Delicious Chocolate Chess Pie Recipe


  •  cups granulated sugar (300g)
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder (25g)
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 4 large eggs
  • ½ cup unsalted butter melted (120ml)
  • ¼ cup evaporated milk (60ml)

  • 1 (9-inch) unbaked pie crust store-bought or homemade*


  • Preheat the oven to 350F.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the sugar, cocoa powder, and salt. Add the eggs and whisk until well combined. Add the melted butter, milk, and vanilla, and whisk until well combined. Pour into the pie crust.
  • Bake for 50 minutes or until the filling is puffed and just barely wobbles in the center when gently shaken. Remove from the oven and let cool completely on a wire rack. For cleaner slicing, chill for a few hours before slicing. Refrigerate any leftovers for up to 4 days.

Q1) How do I store leftovers?

Refrigerate any leftover chocolate cheese pie for up to 4 days. Keep it covered so it doesn’t absorb any odor from the fridge.

Q2) Can I freeze this pie?

You sure can! If you’d like to freeze an entire pie, I recommend baking it in an aluminum pan so it’s easier to store. Allow the pie to cool completely, then wrap the pie up with a couple of layers of aluminum foil and freeze for up to 3 months.

Thaw the pie overnight in the fridge and reheat in the oven until warmed through when ready to enjoy. You can also freeze the pie in individual slices. Wrap them up and place them in a freezer-safe bag.

Q3) What is the difference between this pie and buttermilk pie?

The two pies look similar, but a buttermilk pie uses flour, but this chocolate chess pie uses cocoa to thicken the filling. There is also buttermilk added to give the pie a tangy flavor.
