Grandmas’s chocolate pie is a luscious dessert on a flaky crust. This is my favorite dessert since I was little. And I can say the same with my kids. They love this chocolate pie as much as I love it.
To make this chocolate pie, all this requires are simple, easy-to-find ingredients. The flaky, almost salty crust is filled with decadent chocolate custard topped with springy meringue.
Easily whip up this chocolate pie in minutes. I like this pie chilled so I keep this in the fridge until chilled before serving. If you have any leftover pie, cover it with plastic wrap and store it in the fridge. This is a simple, decadent dessert that everyone will absolutely love!
¼ c. cornstarch
½ c. cocoa
1 ½ c. sugar

How to Make Grandma’s Chocolate Pie
Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 350 degrees F.
Step 2: Combine the cocoa, sugar, cornstarch, salt, and egg yolks in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Slowly add in the milk, stirring constantly for about 5 to 10 minutes until the mixture bubbles and thickened. Beat out the lumps if the mixture becomes lumpy.
Step 3: Cook the mixture until thick, constantly beating until smooth. Then, pour the mixture into a pre-baked pie shell.
Step 4: Place in the fridge to chill before serving.
Step 5: Slice and serve chilled. Enjoy!
We just brown the meringue in the oven so ensure to keep the custard cooking in the pan until smooth.
To make the meringue, beat the egg whites and salt until fluffy. Then, add the sugar. Into the baked pie shell, pour the chocolate custard and top with the beaten egg whites. Bake for about 10 minutes until the peaks of the meringue are lightly browned.
