Marie Callender’s Chocolate Satin Pie has been a favorite of mine for years. We used to live close to a Marie Callender’s restaurant and we would buy this pie every time it went on sale. It is so rich, creamy, and smooth!
A few years ago, we moved to another city and we don’t have a Marie Callender’s close by anymore. I’m hosting Thanksgiving dinner this year and I wanted to serve a chocolate cream pie along with pumpkin and some fruit pies. I found a copycat recipe online at Budget Gourmet Mom. I tried it out on my family and some friends last night and everyone loved it! It’s definitely going on the menu for Thanksgiving dinner.
This recipe is pretty close to the original and much better than the frozen version you can buy at the grocery store. There are a few steps to getting the filling just right, but the extra steps are worth it. The filling is delicious! You need to make this when no one else is at home, and hide it in the very back of the fridge, or it won’t last until you are ready to serve it for dessert! A quick tip – be careful when melting the chocolate chips in the microwave. They can burn easily and burnt chocolate tastes horrible, turns dry and brittle, and is no longer fit to use in the recipe. Stir well between each heating. Enjoy!
