Chocolate pie recipe

DBF really wanted a chocolate pie, a sort of obession with him. So we tried different method, such as buying ready made cream and cooking it in the pie crust. But as usual, we can't control what's in the cream.

So I tried to make my own chocolate cream. The first attempt with real chocolate tasted a bit weird, so I decided to try with Nesquik. I love Nesquik and it's designed to go well with milk. And tada ! the perfect recipe. And you can also make tartelets, like in the picture.

Start with making a basic pie crust (recipe here)
Read the preliminary notes


450 ml of cold milk
2 soup spoon Maizena
1 egg yolk
90 g of instant chocolate powder (Nesquik)


Cook the crust blank 5-10 minutes at 180°c. Meanwhile, prepare the cream.

Put 350 ml of milk and the chocolate to boil in a pan, and dilute the Maizena in the remaining cold milk. Add the egg yolk and mix..

Remove the pie from the oven before the milk boils. Because once it does, you'll have to add the Maizena, egg mix to the pan, mixing constantly, and the cream will thicken fast (in about 1 minute max). And you want to have the pie crust nearby to pour the cream in.

Oven cook the pie 10-15 minutes at 180°c.
