Pressing and Whisking

And then, you’re gonna use this tool to press towards the corner to bring some of that material up and form a border. This is pretty basic. I’m sure most of you have done these at home. But, just in case, I always like to take you through all the steps. Now it’s time to use our fingers and press down. Press, press, press. This is not gonna be a gorgeous pie crust. It’s just a delicious and easy Mud Pie Recipe.

Anyways, continue till you have four, or five egg yolks. Whisk ’em up. And we’re gonna set it aside, easy to get tempered later on. So, in the medium bowl, whisk up half a cup of milk and a quarter a cup of cornstarch. You want like a nice uniform slurry, not big lumps. All right, set that aside. And now, for the last little bit of mixing.

Into a medium saucepan, you’re gonna add in one cup of cream, 240 ml. Delicious. One half of a cup of milk. A generous quarter teaspoon of salt. Two-thirds of a cup of sugar. And we’re gonna whisk this up. And now, transfer it to medium-high heat. My milk mixture is warming up and continuing to stir, I’m adding in half a teaspoon of instant espresso right now. This is optional, but I love the way the coffee flavor brings out the chocolate. It’s come to a boil.

Taking it off of the heat right now. I have my whisked-up eggs in a large bowl, where they should have been all along. Give that starch mixture a whisk and add that in. Get that all in there. Mix it up. And now, we’re gonna temper the eggs by slowly drizzling in the hot milk mixture. This is just gonna get rinsed out quick and then we’re gonna put it back on the heat.

Thickening Mixture

Pour that milk mixture back in, carefully don’t spill! And we’re gonna whisk this until it comes to, like, a boil and this thickens up. All right, it’s starting to thicken up. I can feel it with my whisk. Once that happens, you really wanna keep stirring, and stir a bit harder. You can see on the bottom how it’s beginning to thicken up. We can reduce the heat now to medium, and cook for an additional minute.

Time to take it off the heat. If you notice some fat separating because we put a lot of cream in there, people, just whisk, whisk, whisk, whisk, whisk and it’ll all reincorporate and look really, almost like butterscotch. This tastes good, I’ve been sneaking some bites. Time to add in our six ounces of chopped chocolate. The chocolate will help cool the mixture down and make it a delicious chocolate pie.

Vanilla Touch and Glossy Finish

I’m also gonna add a splash of vanilla. It’s optional as well, but why not? That was about a teaspoon. All right now let’s stir it together. This is already, like, insane. There we go. And I would whisk this up until it’s nice homogenous and glossy. It’ll also help cool the mixture down just a bit before we add it to our pie shell. Let’s give it a little taste test. Let’s pull that chocolate pie crust out of the freezer and dump this in.

Add that all in there. Then, just give it a swirl so that it, looks a little more pretty. A little more purdy. Because this chocolate pie is all about indulgence, before I pop it into the fridge to chill, I’m gonna coat it with chocolate ganache. This is like silky, amazing deliciousness. You can do a one-to-one ratio of, like, bittersweet or semi-sweet chocolate and cream melted together, or a two-to-one ratio.

This is somewhere in between. So, just drizzle it on, all over. This’ll get covered up by whipped cream, so don’t worry if it’s not perfect-looking. But this is gonna be amazing. This is like a chocolate lover’s dream. That is all covered, ready to go into the fridge and set. You can serve this, like, at the end of the day, so maybe, like, in four hours or so, or you can just make this the night ahead, top it with whipped cream and some crushed Oreos before serving.
