So I suppose you can make a decent chocolate cream pie using a store-bought crust, with store-bought instant chocolate pudding mix, and store-bought cool-whip, but…if you want a delicious and decadent chocolate cream pie that you can brag about (because you made it from scratch), then I highly suggest this recipe.
We all remember that chocolate cream pie quote from Julie & Julia don’t we? Well, if you don’t, here it is again:
“You know what I love about cooking? I love that after a day when nothing is sure and when I say nothing, I mean nothing. You can come home and absolutely know that if you add egg yolks to chocolate and sugar and milk, it will get thick. That’s such a comfort.”
