Holiday Recipes: Chocolate Chess Pie

From our family to yours… we’re sharing our favorite holiday recipes! 


  • 1 ½ cups granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup cocoa
  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 cup evaporated milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  • 4 tablespoons melted butter
  • Pie crust (I use deep dish 9 inch)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Whisk together sugar and cocoa powder

Add eggs, evaporated milk, vanilla extract, salt, and butter.  Mix well and pour into the pie crust

Bake for 45 minutes.  Let pie set and cool completely before serving.  I garnish with mini chocolate chips and whipped cream.  Christmas calories don’t count!
