What is Yoder’s Amish Chocolate Pie?
This Amish Chocolate Pie is a classic recipe that has been handed down for generations. When I visited the gal who shared her recipe with me, she mentioned that she used real butter (as in, she made it herself), real chocolate, and of course homemade pie crust. (Here is a great recipe for the perfect pie crust that I use in my WORLD’S BEST PECAN PIE RECIPE.)
Each slice is satisfying without being overly rich. We love topping it with gobs of whipped cream and sprinkling with chocolate shavings.

Yoder’s Amish Chocolate Pie
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 2 ½ tablespoons all purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
- 1 ½ cups milk
- 2 egg yolks
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 3 tablespoons butter, melted
- 1 10-inch baked pie crust
- Whipped cream

- In a large saucepan, whisk together the granulated sugar, flour, and cocoa. Make sure the saucepan is off the heat.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the milk, egg yolks, and vanilla. Pour this mixture into the saucepan.
- Turn the heat to medium and stir in the butter. Keep stirring until the mixture comes to a rolling boil.
- Let it boil for 1 minute, continuing to stir, until the mixture thickens.
