This Ultimate Double Chocolate Pie Recipe is like fudge in an Oreo shell – super chocolaty, rich, decadent, and SO yummy. Unapologetically addicting.

I decided to bring this old Chocolate Pie Recipe back from the dark ages of my blog, reshoot it with step-by-step photos and share it with you BECAUSE this is the pie I made for my husband when I was crushing on him hardback in our college days. This is the very first thing I made for him that he tried and lemmetellyou, that was a good decision. At that very early stage in our relationship, I didn’t know how much of a chocoholic he was, but I’m almost positive it sealed my fate as his wife. Now, years later, we still are very much in love with each other…and this pie.

Chocolate Pie Recipe

I truly wish I came up with this pie on my own, but it’s a recipe that my Mom’s friend found in an old Homemaker’s magazine. It uses lots of common ingredients and comes together relatively quickly. You will need to let this set on the counter and then in the fridge, but once the waiting is over, you will be shocked at how good it is. Do not be deceived by the simple look that this pie has. You will have monumental results if used in the correct fashion. It worked wonders for me! So, here is my beloved pie recipe. Find someone you love to enjoy this with!

  • Oreo Crumbs and Melted Butter – you can always buy oreo cookie crumbs if you don’t want to make them yourself or just buy the store-bought crust, though homemade tastes 2 million times better. Just sayin’.
  • Egg Yolks – your pie will NOT set if you do not thicken the cream and egg mixture long enough. If you are unsure whether or not the mixture is thick enough, continue cooking for another 5 minutes ensuring the water in your double boiler is at a simmer. This should continue to thicken the mixture. (Even if your pie doesn’t set, it’s still ridiculously delicious!)
  • Heavy Cream – this helps create a silky smooth texture.
  • Granulated Sugar – to sweeten even more.
  • Salt – to balance out the sweet taste.
  • Vanilla Extract – for flavor.
  • Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips –  we use almost an entire full package here, so plan accordingly.
  • Whipped Cream – either get some store-bought kind or make Homemade Whipped Cream.

Leftovers

This Chocolate Pie Recipe is perfect for leftovers because it is best served cold! Which also means, it’s the perfect make-ahead recipe too!!! When saving for later, make sure to cover with plastic wrap to avoid the filling from drying out. By doing this, the pie should stay good for up to four days in your refrigerator.

    I used to make this pie all the time back in the day before Pinterest. I had written the recipe down on paper and kept it in a cook book. Who remembers those? Well somewhere along the way, it was misplaced. I’m so happy to have found your recipe through Pinterest.
    I’m making it for Pie Night tomorrow.

    I have wanted to make this pie since you first posted the recipe. Every time I planned for it, somebody didn’t want a chocolate dessert (I know….they’re crazy!!) Well this Valentines Day, I’m making this pie just for me!! Of course I’ll share it, (if they’re nice to me) LOL!! I love your recipes and following the Brennan’s.!! Your kids are precious!! I had hoped to meet you when you lived in Oregon because I visit family there. Oh well, NYC has lots to offer too.

    This is a wonderful pie for Chocolate lovers. The only thing I did differently was add the remaining chocolate chips to the pie as it was setting in the fridge. Thanks for the recipe!
