chocolate and butter are completely melted.
Pour your pie filling through a fine mesh sieve into a medium-sized heatproof bowl. Allow to cool for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent skin from forming.
Pour filling over prepared pie crust and wrap with clear wrap, making sure that the clear wrap is pressed against the surface of the chocolate to prevent a skin from forming.
Refrigerate at least 4-6 hours to allow chocolate pie to firm up and set.

Homemade Whipped Cream
Prepare Whipped Cream shortly before serving pie.
Combine 3/4 cup heavy cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract in a clean medium-sized bowl.
Use an electric mixer to stir on low-speed. Gradually increase speed to high and beat until stiff peaks form.
Pipe or scoop whipped cream topping over pie just before serving.
