2015 04Apr Recipes-CocoaPie FeatureIngredients

  • 1/2 cup cocoa
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch or arrowroot powder (or 1/2 cup all-purpose flour)
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • pre-baked pie shell


  1. Mix cocoa, cornstarch, beaten egg yolks, sugar, and salt
  2. Add milk gradually, while stirring, in a pot over med-high heat.
  3. Cook until thick, beating it smooth. Cream pies take some time to thicken, so stir… and stir (10-15 min). Using a heavy bottom pan really helps. Just keep it up until it thickens.
  4. Pour into a pre-baked pie shell.
  5. Put in the fridge to chill.
  6. Add whipped cream if you like, or use the leftover egg whites for a meringue topping!
