Angela's Chocolate Cream Pie

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by AngelaTN

Whenever I prepare dinner for a friend (new baby, death in family, etc.), I always include this yummy pie, along with a carton of Cool Whip. It's the perfect ending to any meal. (Prep time does not include chilling).

Sorry to say, I was not impressed with this pie filling. I had expected something rich and chocolatey, but instead, the bland flavor left me disappointed and wishing I had doubled the cocoa or stirred in some bittersweet chocolate at the end. For those of you who don't make a stirred custard very often, just keep the heat to medium to medium-high, and mix the finished treat in your stand mixer for a few minutes to cool it down...this is the best time to add the butter and vanilla. Anyway, I found the chocolate flavor sorely lacking, so will not make again. Sorry.
