For the crust:

  • 1 1/4 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 6 tbsp unsalted butter, melted

For the filling:
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 4 large egg yolks
  • 8 oz semi-sweet chocolate, finely chopped
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

For the topping (optional):
  • Whipped cream
  • Chocolate shavings or curls
  1. Let's start with the crust. In a bowl, mix together the graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and melted butter until it resembles coarse crumbs. Press the mixture into a 9-inch pie dish, going up the sides as well. Bake at 350°F for 8-10 minutes, then let it cool completely.
  2. Now for the silky filling! In a saucepan, whisk together the milk, cream, sugar, cornstarch, salt, and egg yolks until well combined.
  3. Cook the mixture over medium heat, whisking constantly, until it starts to thicken and bubble slightly. This should take about 5-7 minutes.
  4. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the chopped chocolate and vanilla extract until the chocolate is fully melted and the mixture is smooth and glossy.
  5. Pour the chocolate filling into the cooled pie crust and smooth out the top with a spatula or the back of a spoon.
  6. Cover the surface directly with plastic wrap to prevent a skin from forming, and refrigerate the pie for at least 4 hours (or overnight if you can wait that long).
  7. Once the pie is chilled and set, you can top it with whipped cream and chocolate shavings or curls if you're feeling fancy.
