  • 1 9-inch unbaked pie crust, store-bought or homemade
  • 1  cup (200g) granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup (29.5g) unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ¼ cup (½ stick, 57g) unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 can (5 ounces or ⅔ cup) evaporated milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • confectioners' sugar, for dusting
  • whipped topping, for garnish


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • On a lightly floured surface, roll pie crust out into a 12-inch circle. Carefully transfer the crust to a 9-inch pie plate. Cinch the edge of your pie crust to create your desired shape.
  • In a large bowl, add sugar and cocoa. Whisk together until combined.
  • Add butter, eggs, evaporated milk, and vanilla. Continue to mix until well combined.
  • Pour the filling into the prepared pie crust. Bake for 45-50 minutes, or until mostly set (some jiggle is okay). Turn off the oven, crack open the oven door, and leave the pie in the oven as it cools for 20-30 minutes. During this time, the top of the pie will gently fall/sink back down.
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool completely.
  • Dust with confectioners' sugar or garnish with whipped topping.
