Ingredients

How to make it

  • For crust:
  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Mix cookies crumbs and butter and blend to moisten crumbs. Firmly press mixture into 9-inch-diameter loose bottom tart pan. Bake until crust sets, about 8 minutes. Cool.
  • For filling:
  • Whisk sugar, cocoa, and cornstarch in heavy medium saucepan. Gradually whisk in 1 cup half and half (or cream). Whisk in remaining 2 1/2 cups half and half (or cream) and yolks. Whisk over medium-high heat until mixture thickens and boils, whisking constantly, about 12 minutes. Remove from heat. Add both chocolates and butter; whisk until melted and smooth. Mix in vanilla. Transfer filling to crust. Press plastic wrap directly onto surface of filling and chill until filling sets, at least 6 hours.
  • For topping:
  • Beat all ingredients in large bowl until peaks form. (Can be made 1 day ahead. Cover and refrigerate. Beat again to thicken before serving, if necessary.)
  • Peel plastic off pie. Spread cream over top and sift cocoa powder in a decorative way.

    This recipe has everything it takes to make a great chocolate pie. I like that you add expresso powder on the pie. That's very clever and I'll definitely be making this recipe soon. Coffee and chocolate are the perfect match! Thanks for another lovely recipe!
