Chocolate pie is also delicious served with some vanilla ice cream on the side as well as with, cookies, crackers or biscuits. Serve this with some coffee, tea or liqueur to complete the experience.
To make the filling, you only need a few simple ingredients that are readily available in most pastry, including dark chocolate, milk, white sugar, and eggs. Choose high quality dark chocolate for best results. Melt the chocolate using a heavy bottom saucepan over low medium heat, making sure to stir it constantly with a spatula so as to avoid clumping and sticking.
If you are using frozen pie dough, allow it to come to room temperature first before use. Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface and use a rolling pin to spread the dough to fit an 8-inch round pie dish. It should overlap the dish by about two inches, so roll the dough about 10 or 11 inches so that you can trim the edges after fitting it into the pie plate. Prick the bottom and the side of the shell with a fork to allow even baking. Chill the shell for about 30 minutes while you preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Place the baking sheet on the middle rack.
