This is a very delicious chocolate pie that comes in handy for gatherings or parties, it takes some time but it’s worth to try it.

Preparation Time: 30 mins

Cook:  40 mins + chilling

Servings: 8


  • 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4  teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup shortening
  • 3 to 4 tablespoon ice water
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1-½ ounces unsweetened chocolate, melted and cooled
  • 2 tablespoons 2% milk
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup butter, melted


Step 1.

Combine flour and salt; cut in butter and shortening until crumbly. Gradually add ice water, tossing with a fork until dough holds together when pressed. Shape dough into a disk. Wrap and refrigerate 1 hour or overnight.

Step 2.

On a floured surface, roll dough to fit a 9-in. pie plate. Trim and flute edge. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. Preheat the oven to 425°. Line unpricked crust with a double thickness of foil. Fill with pie weights. Bake on a lower oven rack until light golden brown, 15-20 minutes. Remove foil and weights; bake until bottom is golden brown, 3-6 minutes. Cool on a wire rack. Reduce oven setting to 325°.

Step 3.

In a large bowl, whisk eggs, sugars, melted chocolate, milk, flour and vanilla. Gradually whisk in butter. Pour into the crust. Cover the edge with foil to prevent overbrowning.

Step 4.

Bake at 325° until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, 35-40 minutes. Remove foil. Cool on a wire rack. Refrigerate, covered, for 3 hours or until chilled.
