This easy chocolate pie is so rich and chocolaty. Serve with a dollop of homemade whipped cream on top and shaved chocolate with a side of coffee.
You know how that old saying goes easy as pie?
Well this is the pie they were talking about! It literally takes minutes to prepare, maybe a few more for those making a scratch pie crust.
Either way this chocolate pie is where it’s at!!
To Make This Easy Chocolate Pie You Will Need:
- pie dough
- unsweetened cocoa powder
- granulated sugar
- evaporated milk
Preheat your oven to 350°.
Roll your pie dough to fit a standard 8 or 9-inch pie dish. Trim of any excess dough, crimp the edges and use a fork to prick the bottom of your pie crust. Refrigerate until ready to bake.
Next, in a mixing bowl, add 3-1/2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder with 1-1/4 cups granulated sugar.
Whisk to combine.
Crack in two large eggs.
And pour in 1 (12 ounce) can evaporated milk.
Whisk to combine. You can also do all of this in a food processor for a super silky pie.
Pour the chocolate pie filling into the chilled pie crust.
Bake on the middle rack of your preheated oven for 50 minutes or until the batter sets and there’s a thin crust on top.

Wow, looks decadent! Good to know that it still tastes yummy even without the butter 🙂
This looks fabulous! I love the consistency how yours turned out. So question: what size did you end up getting if you didn’t get the called for 5 oz. evaporated milk size? I want to make mine more like yours cause I like the pudding consistency. Thanks!!
Hey Julie! I think it was the 12oz? I don’t remember because I poured and tossed it without even looking, but it’s the larger of the two. I can be such a dip sometimes!
Chocolate pie always reminds me of my great-grandmother. Love yours…and the pudding consistency 🙂 (When accidental mistakes turn out better than I expected I’m always excited!)
