Chocolate Pumpkin Pie- Table for Seven

Ingredients Needed:

  • 9 inch deep dish pie crust
  • Pumpkin puree
  • Brown sugar
  • Evaporated milk
  • Eggs
  • Ground cinnamon + Cloves + Salt
  • Chocolate chips

Pumpkin Puree: Be sure it’s pure pumpkin, not pumpkin pie filling.

Pie Crust: You will need a 9 inch deep dish pie crust for this one. You can make it homemade, but, for a deep dish, I prefer to go with the frozen variety. Simply defrost it before baking.

How to Make:

  • First, let your pie crust defrost. While defrosting, preheat your oven to 425 degrees.
  • Make the filling for your pie and pour into the pie crust.
  • Bake for just 15 minutes, then, reduced your oven temperature to 350 degrees.
  • Continue baking until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  • Let the pie cool completely before topping with chocolate.
  • When cooled, heat egg yolk and evaporated milk for the chocolate topping. Continue until it’s thicken. This should take about 5-10 minutes.
  • Once thicken, remove from heat and stir in chocolate chips. Mix until they are totally melted and it’s smooth.
  • Then, spread over the cooled pie.
  • Refrigerate for at 2 hours before serving.

Storage: Keep any leftovers in the refrigerator.
