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.

Such a classic!

Can you Double this recipe?

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