Jennifer's Signature Chocolate Cream Pie {Jennifer's Recipe}

When I was growing up, Chocolate Cream Pies were made for nearly every get-together. When it comes to making a delicious chocolate cream pie today, my daughter, Jennifer is the one everyone wants to make it.

Chocolate cream pie has been one of my favorites for as long as I can remember.   Pies can be fun to make such an accomplishment when finished.  This pie is simple to make with little fuss.

First, start off with the crust.  We use a homemade pie crust, but a shortbread cookie crust is equally as easy.  And store bought will do just fine too.  Second, for the filling, I add all the ingredients in a microwave safe bowl except the butter and vanilla and microwave for 6-8 minutes stirring every 2 minutes.

Did I say this pie is quick and easy to make?

I love that this pie has a rich and intense chocolate taste and to balance out that it is topped with sweetened whipped cream.

Printable Recipe
  • 1 9" pie crust, baked and cooled 
  • 3 large eggs yolks 
  • 1 1/2 cups whole milk 
  • 1 cup sugar 2 tablespoons flour 
  • 2 tablespoons corn starch
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
Mix egg yolks and milk with wire whisk until blended. Mix dry ingredients and add to milk-egg mixture. Cook in microwave on Full Power 6-8 minutes stirring well at 2-minute intervals until thickened. Add butter and vanilla stirring well. Pour pie filling immediately in baked pie crust. Cool to room temperature and refrigerate 1 hour before topping with sweetened whipped cream.

Sweetened Whipped Cream
    2 cups cold heavy cream
    1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
Whip cream on medium-high speed using a hand-held or stand mixer until almost stiff. Add confectioners' sugar and vanilla and whip until stiff.

Note:  Depending on how chocolaty you like your pie, I use heaping tablespoons of cocoa.  My daughter doesn't put the vanilla in her whipped cream for this recipe.

    1. So glad you stopped by to let me know how you enjoyed the pie...I make it with a meringue too...either way it is a family pleaser!

  4. This sounds so good. I think I will make this on the stove. Have you ever made it that way? I have never really cooked anything in the microwave only to reheat already cooked food. Thanks for a yummy recipe.
