Double Chocolate Cream Pie

While staying at our house, my Aunt Anne taught me how to make a chocolate cream pie. We used Paula Deen's recipe, 'Double chocolate Cream Pie' It turned out amazing. I would definitely recommend this recipe to anyone. It is very chocolaty, but for me that makes it all the better! Here is the recipe:

You Will Need-
1 cup sugar-
1/4 cup cocoa-
1/4 cup corn starch-
Pinch of salt-
3 cups whole milk-
3 egg yolks-
1½ teaspoons vanilla extract-
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips-
One 9" deep dish piecrust, baked & cooled-
Sweetened whipped cream (optional)-
Chopped toasted pecans (optional)
In a heavy-bottomed 1-quart saucepan, combine the sugar, cocoa, cornstarch and salt. Stir with a spoon to mix. Combine the milk and egg yolks and whisk until well-blended. Slowly begin adding the milk and egg mixture to the chocolate mixture, blending well with a metal spoon. Cook the mixture over medium heat until it thickens, stirring constantly (about 5 minutes). When it is quite thick, add the vanilla and chocolate chips. Stir until completely blended. Pour into the piecrust, allow to cool, cover and refrigerate until ready to serve. Top with the whipped cream and pecans before you serve!
