Mini Chocolate Pies


Another one from a friend’s grandmother.  This was a recipe that my mother-in-law asked me to make anytime we got together to eat.  Rich, creamy and so delicious.


Simple Ingredients:

  • 2 T cocoa
  • 3 eggs yolk
  • 3 1/2 T cold water
  • 3 1/2 T flour
  • 1 Cup sugar
  • 1 Cup hot water
  • 1/2 stick butter – room temperature
  • 1 T vanilla
  • 8 tart shells
  • Whipped Topping

With a fork, poke holes in tart shells.  Bake empty tart shells according to package directions.


(not pictured) Add ingredients, one at a time to a mixer, incorporating each one completely before adding the next ingredient.  Add the ingredients in the order given in the recipe.

Poor into a medium pot to cook on stove.


Stir continuously over medium heat until it thickens.  I look for mine to be the consistency of pudding.


Once it is the desired consistency, take the pot off the stove.


Spoon the chocolate filling into the baked tart shells.


Serve now or refrigerate and serve chilled later.

Enjoy!  T
