Ingredients:

Graham Cracker Crust:

  • 6 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar

Chocolate Pie Filling:

  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 cup bittersweet chocolate chips
  • 3 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
  • 4 egg yolks, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons powdered sugar

Topping:

  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 3 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 2 ounces chocolate for shavings

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Spray a 9-inch pie plate with nonstick baking spray.
  2. For the Graham Cracker Crust: Combine melted butter, graham cracker crumbs, and 2 tablespoons of sugar. Press into the prepared pie plate and bake for 7-8 minutes.
  3. In a large 2.5-quart saucepan, whisk together sugar, cornstarch, and salt. Add milk, 1 cup of cream, chocolate chips, and chopped chocolate. Place over medium-low heat and bring to a low boil, whisking constantly. Boil for 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from heat.
  4. Whisk about 1/2 cup of the hot mixture into the beaten egg yolks, a few tablespoons at a time. Slowly whisk the warmed egg mixture into the pie filling. Bring it back to a low boil for 1-2 minutes, whisking constantly. Remove from heat, whisk in the vanilla extract, and pour into the graham cracker crust. Cover with plastic wrap directly on the filling to prevent a skin from forming. Refrigerate overnight or for up to 24 hours.
  5. Before serving, beat 1 cup whipping cream and 3 tablespoons powdered sugar until stiff peaks form. Spread or pipe onto the pie. Garnish with mini chocolate shavings using a vegetable peeler.
