Chocolate Chess Pie
Chocolate Chess Pie is the most irresistible pie ever! I LOVE this pie. Think of a chocolate fudge type pie. This pie is so easy to make to. It uses only a handful of ingredients. It makes up rich and gooey like.
The secret is to make sure you cook it long enough. The gal who gave me this recipe said bake 40 minutes. 🙁 Not in my oven. The pie was no where near being “set” at that point. I had to bake it an hour and ten minutes before it was done.
The outcome? Spectacular. This gooey delight of a pie is so rich, so decadent and so heavenly. No kidding. It’s wonderful served plain but ice cream should never be refused. 🙂
My husband and I work with the college/career young adults in our church. There are about 20-25 that come on a rotating basis depending on classes, work schedules etc. We had a progressive dinner and old-fashioned “lock-in” for them back in early May. The house we went to for desserts had two of these pies, plus a host of other desserts. I think I had two pieces. It was that good.
I found out from the hostess who made the pies for. I begged that gal the next Sunday in church for the recipe. She knows I have a food blog and she was thrilled that I would put one of her recipes on my blog.
I made a couple of these pies for the college group in June as well. I actually froze them and then pulled each one out of the freezer when I wanted to. I served one to the young adult group and the other for our Friday night care group. Yes, these pies will always be devoured down to the last crumb.
Chocolate Chess Pie is outstanding. If you want to impress your family, make this easy and delicious pie the next time you want a chocolate dessert. I recommend this pie for holidays too. Valentine’s Day, Christmas or Thanksgiving, special occasions or any time you need a chocolate fix, Chocolate Chess Pie should be on the menu. 🙂
Chocolate Chess Pie is irresistible.
This pie is rich, gooey, decadent and heavenly.
This is a wonderful dessert for company, holidays, special occasions or whenever you want something chocolaty.
Here’s what I did.
I used these ingredients.
Fit pie crust into a deep dish pie plate.
Place sugar in a mixing bowl. Add cocoa, eggs and vanilla.
Add softened butter and evaporated milk.
Whisk, or use an electric mixer to blend thoroughly.
Pour chocolate filling into pie crust.
It may look like there’s not enough filling. But the filling expands while baking and then collapses slightly when it cools. There’s plenty of filling. Trust me.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes. (I was baking two pies at once. My oven took 1 hour 10 minutes to bake these pies completely).
Serve Chocolate Chess Pie, hot or cold, with whipped cream, ice cream or plain.
The chocolaty, fudgy filling is awesome.
Chocolate Chess Pie is perfect for a company dessert.
