This pie is all you need to satisfy those cravings…buttery, crunchy crust with the smoothest filling is simply to die for! I love it as is but you can serve it with berries and whipped cream…yes!!!

  • 180 gr bittersweet chocolate
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

Method:

For the crust:

  • Spray a 22cm pie dish with cooking spray.
  • In a saucepan add the butter and chopped chocolate and place on low heat. Stir till both butter and chocolate melt.
  • In a food processor grind the cookies.
  • Add melted chocolate to cookies and pulse till well incorporated.
  • Press crumb mix in pie dish and place in freezer for an hour.

For the filling:

  • In a saucepan (off the heat) add sugar, cornstarch, cocoa and salt. Whisk to combine.
  • Still off heat add yolks and whisk till you have a smooth paste.
  • Add whipping cream and milk and place on medium heat and cook whisking till thickened.
  • Take the pan off the heat and add the chopped chocolate and vanilla.
