Chocolate Truffle Pie

So, I hope you all had a great holiday weekend..

I did, for sure, except for the return of my friend, the hacker.


Seems like he/she has chosen my little molecule of internet space as a fun spot to mess with.

Easter weekend…Superbowl weekend…I’m sensing a cooking-day-when-people-need-recipes-theme here.

I guess I’m a bit of a conspiracy theorist, but seems a little coincidental, right?


Anyhow, again, since I have the best computery person that helps me here, we got it straightened out.  Again.


So let’s celebrate a hacker-free site.

With pie.


I’m not a huge pie girl, and when I make them, they typically involve chocolate…like this one, and this one and thisssss one.

And today is no exception.

I made Chocolate Truffle Pie.


Let me start by telling you that this pie is not for the faint of heart.  It’s majorly major.

Serious chocolate.

Hard core chocolate.


Only make this is you’re die hard.

Luckily I am, so let’s proceed.

Chocolate Truffle Pie | Cookies and CupsThe filling of this pie is a dense no-flour chocolate filling.

Basically a brownie on crack.

And, the great thing about it, is it’s fancy enough to serve to adult humans, but yummy enough that child humans will love it.

Annnnd you can make it in like 5 minutes…I mean, minus the baking and cooling parts.


Start with a pie crust….
 photo IMG_8612_zpsb4799f82.jpgI used a store bought pie crust.
Settle down you pie people, I am working on my crust-craft, so until I have my favorite recipe to share we’re going the store bought route.
I don’t judge you when you get all crust from scratchy…so…

Crust from scratchy sounded gross, what is wrong with me?

Moving on…

Sift some cocoa powder into your mixing bowl…

Yes, that’s seven eggs in there.

(I used a pie crust shield about halfway through baking to prevent my crust from getting too brown.  Here’s the one that I have, I love it!)


Wait until it’s cooled to serve it and you must MUST serve it with ice cream.

It’s a law I think.

Also, since you saved so much time making your pie with a store bought crust, I think you should make some homemade fudge sauce to go over top.  Just a suggestion.

I used this Homemade Hot Fudge Sauce Recipe. It’s ahmahgah amazing.

Chocolate Truffle Pie


serves 12


  • 1 pie crust
  • 1 cup cocoa powder, sifted (I used Hershey’s Special Dark for a deep chocolate flavor)
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 7 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla


  1. Preheat oven to 400°
  2. Place pie crust in 9″ pie pan, pinching the crusts.
  3. In a mixing bowl combine combine sifted cocoa powder, both sugars, salt, eggs and vanilla.
  4. Beat on low until ingredients combine together and then on medium until smooth and glossy, about 45-60 seconds.
  5. Pour batter into crust and bake for 35-40 minutes until center is set.
  6. Remove from oven and cool before slicing.


Serve with ice cream and chocolate sauce.

You might need to use a pie crust shield to help prevent the crust from getting too brown.

Hi! I’m Shelly and I’m an addict. Of the buttercream sort. I started this site a few years ago as a way to justify my sugary, buttery obsession with desserts. It has worked out well for me so far, because as it turns out you guys all love sugary, buttery desserts too! It feels good to know you're not alone, doesn’t it?

  1. This is so intense and hardcore and I love it! I rarely make pies but would gladly make this one. Pinning!

    And you were hacked…again. That is awful! My husband has had his credit card #’s stolen multiple times…it’s like, really…again. Ugh!

    Two things…one…this pie looks AH-mazing and two…the font you chose for your photo is CUTE AS PIE (pun intended!) I’m a font-a-holic…can you share the name of the font you used?

    I look at your site daily and I was so troubled by the hacker attack.
    I’m so glad you got it fixed up, I didn’t know what to do with myself.
    You’re treats always look so delightful, and all the ones I’ve made have been just wonderful.

    Don’t worry about that pie crust. In fact, in order to maximize chocolate consumption, I might make this with a chocolate graham cracker crust. It looks amazing.

  5. Boo for hackers! Just so uncool, although your bit of internet space is just amazing so maybe they’re jealous, but still they should bog off. So, I think I just put on 5lbs looking at this pie…. It’s amazing!!! I’m not mad keen on pies, but when chocolate is involved anything is good and I’m definitely a die hard so I could cope with this! Haha my other half doesn’t like chocolate which just means there’s more for me 😀

  6. Oh that looks so good. I am indeed a die hard chocoholic and I have the hips to prove it. Thanks for this recipe and the fudge topping. Looks yummy!

  7. This looks so rich and amazing! You got some crazy awesome talent girl!!!

    Remember mean people (hackers) pick on people they are jealous of! Poop on them! Sorry I’m a child!

    I just have to have that pie right now. It looks you deliver?? I love your blog and website. You truly inspire me

    A brownie on crack sounds right up my hubby’s alley! And the fact that it takes just 5 minutes to make sounds right up my alley! I love the deep dark brown color of the pie. Thanks for sharing this recipe. Gotta pin this one!

    This looks illegal (in a good way). But, as a new baker (by the way, your site is the one I turn to most for inspiration) I’m a bit naive and was curious what a “pie crust shield” is? Sorry if this is a stupid question. 🙂

  11. Larissa

    OH that pie!!!!!!!!!! I need to make it asap. Maybe for my Mother’s Day gathering? Maybe not. Then I would have to share it!!

  12. Shut the front door. This pie just hit me in the face! I want it! I need it! Life is no longer complete!

    Sorry ’bout your hacker. Do you have the WP plugin ‘limit login attempts?’
