Prep Time 21 mins | Cook Time 1 hr 10 mins | Total Time 1 hr 31 mins


  • 1 9-inch unbaked pie crust, store-bought or homemade
  • 1  cup (200g) granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup (29.5g) unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ¼ cup (½ stick, 57g) unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 can (5 ounces or ⅔ cup) evaporated milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • confectioners’ sugar, for dusting
  • whipped topping, for garnish


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. On a lightly floured surface, roll pie crust out into a 12-inch circle. Carefully transfer the crust to a 9-inch pie plate. Cinch the edge of your pie crust to create your desired shape.
  3. In a large bowl, add sugar and cocoa. Whisk together until combined.
  4. Add butter, eggs, evaporated milk, and vanilla. Continue to mix until well combined.
  5. Pour the filling into the prepared pie crust. Bake for 45-50 minutes, or until mostly set (some jiggle is okay). Turn off the oven, crack open the oven door, and leave the pie in the oven as it cools for 20-30 minutes. During this time, the top of the pie will gently fall/sink back down.
  6. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely.
  7. Dust with confectioners’ sugar or garnish with whipped topping.
