Kim D’s Old Fashioned Chocolate Pie

I first had this delicious recipe when a friend dropped it off after my son was born nearly 18  years ago. I’ve made it so many times, my family and friends now refer to it as my Chocolate Pie. It is really my old friend, Kim D’s Grandmother’s. I appreciate that she shared the pie and recipe with me. This is super simple to make, and I think Kim’s Grandmother would get a kick out of the fact that her recipe is on the Internet.

Kim D’s Old Fashioned Chocolate Pie

1 pastry shell, unbaked( I generally use store-bought, feel free to use a homemade one)

2 eggs, beaten

3 1/2 Tablespoon cocoa

1 1/2 cups white sugar

1 small can evaporated milk( can substitute cream)

1/4 cup butter, melted

1/8 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon REAL vanilla

1/2 cup chopped pecans

whipped cream( not Cool Whip)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Beat eggs and add cocoa, sugar, vanilla, milk, butter, and salt. Mix well. Stir in nuts. Pour into shell. Bake for 45 minutes.

Cool on wire racks,then chill. Serve with whipped cream.

    Yum, this sounds delicious! I’d have to pick out the pecans (can’t eat ‘em), but I do that to pecan pie and it’s still wonderful, so no reason to believe Chocolate Pie wouldn’t be delightful, too. Thanks!

      Deb, I’ve actually made this without nuts and it is just a delicious. The chocolate is the important part!

    I love chocolate pie…chocolate cake, chocolate candy, chocolate covered bacon (even though I haven’t tried it I’m pretty sure I’d love it).

    Will definitely add this to my recipe book!

    Thanks for sharing ?
