Oh Chocolate. If you follow me, you know how much I love chocolate.  I mean, you could just go look in my dessert section and see. Ha! 
Anyways, chocolate pie is such a staple in the South. Pie in general, really.  This pie is a pie my aunt always bragged about.  Before she made it for me, I tried it out on my own and have never stopped making it since! 


  • 1 premade pie shell (deep, if you don't want leftover mixture- which is good for pudding)
  • 1 cup sugar 
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch 
  • 1/4 tsp salt 
  • 3 cups milk 
  • 4 large egg yolks 
  • 4 oz unsweet chocolate 
  • 1 oz intense dark chocolate 
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract 
  • 1 cup whipped cream for topping
  • Reserved dark chocolate for shaving 


  • Directions: 
  • Heat oven according to directions for your pie shell 
  • Cook accordingly 
  • In a medium sauce pan place sugar, cornstarch and salt 
  • Start to heat it
  • Mix eggs and milk in a bowl
