Easy Chocolate Pie Recipe
  • 1 pie crust, baked according to directions (buy frozen refrigerated or make your own pie crust)
  • ½ cup Hershey's Dark Cocoa Powder (or use regular cocoa powder)
  • 1¼ cup sugar (a little less if you are using regular cocoa powder)
  • ⅓ cup cornstarch
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 cups milk
  • 3 Tbsp butter
  • 1½ tsp pure vanilla extract
  1. In a medium saucepan, mix together cocoa powder, sugar, cornstarch, salt and milk. Whisk until smooth.
  2. Cook over Medium-High Heat, stirring often until milk starts to heat. Once the milk starts to warm, stir constantly, making sure to scrape sides and bottom of pan.
  3. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly
  4. Let mixture actively boil for 1 minute, continuing to stir.
  5. Remove from heat and stir in butter and vanilla. Whisk to blend
  6. Pour in to cooled and baked 9" pie crust
  7. Cover with plastic wrap, making sure that entire surface of the filling is covered (this will prevent the filling developing a "skin" as it cools)
  8. Chill in the refrigerator 4 - 6 hours or until firm.
  9. Top with whipped cream and chocolate shavings or mini chocolate chips
