Follow along as we guide you through the process of creating a dessert masterpiece that will leave everyone begging for seconds.

The Perfect Crust

No pie is complete without a perfectly baked crust, and this cooked chocolate pie recipe is no exception. To achieve the ideal texture and flavor, we’ll be using a combination of crushed graham crackers, melted butter, sugar, and a pinch of salt.

Start by preheating your oven to 350°F (175°C). In a mixing bowl, combine 1 ½ cups of crushed graham crackers with ¼ cup of granulated sugar and a pinch of salt. Stir in ⅓ cup of melted butter until the mixture resembles wet sand.

Press the crumb mixture firmly into the bottom and sides of a 9-inch pie dish. Make sure to evenly distribute the crumbs to ensure an even bake. Bake the crust in the preheated oven for about 10 minutes or until golden brown. Remove it from the oven and let it cool completely before moving on to the next step.

The Luscious Chocolate Filling

Now that our crust is ready, it’s time to move on to the star of the show – the luscious chocolate filling. For this recipe, we’ll be using high-quality semisweet chocolate chips, whole milk, heavy cream, sugar, cornstarch, vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt.

In a medium-sized saucepan over medium heat, combine 1 ½ cups of whole milk, ½ cup of heavy cream, ⅓ cup of granulated sugar, 2 tablespoons of cornstarch, and a pinch of salt. Whisk the mixture constantly until it begins to thicken and come to a gentle boil.

Once the mixture has thickened, remove it from the heat and add 1 cup of semisweet chocolate chips and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract. Stir until the chocolate chips have melted completely and the filling is smooth and glossy.

Pour the chocolate filling into the cooled crust, smoothing it out with a spatula to create an even layer. Place the pie in the refrigerator for at least two hours or until set.

Topping it Off

To take this cooked chocolate pie to another level of indulgence, we need a delicious topping. Whip up some fresh whipped cream using heavy cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract. In a chilled mixing bowl, beat 1 cup of cold heavy cream until soft peaks form. Add in 2 tablespoons of powdered sugar and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract. Continue beating until stiff peaks form.

Spread the whipped cream over the chilled chocolate filling, creating beautiful peaks with a spoon or piping bag if desired. For an extra touch, sprinkle some shaved chocolate or cocoa powder on top for added visual appeal.

Serving Suggestions

Now that your cooked chocolate pie is ready to be devoured, let’s talk about serving suggestions. This rich and decadent dessert pairs perfectly with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of freshly whipped cream on the side.

For an added twist, try serving your pie with a drizzle of warm caramel sauce or sprinkling some toasted nuts on top for added texture and flavor.

Whether you’re celebrating a special occasion or simply craving something sweet after dinner, this ultimate cooked chocolate pie recipe is sure to satisfy your cravings for richness and indulgence. Gather your ingredients, follow the steps, and get ready to enjoy a slice of chocolate heaven.
