    12 Graham Cracker Squares (crushed; Honey Graham or Chocolate)
    1/4 cup Sugar
    6-8 tablespoons Melted Butter

  • 2
    Will yield a thick pic crust for a standard pie plate and a thin crust for a deep dish pie crust.
  • 3
    1 pint Heavy Whipping Cream
    2 teaspoons Sugar
    2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
    Whipped Cream: Place Cream, Sugar and Vanilla Extract into mixing bowl. Whip to stiff peaks.
  • 4
    2 cups Whole Milk
    1/2 cup Flour
    4 tablespoons Sugar
    3 teaspoons Cornstarch
    4 Eggs (beaten)
    4 tablespoons Unsalted Butter
    7 ounces High quality Semisweet Chocolate (grated) (kitchen Ghirardelli Chocolate please)
    4 teaspoons White Rum or Brandy
    Confectioners’ Sugar
    Fresh Mint (to garnish)
    Chocolate Pie: Heat Milk on low heat.  Beat Eggs in a separate bow then sift in the Sugar, Flour, and Cornstarch.  Temper the Milk with a bit of the Egg mixture, and then incorporate completely.  Return this mixture to the pan and cook over low heat, stirring with a whisk continuously until mixture thickens just below boiling (pudding consistency).  Remove from heat and stir in Butter, Chocolate and Brandy/Rum until smooth.  Let cool slightly and spoon filling into pie crust.  Sprinkle with Confectioners’ Sugar to prevent skin from forming.  Chill.  Spoon homemade Whipped Cream over Chocolate filling.  Dust with grated Chocolate.  Add a sprig of Mint.

    Helpful Tips:
    1. You can double the recipe for a deep-dish pie.
    2. Pouring the milk on the side of a cool bowl, while whisking, helps to cools the temperature even more.
    3. Adding confectioners sugar on top of the pie reduces the risk of skin forming on the top between the crust and homemade whipped cream.
