Give us ALL the chocolate pies! It’s a recurring theme, there’s German chocolate, chocolate chess, chocolate cinnamon mousse, chocolate cream and actually about 5 more chocolate pies, so did we really need another one…..YES!! Introducing this beautifully smooth, super chocolatey, fudge-like, chewy chocolate brownie pie. This one came my way from a fellow baker and friend named Kristin, not our sister Kristin, but same name (possible two Kristin’s blog in the future??). It’s nice when your rep for chocolate pie making is so renowned that amazing recipes like this come to you without having to search and find them. This pie is a cinch to make and you can really change up the flavor by using milk chocolate for a lighter sweeter pie. We prefer the dark stuff, but suit yourself – either way I know you’ll love it!
1 9″ unbaked traditional pie crust – we recommend you use ours!
1 cup chocolate pieces (you can use chocolate chips, milk, semi, or chopped up dark chocolate – whatever you’re in the mood for)
2/3 cup evaporated milk
2 tablespoons butter
2 eggs beaten
3/4 cup sugar (reduce if using milk chocolate)
2 tablespoons flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
- Preheat oven to 375. Combine chocolate pieces, evaporated milk and butter in a small saucepan. Cook over low heat until mixture is creamy and smooth.
- Combine remaining ingredients and gradually stir in the chocolate mixture.
- Pour (through a fine sieve if you want to avoid any lumps) into prepared pie shell. Bake at 375 for about 35-40 minutes or until firm around edges and barely jiggly in the center.
