Triple Chocolate Pumpkin Pie

Chocolate Pumpkin Pie

Chocolate pumpkin pie has been on my To Bake list for a long, long time. It’s always been in the back of my mind, each fall or Christmas, to bake up one and see what it really tastes like.

This year I was truly inspired because Eagle Brand came out with a condensed milk that’s chocolate and I received some in my gift basket for the Safeway Cookie Challenge. It didn’t really occur to me what I could do with it until I opened my pantry one morning and saw the can of chocolate condensed milk sitting beside a can of pumpkin.

Even I can’t ignore a sign like that!

And so, my triple chocolate pumpkin pie was baked. And eaten.

And adored.

Oh, yum! If you like chocolate and pumpkin, this is your pie.

Chocolate Pumpkin Pie

 So, I have a few pet peeves when it comes to graham crust pies. I hate when they fall apart. To solve this, I made a super-duper thick crust on this bad boy.  Where the crust needs to be thick is the side crust, as shown in the picture below.

Look at that thickness. Let me tell you, each piece of pie didn’t even DARE think about falling apart. Each slice was perfect, just like below, which for a graham crust pie is nigh impossible.

You will need a 9 1/2 inch deep dish pie plate and I mean deep dish. This is a large, in charge pie and you will barely be able to use all the filling, but it does fit perfectly. A 10 inch pie plate would work as well, but then your crust won’t be as thick.

See how I’ve built up the sides below? Don’t be shy, make them thick and your pie will not fall apart.

 Oh, and that creamy pumpkin, chocolate interior? Take a gander at the beauty.

To die for, my friends. Add in that white chocolate on top and you have one seriously gorgeous, tasty pie for your dessert.

 Oh, I do hope you try this one and let me know what you think! You DO have to love chocolate and pumpkin together, so if you are not a fan then you won’t like it, that’s for sure. You can taste both of them together, which in my books makes this super amazing!

Happy Baking everyone!

Love,

    I can’t find chocolate evaporated milk at anywhere, any stores.  I called stores and they said they never hear about the chocolate evaporated milk, but they said they have Eagle Brand Chocolate Condensed Milk.   Should I add Eagle Brand Chocolate Condensed Milk to?

    I had a lot of trouble finding chocolate evaporated milk, so I ordered Eagle Brand chocolate condensed milk off Amazon. I hope that is okay for this recipe.

          Is it possible to use regular evaporated milk and add more chocolate or use regular sweetened condensed milk? I live in a very small town with no grocery store, only convenience stores. Definitely no chocolate condensed milk to be found.
