This recipe seems to be no-fail, our family has been making it for a very long time and it always turns out perfect, rich and chocolaty good. My husband made the pie above and used a ready made crust. 


  • 2- 9″ baked pie shell
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/2 cups milk
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 3 1 oz. squares unsweetened chocolate
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tea vanilla


  1. In medium saucepan combine sugar, flour, cornstarch, and salt.
  2. In a bowl beat milk, egg yolks until smooth. Gradually stir into sugar mixture.
  3. Stir constantly over medium heat until mixture comes to a full boil, boil one minute.
  4. Remove from heat, add chocolate, butter and vanilla; stir thoroughly.
  5. Pour into baked pie shells.
  6. Cover pies with plastic wrap to prevent film forming. Refrigerate for 3 hours.

The chocolate filling can be also be served as a pudding.
