German Chocolate Pie

German Chocolate PieIf you love chocolate as much as I do, this will be the most amazing pie you will ever eat!   While traveling thru a small Amish town several years ago, we stopped at an authentic Amish restaurant that served German Chocolate Pie.  It was so good, we ended up buying an entire pie to eat the next day!  Ever since I have been dreaming about, drooling over, and seriously craving this pie.  After many attempts, I think I have finally perfected it!  (I knew I had it right when my family ate the entire pie out of the pan before it even had time to cool!)  Hope you love it too!!!

  1. Hi I’m loving your blog and the not overly intricate recipes. This recipe sounds like a chocolate lovers heaven. I am new to blogging and also feature good tasty family recipes at here in England.

  2. ok, i made this last night and it was really amazing!! so much yummy chocolate.
    it took me more than 40 minutes to bake mine though.
    (AND i was right, my mother in law loved it!)

  3. Tried this pie last night and it turned out very thick (had to spread in pan). Then after it baked it was like fudge. Is this normal?

  4. Hi!! I made this pie for thanksgiving and all though it was delicious, it was near impossible to cut, it was so thick and dense. I was really looking forward to something gooier like the picture. You say “DO NOT OVERBAKE” but how do I know if I did? And should I have refrigerated? I really want to try again for Christmas–any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

    • How long did you bake it for the first time? It sounds like it may have been overbaked… it should have the consistency of a thick, gooey brownie.

  5. Found this on pinterest and made it today. To.Die.For. I baked it 35 minutes and 40 probably would have been better but still yummy. Chilled it in fridge and just had a slice with some vanilla ice cream! Thank you!
