Easy Chocolate Pie

Easy Chocolate Pie

by Amy Flanigan on March 27, 2014 · 22 comments

I hoard pie recipes. I have a a folder full of them, cookbooks, and a Pinterest board. The thing is, nobody ever requests pie. It’s always, “Mommy, can we make cookies?” or “Mom, can I have cupcakes for my birthday?” or “Hey Babe, remember those brownies….”

Ugh. It’s like they don’t even know me! 

So, the pie recipes keep building. I pretty much used National Pie Day as an excuse to try a bunch of them out. You know, for work and all.

Easy Chocolate Pie

National Pie Day may be waaaay over. And Valentine’s Day is loooong gone. But nothing says I love you like chocolate. Anytime. In any form.

Easy Chocolate Pie

Especially this pie.

Easy Chocolate Pie
Serves 8
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 55 minutes

Ingredients
• 1 (9 inch) Pillsbury refrigerated prepared pie crust
• 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
• 3 1/2 tablespoons cocoa powder
• 2 eggs
• 1/2 stick unsalted butter, melted
• 1 (5 ounce) can evaporated milk
• whipped cream, optional

Directions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, whisk together the sugar and cocoa powder. Whisk in the eggs, butter, and evaporated milk until combined (batter will be thin.)

Pour batter into the pie crust and bake for about 55 minutes or until the filling sets and there is a thin crust on the top. Let cool, slice and serve with a little whipped cream if you desire!

A pie recipe hoarder huh. That sounds mighty interesting to me! This definitely falls into the easy category. But I think I would still make a homemade crust even though its not my most favorite thing to do.

I fully support homemade pie crust! I just don’t have the time…

Ooooh, yum! Isn’t pie at the top of the food pyramid (or whatever they’re using these days)? Maybe we could lobby for a new law requiring that we eat pie every day.

It should be! That would be an easy law to abide by :)

I am always happy eating pie, so maybe we should just keep inventing holidays that necessitate making/eating them. Like, today is the last Thursday in March! So – pie time.

Drooling over this chocolate goodness.

YES!! Chocolate in any way, shape, or form is ALWAYS welcome! And if you ever want to test out a few more of those pie recipes, I’d be happy to take them off your hands. (As would quite a few hungry grad students I know. They’re brilliant at making desserts disappear in mere seconds!)

See, and I’m terrible at pies and my husband adores them. I need to remember to make a proper pie for his next birthday instead of just the cake I want to eat :)

Isn’t that funny; I never think to make pie even though I do enjoy it (though maybe not as much as you). I do know that my family would go crazy for this chocolate pie, especially our daughter. She’s one of those chocolate fiends.

Yow, this sounds great!!!! Maybe I’ll make it this weekend, now that I’ve taken everything to the CPA.

Amy @Very Culinary March 27, 2014 at 3:54 pm

I think that requires something stronger…like vodka. ;-)
