Ingredients

Chocolate Crumb Crust

  • 2 1/2 cups chocolate graham cracker crumbs
  • 10 tbsp unsalted butter Vermont Creamery

Chocolate Pie Filling

  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup corn starch
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 5 egg yolks
  • 3 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 ounces bittersweet chocolate chopped

Instructions

Chocolate Crumb Crust

  • Simply add the chocolate graham crackers into a blender or food processor and pulse until fine crumbs. Pour the crumbs into a mixing bowl. 
  • Next, melt the butter in a small bowl and add it to the crumbs. Mix using a spatula, then firmly press into a pie dish.
  • Bake this crust in a 375-degree oven for 15 minutes and then let it cool. Super simple!

Chocolate Pie Filling

  • Prepare all of the ingredients and have them close by. 
  • First, add the cornstarch, sugar, and salt into the medium saucepan and whisk them together.
  • Then, turn the burner to medium-low and slowly add in the milk, constantly whisking so it doesn’t burn on the bottom. Let the mixture come to a soft boil (about 6 minutes) while you’re whisking. You want it to thicken up, you’ll start to feel the tug on the whisk when it thickens.
  • Next, add in the chopped chocolate and let it melt in the milk mixture. Still, constantly whisking. 
  • Add in the egg yolks and continue whisking and thinking about the mixture. 
  • Bring the mixture to a simmer and cook for another 3 minutes while stirring. The mix should be thick like pudding, about 160 degrees on a candy thermometer. 
  • Turn off the heat and add in the butter and vanilla, stir and pour the mixture into the prepared crumb crust. 
  • Let the pie thicken and cool in the refrigerator, uncovered, for 4 hours or overnight. 
  • Top with whipped cream. You can use store-bought or make your own!
  • To make your own whipped cream, beat 2 cups of heavy cream with 4 tablespoons of confectioners sugar and 2 teaspoons of vanilla until soft peaks form. 
  • For this pie, I scooped whipped cream over the top and then topped with grated chocolate. I love the way it looks!
