A rich chocolate/cherry pie

I got this recipe from my mom, I don't know where she got it. It is very rich, so be careful!


(1 pie)


  1. Prepare your favorite crust for a filled 1-crust pie.
  2. Preheat oven to In a medium saucepan, combine sugar, cocoa and flour; add butter and milk. Cook until mixture begins to boil, stirring constantly. Remove from heat.
  3. Add small amount of hot mixture to eggs, mix well, then fold egg mixture into the chocolate mixture.
  4. Fold 1/3 of the pie filling into chocolate mixture; save the rest for the topping. Pour chocolate mixture into pie crust.
  5. Bake at for 35-45 minutes or until center is set but still shiny. Cool, and chill one hour.
  6. Whip the cream. Combine 2 cups whipped cream and grated chocolate and spread over cooled pie. Top with remaining pie filling, and the remaining whipped cream. Chill at least half an hour before serving.


I use a pre-mixed whipped topping rather than real whipped cream when I make this pie.


Difficulty: easy.
Time: 30 minutes preparation, 3 hours cooking and cooling.
Precision: measure the ingredients.
