Triple Chocolate Cream Pie

Ingredients

1 (10 inch) baked pie crust
3 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
3 ounces semi sweet chocolate, chopped
3 ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped
3 tablespoons butter
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup corn starch
3/4 teaspoon salt
6 large egg yolks
4 1/2 cups whole milk
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1 1/2 cups whipping cream
2 tablespoons powdered sugar

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

In a microwaves safe bowl, heat the three chocolatess and butter until just melted.  Reserve.

In a heavy sauce pan whisk together the sugar, corn starch, salt, and egg yolks until combined.  Gradually add the milk, whisking the entire time.  Bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat (7-10 minutes), stirring constantly.  Allow the mixture to boil for 1-2 minutes, or until thick like pudding.  Remove from heat and stir in the melted chocolate and vanilla.  Cover surface and cool.

Once the chocolate filling is about room temperature, pour into prepared crust and chill at least 6 hours or overnight.

When ready to serve, whip the cream with the powdered sugar and spread over pie.

Note:  A simple way to make chocolate curls is to run a vegetable peeler down the side of a Hershey Bar. 🙂
