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.

How to Make Chocolate Pie

Start by baking your pie crust. If you are opting to use store-bought, it will still need to be baked prior to adding the chocolate filling.

all-purpose flour
egg yolks
whipped cream
chocolate shavings – optional

Next, you are going to get out a medium saucepan and add the sugar, flour, and cocoa powder. Simmer over low heat until ingredients are warmed through and incorporated. (about 1 minute)

In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk, egg yolks, and vanilla. While whisking (you don’t want to cook the eggs!) slowly add the egg mixture to the sugar mixture. Now you can turn the heat up to medium and add in the butter.

Pour into the prepared pie crust and then place in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.

Top with whipped cream and chocolate shavings.

Can you Double this recipe?

Yes, you can absolutely double the filling ingredients to create a thicker chocolate pie.
