There are days when you just need ooey gooey chocolate. This pie is perfect for those days; it’s a Chocolate Chess Pie with a graham cracker crust. It’s ooey, gooey, chocolatey, fudgy, and crunchy all at the same time!
We’re heading full-tilt into pie season…and this Chocolate Chess Pie needs to be on your list of to-make. I think you should make it today. Then curl up with a good book and a fork. #nojudgements
I’m in LOVE with this Chocolate Chess Pie, y’all. Actually, I’m in love with all chess pies, but especially this one. Have you ever had or made a chess pie? They’re probably some of the easier pies to make – one bowl for the filling, no prep, just stir – and they turn out perfectly every time.
Why is it called a chocolate chess pie?
Chess Pie, by definition, is a pie that’s a mixture of eggs, butter, and sugar, and then you add other flavors. Like peanut butter. Or lemon. Or peppermint. Or coconut! The result is a smooth and rich filled pie that has a texture not unlike the filling in a pecan pie. In fact, Pecan Pie is like a version of chess pie with nuts.
This chess pie? Is CHOCOLATE. It tastes and smells like a rich melty gooey brownie. Are you one of those people that set their eyes on the center of the brownie pan and will commit acts of treason to get to it first (ahem), then this pie is for you.
The filling of this pie is like the center of a gooey brownie. It’s rich, chocolatey, fudgy, and it’s seriously one of the best things in the whole world! And then I added chopped up peanut butter cups to it. AND I gave it a thick and crunchy graham cracker crust.
