Chocolate Dream Pie

This is beyond amazing and melts in your mouth. Turn all the noises off in your house (people included). Sit down with a cup of coffee and a slice of this pie. Savor every bite...

You will love or hate me after making this!

Wow... this is one of those desserts that's easy to make but looks and tastes like you spent all day preparing it. The crust is buttery, flaky and perfect with all the chocolate. The dual chocolate layers are genius. The bottom dark chocolate layer is rich and creamy. The chocolate mousse layer is silky smooth and melts in your mouth. It's definitely a decadent dessert everyone will ask for a second slice of. It's heavenly. The Test Kitchen

How to Make Chocolate Dream Pie


  • Pie crust baking in the oven.
    1Make up your pie crust and bake per directions. Make some decorations up too with your scraps! Coat the scraps with egg wash for a nice golden color.

    You can use any pie crust recipe but you may want to try mine. It doesn't shrink that bad after baking without any filling inside. I don't put any beans in it either and it bakes so good. Light and flaky!
  • Egg yolks in a bowl.
    2Mix your egg yolks in a medium bowl and set aside.
  • Dry ingredients in a bowl.
    3In another medium bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, cocoa, and a dash of salt. Set aside.
  • Milk and cream heating in a saucepan.
    4In a medium sauce pan, add your milk and cream just until hot... NOT BOILING.

    Add half of the hot milk and cream into the flour mixture and whisk together. Test with your finger and make sure it's not too hot.
  • Adding egg yolks to mixture.
    5Then add your egg yolks whisking them into the mixture until well blended. (You don't want to cook the eggs so make sure you do not boil your milk.)
  • Pouring mixture into warmed milk.
    6Pour the mixture into the other half of your milk you have left in your sauce pan.

    On medium heat stir until really thick, shouldn't take that long but don't leave the pan and don't stop stirring. Nobody likes a lumpy pudding!
  • Stirring mixture until thick.
    7After it gets real thick, take off burner and whip in your vanilla extract.

    NOTE: This pudding will be pretty thick, perfect for pie. If you want to make pudding cups then don't cook it as long, as soon as it starts getting thick pour into your serving dishes.
  • 8Pour evenly into your pie shells. Let that cool down completely.
  • Prepared chocolate mousse.
    9Make your chocolate mousse (per package instructions) and spread on your cooled pudding. Let that chill.
  • Top with whipped cream, decorations and it you really want to kick it off...
    10Top with whipped cream, decorations and it you really want to kick it off make some chocolate ganache and pour on top of the whipped cream. Don't add the whipped cream until serving.
