Grandma’s Chocolate Pie !!


It’s simple and most tasty. Often used during the 50’s and 60’s it was a very simple dessert. Mom, of course, made her own pie crust back in those days, now we buy frozen….This is a tried and true recipe !

Simple and easy ! My whole family loves this recipe so much. If it were for them, I’d be making this every day! Give it a shot, you’ll love it!


1/2 cup cocoa
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
3 egg yolks
1 1/2 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Mix cocoa, flour, beaten egg yolks, sugar, and salt, add milk while stirring in a pot over medium/high heat. Cook until thick, beating it smooth. Cream-pies take some time to thicken, so stir, stir. 10-15 minutes. Just keep stirring until it thickens. Pour into a pre-baked pie shell. Put in the refrigerator to cool. add whipped cream or use leftover egg whites for a meringue topping. Enjoy!!
