How to Make Paula Jean's Extreme Chocolate Pie

Step-by-Step

  1. Crust: Combine melted butter, graham cracker crumbs and 1/4 c. sugar in a bowl. Mix and press into a 9-inch pie pan and bake at 375 for 8-10 minutes. Set aside to cool while making filling.
  2. Filling: Simmer the half & Half, salt & 3 T. sugar over medium high heat, stirring. Whisk the egg yolks in a bowl until thickened; add the cornstarch and the remaining sugar and continue whisking about a minute.
  3. Drizzle 1/4 c. of the cream mixture into the yolk mixture to temper the eggs. Add another 1/4 c. and continue to stir. Return the yolk mixture to the saucepan with the cream mixture, whisking, until thick. Bubble will begin to appear and pop on the surface-then stir and cook a few seconds longer.
    Remove from heat and whisk in butter, chocolates and vanilla.
  4. Pour into crust and chill overnight before serving with whipped cream (recipe follows)
  5. Whip the cream with a mixer, add the sugar and vanilla and whip until soft peaks form.
