How to make it

  • In a 3 qt. pan heat milk just until it starts to boil. Mix sugar, salt, and cornstarch in a small bowl. Add egg yolks to sugar mixture and mix. (It will be thick) Mix in a small amount of the hot milk to the yolk mixture. (called "tempering") Then add yolk mix to hot milk. Cook over medium heat until mixture thickens. Remove from heat and add chocolate and vanilla. Mix until chocolate is melted. Using a very fine strainer...strain mixture. Pour into pie shell. Cover with plastic wrap making sure to push wrap onto the chocolate filling (prevents a skin from forming). Chill pie in refigerator. When filling has totally chilled (about 3 hours) top with whipped cream and a dusting of cocoa powder.

    Thanks soooo much for the recipe! This sounds just like the one my Mom used to make and I didn't have the recipe. It was the best chocolate cream pie ever! I'm going to be making this very soon. Hi-5 for sure!

    Recipe sounds great but I need to ask before I make it if it is a dark chocolate or milk chocolate?
