    Straight from grandma’s kitchen, Yoder’s Amish Chocolate Pie is smooth, silky, and practically melts in your mouth.

    Such a classic!

    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 c granulated sugar
        • 2 1/2 tbsp. all purpose flour
        • 2 tbsp. cocoa
        • 2 egg yolks
        • 1 tsp. vanilla
        • 3 tbsp. butter, melted

        • 1 1/2 c milk
        • Whipped cream
        • Chocolate shavings


        1. In a large saucepan, whisk together the granulated sugar, flour, and cocoa.
        2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the milk, yolks, and vanilla. Pour into the sauce pan.
        3. Turn the heat to medium and stir in the butter. Heat to rolling boil for 1 minute until thickened.
        4. Pour into the baked pie crust and smooth the top. (Or tap the pie on the counter to help settle) Let cool at room temperature for 2 hours and chill in the refrigerator for an additional 2 hours.
        5. Top with whipped cream and chocolate shavings.

        Such a classic!

        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.)

        Accidentally left out for around 7 hours rather than 2. Is it still ok to eat? Have now put in the refrigerator.
