Chocolate Chess Pie

This Chocolate Chess Pie is such an easy pie to makeΒ  and only a few ingredients are needed. It’s super sweet, creamy, and delicious with plenty of chocolate flavor. I usually use a store bought pie crust and then it only takes a few minutes to prep this pie. Forty-Five minutes later you have a wonderful homemade dessert to serve with supper. I like to serve it with whipped cream that’s barely been sweetened to cut the sweetness of the pie some.

If you’d like to make a homemade pie crust for this recipe watch the video below. Linda Carman, the head of the test kitchen at Martha White, shows me how to make an easy, flaky pie crust.

  1. As usual, a lot of blah blah before you can scroll to the recipe. Don’t need to hear about your life. Just want the recipe.

  2. I made this pie yesterday, added pecans and miniature chocolate chips and it was absolutely wonderful. Can’t wait to share it with my friends this week.

  3. My favorite restaurant when I lived in Alabama had a chocolate chess pie that was my favorite pie ever. But it had pecans in it. I have not found a recipe for chocolate chess pie with nuts. I wonder if it’s possible to do this but add nuts? It might be worth a try.

    1. Mary, I’ve made Chess Pie many times … don’t worry about a recipe just put a cup or 3/4 cup of Pecans in on the unbaked crust first then your 1/2 cup of chocolate chips then the “real” filling. You can do the chips separately or in the chess filling. This is my version of “derby pie” which I understand by law I cannot call it but I’m not selling it so poo … I’ll call it whatever or choc chess pie with pecans. I don’t like pecan, chess or other derby recipes that have flour in the filling. I’m a KY purist! My grann nor my momma put flour in the filling of any of the chess based pies. lol, I wish I had tried the “real derby pie” first instead of my mom’s version. I would have saved a lot of calories! Sometimes I add a little bourbon, sometimes just the vanilla.
