I had 3 egg yolks that needed to be used up after using the whites for another recipe. I poured the filling into a graham cracker crust and topped it with whipped cream. I took it to work the following day and got rave reviews.
when it says cocoa powder is it unsweetened or sweetened? also do you have to use that brand?
Great recipe. I made this pie for Christmas dinner and the only regret was that I made only 1 chocolate pie. The pie is rich, but not overly sweet. It's quick and easy to make and will be one of my favorites.
This was so delicious! Chocolate cream pie is one of my families favorites and this did not disappoint. Thank you so much for sharing.
This is THE BEST chocolate cream pie EVER!! Not too sweet,and VERY chocolatey! So easy to make!! I could have eaten all the filling myself, it was so good. Fantastic ,cant say enough..
A great pie..So easy ..Sliced fresh Florida Strawberries over each serving,,a dollop of fresh Kahlua whipped cream and dusted it all with powdered sugar...Off the chain...
I followed the recipe to a tee and it was the best Chocolate cream pie ever and I have had hundreds. Dont know why people having problem getting it thick, no problem here. I did use Raw sugar though. <br/>Now one thing we did was made Whipped Coconut Cream and thats what took it over the edge to stardom. I will make it again and write down how to make the whipped topping and post. Thanks for the share, going to run with this and make a bunch of offshoot desserts.
This is the best chocolate pie I have ever eaten or made. DD2 a professional cook found this recipe and made for her brother when he visited from Vermont. He almost went into a Chocolate coma eating it. I sometimes make the filling and serve it in cups with whipped cream. Hey you have to choose your calories. Great recipe.
I really liked this pie. I made a crust with cinnamon graham crackers, which I REALLY liked with the chocolate. I also topped it with a peppermint whipped cream (pulverized 7oz of candy canes in the blender, added to stabilized whipped cream that I had made with 2c whipping cream). It made a DELICIOUS pie. I will agree, its not super sweet, but instead tastes more like rich chocolate instead of the candy type taste you get from a lot of chocolate cream pies. Also, mine was pretty thick instead of pudding like, which I thought was awesome. That was my holdup about making this was it wasn't going to be as firm as I wanted it, but it was perfect.
I forgot and baked the pie with the filling in it. But it was great anyway.
