This is the easiest and best homemade chocolate pie ever! It is deliciously rich and creamy, and let me tell you, in our family it doesn't last very long!
Someone ^^^ is waiting patiently for her piece of pie... Sorry dear but it's not gonna happen ;) Also say hello to our garage, because yes that is where I take most of these food pictures #lightingiseverything.
Chocolate Pie is a staple in our family for Thanksgiving and Christmas. And it is soon to be a favorite in your family too after you taste this! Enjoy!
2 cups milk, heated
4 egg yolks
4 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
4 Tablespoons flour
2 cups sugar
2 teaspoons butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1, 9 inch baked Pie Shell
1) In a medium-sized sauce pan on medium heat, add heated milk (I do this in a glass measuring cup in the microwave, it should be hot to the touch). Add egg yolks and using a whisk, stir constantly.
2) Add cocoa powder, flour, and sugar, whisking constantly. Cook until thick (about 10 minutes).
3) Add butter and vanilla and cook for an additional 2 minutes. Cool slightly and then pour into prepared pie shell.
4) Refrigerate for about 3 hours until firm (optional).
