This chocolate pie recipe produces a classic, creamy and mouth-watering dessert. Using a tender, sweet pie crust, a few ingredients, a bowl, a whisk and a spatula makes this pie one of the easiest to make with crowd-pleasing results. This pie is perfect for serving on it’s own or crank the flavoring up a notch by plating with fresh berries, caramel or a simple dollop of sweetened whipped cream.

Tips for making the perfect chocolate pie:

  • Pie crust: A tender and sweet crust is one of the stars of this pie (check out my Sweet Dough recipe which works perfectly with this pie). The crust should be partially baked prior to creating the filling. To partially bake a crust:
    • The raw pie crust should be cold before baking.
    • Preheat oven to 350°
    • Using a dinner fork, prick the the bottom of the raw pie crust about 10 – 12 times to create little holes. This will help keep the pie crust from rising.
    • Line the crust with parchment paper or aluminum foil and fill halfway with dried beans for or pie weights
    • Bake for 15 minutes, remove the weighted parchment paper/foil and bake for an additional 5 minutes. Note: the pie crust will not be fully baked. The filling will be added and the final baking will take place..
  • Ingredients: Use a high quality cocoa powder for this recipe. I prefer to use a combination of half dark cocoa and half regular cocoa so I can achieve the dark chocolate look and taste for this pie.

Follow these Simple Steps to Create Your Chocolate Pie!

It is time to assemble and bake your pie once the pie crust is partially baked and completely cool.

  • Preheat oven to 350°
  • Gently melt chocolate pieces in a microwave. Place a heat-proof bowl with chocolate pieces in the microwave for 30 seconds at 50% power and stir. Repeat this process until the chocolate is completely melted. Let cool slightly.
    • Alternatively, melt the chocolate by placing it in a bowl over a pan of simmering water on the stove top (note: the bowl should not touch the water). Stir frequently until the chocolate is melted.
  • Place sugar, cocoa powder and salt in medium sized bowl. Whisk or sift to combine well.
  • Add eggs, melted butter and evaporated milk. Whisk well to combine.
  • Pour mixture into the pie crust. Place the pie on a baking sheet.
  • Bake for 45 minutes. Check the pie crust after 30 minutes of baking. If needed, place a pie shield or a foil wrap on the crust to avoid burning the crust.
  • Cool pie before serving.
