Chocolate cream pie is one of those desserts that’s incredibly simple (it’s basically just chocolate pudding in a pie crust), but incredibly satisfying.
There’s not much to say about this; it’s exactly what you’re hoping it’ll be.
The filling is dense and rich, with a very pronounced bittersweet chocolate flavour that’s nice and intense without being overpowering.
The cream helps to cut the richness from the chocolate filling, and the little bits of chocolate on top add additional texture and flavour.
The crust is nothing to write home about, though the pie was in the “day old” section of the bakery at a discount, so it’s possible it might have been better when it was just baked. There certainly wasn’t anything wrong with it, but nothing about it jumped out at me. The balance between the chocolate and the cream was so tasty, however, that it really didn’t matter.
