We really love PIE. So over the next few weeks, I thought I’d share some more of our favorites. Next up- this delicious one. Why not start with the chocolate? Chocolate makes everything better.
Dark Chocolate Cream Pie
4 oz. cook n serve chocolate pudding powder
1/2 cup cornstarch
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup dark cocoa
5 cups half n half
2 eggs, whisked together
Chocolate cookie crust (premade or you can make your own)
Add sugar, pudding powder, cocoa, and cornstarch to a large saucepan. Whisk together. Add whole milk or half n half and eggs. Stirring constantly, bring to a boil. Boil pudding for only 1 minute. Remove from heat. As pudding cools, mix with beaters for 3-4 minutes. Beat every 10 minutes or so until totally cool. Room temperature.
Whip the heavy cream until stiff peaks form. Add ½ cup powdered sugar and 1 tsp. vanilla. Set aside.
Pour the cooled pudding into a prepared chocolate cookie pie crust or baked and cooled pie crust. Smooth out covering to the edges of the pie crust, cool. Then top with whipped cream.
Happy Pie Baking! XO
