Sometimes, I like to turn the TV on the Food Network while I cook and pretend I’m a celebrity chef…today I’m Paula Deen whipping up a Southern classic – Chocolate Chess Pie. It’s sweet, decadent and oh so chocolaty. It’s also very simple to make.
- 1 and ½ cup sugar
- 3 and ½ Tablespoon cocoa
- 4 ounce evaporated milk
- 2 eggs, room temp and slightly beaten
- ½ cup butter, melted (I don't recommend using margarine)
- 1 teaspoono vanilla
- 1 refrigerated pie crust, you can use a homemade pie crust as well.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Form pie crust in a 9 inch pie pan, set aside. With a whisk, mix sugar, cocoa, eggs, butter and vanilla together until well combined. Whisk in milk. Pour into unbaked pie crust. Bake in 350 degree oven 45 minutes until center of pie is set. Cool to room temperature. Serve at room temp or chilled in refrigerator. Take it over the top with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream!
