Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C).

Crust:

  1. Melt butter in a medium saucepan set over medium-low heat.
  2. Remove from heat; stir in crumbs. Turn into a 9-inch (23 cm) shallow glass pie plate. Press evenly up sides and on bottom of pie plate.
  3. Bake for 8 min in centre of preheated oven until set.

Filling:

  1. In a medium saucepan, whisk cocoa with sugar, cornstarch and salt. Whisk in egg as best as you can; add milk. Continue to whisk until smooth and no lumps remain.
  2. Set over medium heat. Stirring continuously, bring to a boil, about 3 to 5 min. Filling will thicken and bubble.
  3. Reduce heat to low; simmer gently and stir for 1 min. Add chocolate and butter. Stir until melted. Stir in vanilla.
  4. Turn into slightly cooled pie shell. Refrigerate for 2 hours or until cold and set.

Topping:

  1. Beat cream with sugar and vanilla until stiff peaks form. Spoon onto chilled pie. Swirl.
  2. Grate chocolate over top if using. Refrigerate until ready to eat. Best eaten within a day of making.

Notes

If you don’t want a “skin” to form on the chocolate filling, press a piece of plastic wrap directly on surface of filling while it chills

For a fancier version of this pie, use a 9-inch (23 cm) tart shell. Garnish with gooseberries, cherries and chocolate curls.
