Blue Ribbon Recipe

Your chocolate-loving friends will be begging for another slice of this chocolate chess pie. It's a snap to prepare and so tasty, you'll have problems making it on request. Chess pies are custard-like with a slightly jiggly center. This version is full of chocolate flavor too. When serving, add a dollop of whipped cream or a dusting of cocoa for an impressive chocolate dessert. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Chocolate Chess Pie


  1. Mix first 6 ingredients in mixing bowl; beat 1 minute.
  2. Pour into pie crust.
  3. Bake in preheated 350 degrees oven for 1 hour. Covering the edges of the pie with a pie shield or aluminum foil for half the baking time will prevent the crust from over-browning.
  4. If the middle hasn't risen after an hour, cook the pie 5 to 10 minutes longer. Make sure the middle of the pie has risen so you know it has cooked completely.
  5. Let cool.
