My kids wanted to make a chocolate cream pie. I was worried about the crust being too sweet, but it was great. The filling was super creamy and rich, and oh so good.

Chocolate Graham Cracker Crust:
1¹⁄3 cups graham cracker crumbs
3 Tbl unsweetened cocoa
1/3 cup brown sugar
5 Tbl butter, softened
Chocolate Cream Filling:
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/2 tsp salt
3 cups milk
4 egg yolks
1 cup dark chocolate chips
2 Tbl butter, softened

3/4 cup heavy whipping cream

Preheat oven to 375°. Crust: Combine graham cracker crumbs, cocoa,
sugar and butter until combined. Press mixture into 9″ deep dish pie
plate, over bottom and up sides. Bake for 10 minutes.
Filling: Combine brown sugar, cornstarch and salt in heavy saucepan,
whisk until combined. In small bowl whisk together milk and egg
yolks. Add milk mixture to saucepan slowly, whisking until mixture is
smooth. Cook over medium heat, whisking constantly, until mixture
starts to bubble and thicken, about 6-8 minutes. Turn heat down to
simmer and cook, whisking constantly, another minute more until thick.
Remove from heat and stir in dark chocolate chips, butter, and vanilla.
Beat several times while cooling. Pour into crust and cover with plastic wrap or
wax paper. Chill until cold and set throughout, at least 4 hours.
Cream Topping: Whip cream with electric mixer until soft peaks, add
sugar and vanilla, continue whipping to stiff peaks. Spread whipped
cream over pie and garnish with dark chocolate.
