Ingredients

Crust

Filling

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 2 egg yolks, slightly beaten
  • 1 package (3 oz) cream cheese, cubed, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 450°F. Make pie crust as directed on box for One-Crust Baked Shell using 9-inch glass pie pan. Bake 9 to 11 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool completely.
  • 2
    In 2-quart saucepan, mix sugar, cornstarch and salt. Gradually stir in milk until well blended. Add chocolate chips and egg yolks; cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture is thickened. Remove from heat. Beat in cream cheese with wire whisk until smooth. Cover surface with plastic wrap; refrigerate just until cool, about 1 hour.
  • 3
    In large bowl with electric mixer, beat whipping cream and vanilla on high speed until soft peaks form. Reserve 1 cup whipped cream for topping. Fold remaining whipped cream into cooled chocolate mixture. Spoon evenly into cooled baked shell. Refrigerate 6 to 8 hours or overnight. Spoon or pipe reserved whipped cream over filling. Store in refrigerator.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Pie baking can be even easier when you use Pet-Ritz® frozen pie crusts. Find them in the freezer case with a precrimped edge, ready to use. The disposable pan makes clean up a snap.
