Description

Baby, let me tell you. This is one chocolate experience you’re not likely to forget.

Ingredients

  • 4 ounces, weight Unsweetened Baking Chocolate
  • 1 cup Salted Butter, Softened
  • 1-½ cup Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 4 whole Eggs
  • 1 package Baked Pie Shell

Preparation

In small microwave safe bowl melt 4 ounces of unsweetened baking chocolate until stirrable (about 45 seconds on high). Set aside to cool.

In a large bowl with an electric mixer beat 1 cup (2 sticks) of regular (salted) butter and 1 ½ cups of white sugar until fluffy (about 1 to 2 minutes). When melted chocolate is cooled, drizzle it over the butter/sugar mixture. Add 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract. Beat the mixture thoroughly until combined (on a Kitchen Aid mixer, you will be using the whisk attachment).

Turn your mixer to a medium speed and over a period of 15 to 20 minutes add in the four eggs, one at a time, leaving about 5 minutes between each egg addition. Once the pie filling is well mixed, pour it into the baked pie shell, scraping every last speck of it out of the bowl. Smooth out the pie filling and place pie in the refrigerator to chill for at least two hours (preferably longer).

Plop a heap of whipped cream and garnish with a few chocolate curls if you’re feeling sassy.

My daughter wanted chocolate pie for her 17th birthday and this is the one we tried. Oh MY! We all thought this was fantastic and even better the second day.

I’ve made this pie twice in the last week! I put my own twist on it and added slightly less than a shot of espresso to the mixture. It’s a very rich pie – cut small pieces and use lots of whipped cream.

The second time I made it I nixed the pie crust, divided the mixture between 6 martini glasses, garnished it with a strawberry and whipped cream and called it “mocha mousse”. My girlfriends loved it and I am a hero! Heroine? Really popular with my friends now?

Chocolate pie worth every bit of extra effort and time it takes to make. I made this for a United Way fundraiser and it was gone in seconds, and everyone wanted the recipe. Thanks, Ree!

This is my favorite chocolate pie in the whole world, including Africa. I don’t know if they have chocolate pie in Africa, but it’s a long way from where I am. So that’s how much I love this chocolate pie. My husband requests it frequently.

DELICIOUS. Definitely one of those desserts that is dangerous for me to have in my fridge. I usually have a little extra that won’t fit in my pie crust. I may or may not be guilty of eating it straight out of the tupperware with a spoon. Just sayin’.

I made this for Thanksgiving. Everyone told me it was the best chocolate pie they have ever had. It is very rich – perfect in small bites.

Very rich, very delicious. This is the pie to make if you need to win over an enemy or get a man to profess his love for you. An absolute favorite!!

This is a fabulous recipe! I’ve made it and called it chocolate mousse. I put Bailey’s in it on St. Patty’s Day and called Bailey’s Chocolate Mousse. It’s very dark-chocolatey rich. Perfect with wine. Or Irish whiskey. Just sayin’.
