Chocolate Cream Pie, By Cass

Cassie *


There is nothing like a nice creamy slice of chocolate cream pie. Especially if the pudding is homemade. My Gram taught me how to make this pie years ago..her trick was the condensed it a bit richer flavor..Yum!!

You can serve this with meringue or cool whip..I made the meringue, but actually prefer it with whipped cream and chocolate curls..all I had was semi sweet bakers chocolate, so improvised, and grated finely to sprinkle on the meringue..

Hope you enjoy this pie as much as my family does..

How to Make Chocolate Cream Pie, By Cass


  • 1Preheat oven to 350 degree

    Assemble ingredients.
  • 2Prick your pie crust on the bottom and sides with a fork before baking.
  • 3In a medium saucepan; combine the sugar, cocoa,salt and corn starch.
  • 4Add one cup of condensed milk and 1 cup of whole milk, or 2 %, that's what I use.

    Using a whisk blend the mixture together and stir constantly over medium high heat. When the mixture is heated through add the 3 egg yolks, after tempering with a little of the hot mixture, so as not to have scrambled eggs.

    Stir continuously ; until thickened and bubbly.
  • 5Remove from heat and add the butter, and vanilla, mix well.
  • 6Cover your pudding with plastic wrap to prevent a film on top of the pudding; set aside.

    If you are just using whipped cream, fill the pie shell, add the whipped cream and chocolate shavings if desired.

    Refrigerate to cool at least 2 hours.
  • 7For meringue:

    In a large bowl, beat egg whites, cornstarch and cream of tartar on high speed with an electric mixer. Mix until soft peaks form.

    Add sugar one tablespoon at a time, beating well after each addition.

    Spread meringue on the pie. Broil to lightly brown the top. Do not walk away at this stage. It only takes a minute.

    Or you can bake in oven till desired browness occurs.
  • 8Enjoy!!
