Helen's Chocolate Pie

I almost finished that t-shirt tutorial this weekend, but then I got distracted by High School Musical 3. Did you know that I am 12 years old?

So while you wait, I'm offering the recipe to Helen's Chocolate Pie. It is exceptionally delicious, and I made it for Jared this weekend in celebration of his completing the CA Bar Exam. What a trooper.

Helen's Chocolate Pie

  • 1 1/2 C. sugar
  • 3 Tbsp. cornstarch
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 C. cocoa powder
  • 3 C. milk
  • 3 egg yolks, slightly beaten
  • 1 Tbsp. butter
Mix sugar, cornstarch, cocoa powder, and salt in a saucepan. Gradually add milk and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until the mixture thickens and boils. Boil 1 minute and remove from heat.

Gradually stir half of the hot chocolate mixture into the egg yolks, then add egg mixture back into saucepan, stirring to combine. Boil 1 minute more. Remove from heat and still stirring, blend in butter.

Pour immediately into baked pie shell and cool in refrigerator. Top with fresh whipped cream to serve.

Evidently I am also 12 (or perhaps 14), as I like all the HSM movies and I'm in the middle of the Twilight series.

HSM 3 is SUB-par to the others. I mean, they don't even go to the prom. That's crap.
