Sunday, January 4, 2015

Hello friends! I hope your Sunday night is going well. :) So before we jump into a new season of Downton Abbey, ( yep! You heard me right! Tonight is the premiere for season 5 and I am so excited! ) I would share this recipe with you. This chocolate pie is a delicious recipe that doesn't require a ton of ingredients, skill, or even baking. Everything you need to know is in the video and the full recipe is below! 

Chocolate Pudding Pie

Makes one 9-inch pie (8 servings)

1 Chocolate Cookie Crust

2 1/2 cups whole milk
5 oz chopped semi sweet chocolate or chocolate chips. 
4 Large egg yolks
3/4 cup sugar
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon salt 
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract 

2 cups heavy cream
2 Tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract. 

Garnish; Chocolate Curls

For the Filling: In a heavy saucepan over medium-high heat, warm the milk and chocolate. Whisk them occasionally until the chocolate is melted.

In a large bowl, combine the egg yolks and sugar, whisking them until pale yellow. Add cornstarch, salt and vanilla.

Slowly pour the warm chocolate mixture into the egg mixture, whisking them well.

Return the mixture to the saucepan, and cook over medium heat until it thickens and begins to bubble slowly, about 7 minutes. Remove the saucepan from the heat, and stir the mixture until it’s smooth, about 1 minute.

Pour the chocolate filling into the cookie crust, and smooth it with a spatula. Cover it with plastic wrap, pressing it directly onto the surface, and refrigerate it for 2 hours.

For the Chocolate Curls: Microwave a medium-size chunk of chocolate on low for about 5 seconds. Using a vegetable peeler, slowly and evenly scrape the edge of the chunk until curls form. (If it’s too cold, the peeler will make ragged shavings instead of curls, so repeat warming the chocolate as necessary.) Refrigerate the curls until ready to use.

For the Topping: Using an electric mixer fitted with a whisk (whip) attachment, beat the cream, sugar and vanilla on medium-high until stiff peaks form.

Spoon the whipped cream onto the pie, and use a spatula to spread it evenly, being careful not to disturb the chocolate pudding underneath.

Decorate with chocolate curls.

Refrigerate the pie until ready to serve, but let it sit at room temperature for 20 minutes before serving.
