No recipe image available.A smooth, coffee-flavored cream filling and a melted semisweet chocolate-infused graham cracker crust makes this pie a winner.

Recipe Ingredients:

1/4 cup butter or margarine
2/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 1/3 cups graham cracker crumbs

For Filling:
1/2 cup granulated sugar
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon instant coffee powder
1/4 cup boiling water
1 1/4 cups milk
5 large egg yolks
1 package plastic wrap

For Topping:
1 3/4 cups heavy cream
1/4 cup powdered sugar

Cooking Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. For Crust: Melt butter and semisweet chocolate chips in a heavy saucepan over low heat. Stir in graham cracker crumbs then spoon into a buttered 9-inch pie plate, forming up the sides. Bake for 8 minutes. Cool.
