Directions

2

Preheat oven to 350ºF. Measure chocolate chips and 1 Tbsp butter, set aside.

3

Crush Oreos in a food processor until fine crumbs. Add melted butter and mix until combined.

4

Press Oreo crumbs into a 9” pie plate. Bake for 5 minutes, set aside.

5

Pour sugar, cornstarch and salt into medium saucepan, whisk together.

6

Add half & half and egg yolks. Whisk together.

7

Turn heat to medium-high. Whisk constantly until mixture comes to a boil, making sure to thoroughly scrape the bottom and corners of the pan continually. Boil over medium-low for 1 minute while whisking constantly.

8

Remove from heat and immediately add chocolate chips & 1 Tbsp butter. Whisk until completely melted and combined. Whisk in vanilla.

9

Immediately pour into pie crust. Cover with plastic wrap, pressing the plastic onto the custard so that a film doesn’t form as custard cools. Refrigerate for 4 hours.

10

Beat heavy cream, powdered sugar and vanilla together until stuff peaks. Top cold pie with whipped cream and chocolate shavings.

11

Keep refrigerated and serve cold.

Notes

*Recipe tips: The chocolate custard can burn easily and quickly. I recommend cooking it over medium-low heat the entire time for beginners. It takes longer but is less likely to burn. I also recommend using high quality chocolate chips or baking chocolate.
