Prep:

4 Hr

Method:

Refrigerate/Freeze

Ingredients

1
whole pie crust, baked and cooled (or can use oreo or graham cracker crust)
1 1/2 c
sugar
1/4 c
cornstarch
1/4 tsp
salt
3 c
whole milk
4
whole egg yolks
6 1/2 oz
weight bittersweet chocolate, chopped finely
2 tsp
vanilla extract
2 Tbsp
butter
whipped cream, for serving

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Combine the sugar, cornstarch, and salt in a medium saucepan. Stir or whisk together.
2
Pour in milk and egg yolks, and whisk together.
3
Stir over medium heat until the mixture just barely comes to a boil and becomes thick, about 6-8 minutes (maybe less, maybe more; just watch it!) The second it starts to bubble and thicken (note: It should be thick like pudding!) remove it from the heat. Add the chocolate, vanilla, and butter, and stir until everything is beautifully combined.
4
Pour the pudding into the pie crust (if there is extra, spoon it into small dishes) and place in the fridge to chill for 4 hours uncovered.
5
Cut into slices and serve with whipped cream!
