  • 1 fully baked pie crust
  • 2 sticks salted butter, softened (230 grams)
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar (300 grams)
  • 2 ounces unsweetened chocolate, melted and cooled (56 grams)
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 4 large eggs, brought to room temperature
  • Whipped cream or whipped topping


  • Have ready a fully baked pie crust.
  • Beat sugar and butter for 10 to 15 minutes using the whisk attachment of a stand mixer. The goal is to make it less grainy. Even after 15 minutes, mine was still slightly grainy, but it smoothed out after adding the eggs.
  • Beat in the chocolate and vanilla, then add two of the eggs and beat for another 5 minutes. Add two more eggs and beat for 5 minutes. Pour into cooled pie crust. Chill 2 hours or until firm. Before serving, top with whipped cream and a little grated chocolate.
