Dark Chocolate Cream Pie Recipe with Hot Chocolate Sauce

To make a dark chocolate pudding and pie filling, you simply need to add some dark chocolate to chocolate pudding. The following dark chocolate pie also contains walnuts, eggs, vanilla and more, for a sumptuous and mouthwatering result. You can use pecans instead of the walnuts if you want to.

Serve this dark chocolate cream pie recipe alone or, as the recipe suggests, with some sorbet and fresh fruit slices to contrast with the richness of the dark chocolate. It is best to serve the chocolate sauce hot, so try to have everything else ready when the sauce is ready. The sorbet will begin to melt as soon as you put it on top of the sauce but the two melt into each other and taste wonderful together so that’s no problem.

This dark chocolate pie is a chocoholic’s dream and it is surprisingly easy to make too. The different flavors and textures give a nice contrast and the hot sauce is equally amazing with the cold sorbet. Vanilla ice cream is also delicious with this dark chocolate cream pie recipe, if you do not have sorbet. In fact, chocolate and vanilla are used together in lots of different recipes and the chocolate pie contains a touch of vanilla too.
