This diner-worthy recipe for Homemade Chocolate Cream Pie is so easy you won't believe it. Who wouldn't want to take the credit for making a sinfully rich chocolate cream pie so get going and try it.
What You'll Need:
- 1 rolled refrigerated pie crust (from a 15-ounce package)
- 2/3 cup granulated sugar
- 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
- 3 tablespoons cornstarch
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 1/4 cups cold milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 pint (1 cup) heavy whipping cream
- 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
What To Do:
Bake the pie shell according to package directions in a 9-inch deep dish pie plate; let cool.
Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, combine the granulated sugar, cocoa, cornstarch, and salt. Gradually stir in milk. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Pour into pie crust and chill 1 hour.
- In a medium bowl, with an electric mixer, combine heavy cream and confectioners' sugar and beat until stiff peaks form. Spread evenly over pie, cover loosely, and chill 8 hours or overnight before serving.
- You can substitute 2 cups whipped topping for the homemade whipped cream.
- To make this look extra special, just before serving, top with shaved chocolate or sprinkles.
- You can really look like a baking whiz by baking your own easy-as-pie No Roll Pie Crust.
