classic southern chocolate chess pie recipe

I’m certain that all of our southern followers will recognize this classic southern Chocolate Chess Pie recipe. I’ve made it a couple of times for dinner parties since moving to the UK and it’s always been a big hit. Everyone seems to love the crust it makes on the top and of course all the chocolatey goodness! And you know me…the best part is how easy it is to make!


  • 1¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 3 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 4 tbsp butter, melted and cooled
  • 5 oz evaporated milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 (9 inch) unbaked pie crust (recipe in earlier blog post)


Preheat oven 350f (177c). Whisk sugar, cocoa, and salt together. Add melted butter and evaporated milk and beat on high speed. Add vanilla and eggs. Continue mixing on high speed for 2-3 minutes. Pour into a 9 inch unbaked pie shell (recipe in earlier post) and bake for 35-40 minutes. The center of the pie will be a bit soft. Cool on a wire rack for at least an hour before slicing. Keep in refrigerator after completely cooled and serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
