Let's journey back in time and explore this beloved recipe that embodies comfort and decadence.


  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 3 cups whole milk
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 6 1/2 ounces bittersweet chocolate (finely chopped)
  • 2 Tablespoons butter (28 grams)
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 deep dish pie crust (baked and cooled)*
  • Whipped cream (optional, for topping)


  1. If you haven’t already finely chopped your chocolate, do that now. You need the chocolate, butter, and vanilla ready to add to the filling as soon as it comes off the heat later on in the recipe.
  2. To a medium saucepan, add the sugar, cornstarch, and salt. Mix together.
  3. Pour in the milk and add the egg yolks. Whisk until fully combined.
  4. Turn the heat to medium and stir constantly until it just starts to bubble (about 6-8 minutes). As soon as you see the mixture start to bubble and it has reached a pudding consistency, remove it from the heat.
  5. Immediately add the chopped chocolate, butter, and vanilla. Stir until the chocolate is fully melted and the mixture is fully combined.
  6. Pour the filling into the prebaked pie crust. Spread the filling out evenly and place it into the fridge uncovered to chill for at least 4 hours.
  7. Once the pie has set, cut it into slices and serve with whipped cream.

This Old-Fashioned Chocolate Pie recipe captures the essence of comforting desserts from yesteryears—a silky, chocolate-filled treat encased in a flaky crust that's bound to evoke memories of homemade goodness and simple pleasures.
