Best Ever Chocolate Cream Pie

This Chocolate Cream Pie is the BEST I have tried! Silky smooth and ultra creamy chocolate cream filling made with two types of chocolate for a rich flavor!


For maximum richness and chocolate flavor, I recommend splurging for the good stuff! For cocoa powder, I recommend looking for an unsweetened cocoa powder with at least 1g of fat. This imparts extra flavor! As for the chocolate bar, I used Ghirardelli 60% bittersweet chocolate.


This Old Fashioned Chocolate Cream Pie is made with pure rich cocoa powder and it’s silky smooth and easier to make than you might think. The filling is poured into a homemade pie crust, just like your grandma made.


Add the whipping cream to a large mixing bowl. Using the whisk attachment, (or use a hand mixer), whisk the cream on medium speed until it’s just starting to slightly thicken. Add the sugar and vanilla and whisk on high speed until the whipping cream forms soft to medium peaks. Serve immediately or refrigerate for up to 2 days.


The process of cooking the filling and whisking half of it into the egg yolks before returning it to the pan is called tempering . If you add the egg yolks directly into the pan of the hot mixture, the heat will cook the eggs and you will have bits of cooked egg in your pie filling.


A crowd favorite, this cocoa cream pie is made with cocoa powder, whipped cream, and strawberries.

That creamy chocolate filling

While the crust bakes, make the filling. I wanted my filling to be extremely, extremely creamy and I wanted there to be a lot of it. It’s your basic chocolate custard but made with slightly less eggs and a splash of hazelnut liquor, for a richer chocolate flavor.
