Easy As Pie: Treat Yourself to a Chocolate Chess Pie


Chess pie is a classic southern dessert that combines the delicious flaky crust of a pie with a gooey texture of a custard. Add in some chocolate, and you have a nearly-perfect dessert to whip up for your sweetie (or your friends). This is my very favorite kind of pie, and as an added bonus, it’s super easy to make!

Chocolate Chess Pie

1 1/2 cups white sugar
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
2 eggs
1 (5 oz.) can evaporated milk
1/4 cup melted butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 9-inch unbaked pie crust

Step 1:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Mix sugar and cocoa together.

Step 2:

Pour the mixture into the 9-inch unbaked pie shell and bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 45 minutes (or 60 minutes if you’re using a frozen crust), or until set. Let cool before slicing.
