Classic Chocolate Cream Pie Recipe


  • 1. Prepare the pie crust according to package directions (if necessary); cool completely.
  • 2. Stir the sugar with the cornstarch and salt in a medium saucepan; whisk in the milk. Set over medium heat; cook, stirring, until the mixture becomes extremely thick. Whisk some of the hot milk mixture with the egg yolks. Whisk the egg mixture back into the hot milk mixture.
  • 3. Cook, whisking constantly, for 1 minute or until smooth and well combined; remove from the heat. Place the chocolate chips, butter and vanilla in a bowl. Pour the hot pudding mixture over the chocolate and whisk until smooth and well combined.
  • 4. Pour the filling into the prepared crust; smooth the top. Press a piece of plastic wrap directly onto the surface of the pie. Chill until completely set (about 4 to 6 hours). Garnish with whipped cream (if using).
  • Makes 8 to 10 servings.
