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 | Cookies and Cups

Chocolate Truffle Pie
serves 12
  • 1 pie crust
  • 1 cup cocoa powder, sifted (I used Hershey's Special Dark for a deep chocolate flavor)
  • ¾ cup light brown sugar
  • ¾ 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.

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?’

Aimee @ ShugarySweets

Happy Hack Free Day! This pie…OMG this pie….


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!!

Colleen @ What

This looks absolutely sinful! In the best way.


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. 🙂

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!

Pauline Gudas

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

Lauren at Keep It Sweet

My eyes just shot open when I saw that first picture. Please send that pie my way!

I’m always in for hardcore chocolate! This pie looks deliciously intense.

Joy @ Baking-Joy

Yuuuum 🙂 This looks so delicious…like eating pure chocolate ganache 🙂

Katrina @ Warm Vanilla Sugar

My mouth is watering so, so, much! Yum!

Mimi @ Culinary Couture

Oh my goodness, that first picture was all I needed. This pie needs to get in my belly asap

Elaine @ Cooking to Perfection

I’m not usually a pie person either, but this looks amazing. I’m a choco-holic, so I must try this soon!!

Annie @ Annie

I think this pie is made of my dreams. I would just eat it with miles and miles of whipped cream.

Cookbook Queen

No pie for you, stupid hacker!!

This looks so fab. Like, unreal. I need a giant slice!!

Julianne @ Beyond Frosting

OH MY WORD! I instantly fell in love, after I almost spit out my coffee because I was laughing so hard about your pie crust comment.


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!


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!

Annie @ Annie

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 😀

Gloria @ Simply Gloria

I think I’m going to drink the batter straight from the bowl! Oh my! So pinning this!


Hooo, boy! That is one good lookin’ pie!

(I said that with my best southern twang. )

Love it!


YUM!! Just looking at it is making my sweet tooth go all tingly 🙂

Olivia @ Liv Lives Life

Wow. It’s times like these when I get really bummed I’m allergic to eggs! This looks incredible!


This looks AMAZING!!! I just gave up chocolate for 40 days of Lent, and this is EXACTLY what I’ve been craving!


Must make soon! It’s so gorgeous and it’s calling my name!

Nikki Howser

Oh jeeez! This looks utterly rich and amazing!! Well done 🙂


Yummy!!!!!!! I cannot wait to make this. This is truly the sexiest looking pie, I have ever seen!


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.


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.

Heather M.

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?

Beth @ The Collegiate Baker

Oh my goodness, this looks incredible! Love that last picture with the ice cream and hot fudge sauce!

Did you say hard core chocolate? 🙂 Yummers! The fudge sauce drips are mesmerizing!

Colette @ JFF!

Oh, I know what I want for my birthdaaaaaaaaaay……..

Tina @ Tina

This looks so easy and rich! I’m up for the task. It’s a hard job but someone’s gotta do it. 😉 Pinned and trying asap!

Averie @ Averie Cooks

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!

Ali | Gimme Some Oven

So sorry to hear about your hacker. This pie looks AMAZINGLY decadent and beautiful. Would love a piece!!

Erin @ Dinners, Dishes and Desserts

Dang, this looks insane!!! Why, oh WHY am I even attempting a 60 day health challenge?

Carla @ Carlas Confections

Hackers suck! And they should really learn to eat instead of suck! And eat this pie. I want to eat this pie, although I would probably inhale it rather than just eat it, and inhale it all in one sitting. (did I just give you the worst visual EVER?!)

Anne @ Have a Cookie!

Lord have mercy on my waistline . . .


That is seriously fudgy chocolate central heaven. I don’t even have enough words to describe it!

And BOO to hackers! They are so annoyingly inconvenient.

Elizabeth @ Confessions of a Baking Queen

This pie looks over the all the good ways!

Jenna @

Oh dear Lord. I mean that in the best possible way. I love that it still looks all gooey. This adult human with a child human mindset wants it NOW!

Lisa @ Floating Along...

Ohmygosh this pie looks absolutely incredible!!

Loretta | A Finn In The Kitchen

That stinks about the hacker, but I’m glad to see that you’re back.

I can’t get over the ‘black-as-night’ color of this pie! That alone, is enough to get it pinned 🙂


Wow! I am loving this. It looks so chocolatey and awesome! yum. yum. yum!


Oh my, another keeper! Sorry to hear about the hacker…could this be why my recipe box is suddenly empty? 🙁


I am making this on Thursday night! Your blog is wonderful!!

Jenn @ Once Upon a Tier

You are killing me. I don’t know what else to say besides my mouth is now watering like crazy.

Georgia @ The Comfort of Cooking

You are KILLING me with this pie! I’ve had the most insane need for chocolate lately!

Katy @ KatysKitchen

This looks so decadent and delicious. There is nothing wrong with store bought pie crust, 5 minute recipes are really the best!
