Mom’s Chocolate Pie

Leave a comment

November 26, 2009 by Erica

I use the pie crust from the Pumpkin Pie Recipe, but you can use whichever crust you prefer.  My mom tops hers with meringue, but I’ve never been a fan of meringue, so I leave it off.


1 ½ cups sugar

½ tsp table salt

2 ½ Tbsp cornstarch

1 Tbsp flour

3 oz unsweetened chocolate

3 cups whole milk

3 egg yolks, lightly beaten

1 Tbsp butter

1 ½ tsp vanilla extract


In large saucepan stir together sugar, salt, cornstarch, flour, and unsweetened chocolate.  Gradually stir in milk.

Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until mixture thickens and boils.  Boil 1 minute; remove from heat.

Temper eggs into mixture, then return to boil.  Boil 1 minute more; remove from heat.  Stir in butter and vanilla extract.

Pour into prepared 9” pie shell, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate.
