  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 6 tablespoons melted butter

Chocolate Filling

  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup cornstarch
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 3 ounces unsweetened baking chocolate roughly chopped
  • 3 tablespoons chocolate chips
  • 3 large egg yolks
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Stabilized Whipped Cream

  • 3 tablespoons cold water
  • 1 teaspoon unflavored gelatin
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

How To Prepare

Graham Cracker Crust

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, stir together crushed graham crackers and sugar. Slowly add in melted butter and toss to combine. Press graham cracker mixture into the bottom and sides of a standard 9-inch pie plate.
  2. Bake in the 375 degree oven for 7 minutes. Let cool completely on a wire rack before filling.

Chocolate Pie Filling

  1. In a medium saucepan, stir together sugar and cornstarch. Add in milk, cream, chopped baking chocolate, and chocolate chips, Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until it begins to thicken.
  2. Remove from heat and quickly mix 1/3 cup of the mixture into the egg yolks in a small mixing bowl to temper the yolks. Whisk it rapidly and return it to the rest of the chocolate. Cook for an additional 90 seconds over medium heat.
  3. Remove from heat again and stir in butter and vanilla until butter is melted. Pour immediately into prepared pie crust Let cool for about 30 minutes and then refrigerate until completely cooled and set.

Stabilized Whipped Cream

  1. Make the whipped cream topping by sprinkling gelatin over cold water in a small bowl. Let stand 5 minutes. Then, microwave on high for 5-10 seconds, until gelatin melts and liquid is clear.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large mixing bowl use a hand mixer or stand mixer to whip heavy cream until soft peaks form. Sprinkle in powdered sugar and pour in vanilla extract and continue whipping until combined. Slowly pour in gelatin mixture and whip until stiff peaks form.
  3. Spread onto cooled chocolate pie. Garnish with shaved chocolate or dust with cocoa powder.

Notes

Instead of crushed graham cracker, you could also make a chocolate crust by using crushed Oreos or chocolate graham crackers.
