This easy recipe for chocolate chess pie is basically a creamy slice of fudge in a piecrust.  The dessert of your chocolate dreams!


  • 1 unbaked pie crust
  • 1 ½ cups sugar
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 five ounce can evaporated milk
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled a little
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • Confectioner’s sugar (optional, for garnish)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 and spray a nine inch pie plate with cooking spray.
  2. Line the pie plate with the pie crust.
  3. Put all ingredients except for the confectioner’s sugar in a mixing bowl and mix with an electric mixer until totally combined. Pour into the pie crust.
  4. Bake for 45 minutes or until the filling is firm along the sides (it might still be a little wiggly in the middle – that’s okay!)
  5. Cool until just warm (and this pie is also awesome chilled, by the way). Right before you serve it, you can fancy it up by shaking on some confectioner’s sugar if you want.  I do this by putting about ¼ or so in a fine mesh strainer and tapping the side of it so it showers down on the pie.
  6. Serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
