French Silk Pie Dip with Pie Crust Dippers

I’ve been dying to make a chocolate pie dip ever since my sleepless-night-pie-dip-list-making fiasco.
The Lemon Meringue Pie Dip rocked my socks.
So I felt pretty good about trying a French Silk Pie Dip.
It’s phenomenal. Of course.
But really, how could a bowl full of chocolate pie be anything less?
Add Dorothy’s Pie Crust Dippers for a truly amazing chocolate pie experience.

French Silk Pie Dip with Pie Crust Dippers
Recipe adapted from: Judy Elizabeth’s Flock
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 cup butter
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 Tbsp. vanilla
  • 6 Tbsp. unsweetened Cocoa Powder (I used Hershey’s Special Dark)
  • 2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 1 pie crust, prepared (homemade or store bought)
  1. Over medium-low heat, stir together the sugar, butter, cocoa, vanilla, and oil. Stir until melted and heated through.
  2. Add eggs, one at a time, while constantly whisking the mixture (so that you don’t end up with chocolate and scrambled eggs!). Make sure one egg is completely whisked in before adding another.
  3. Whisk by hand for 3-4 minutes over low heat.
  4. Either pour into a serving bowl and let chill in the refrigerator overnight before serving OR pour into a ziptop bag and let sit in an ice bath to chill for 10 minutes. It’s much firmer (in a good way) if you let it chill overnight.
  5. Cut out pie crust dippers (just as you would sugar cookies). Bake at 450º for about 5 minutes until golden and crispy.

    Whoa now. This is serious business. Chocolate overload, methinks–but that pie crust dipper picture with the chocolate pie dip on top–I may have licked the screen on that one. You’re a master dipper, Ashton!

    Um. I don’t even know what to say to this. I don’t think I could just use one of the little pie crust dippers, I would probably be using a spoon!

    I love this twist on pie! My mom would make dippers with the scraps of pie crust dough when we were kids, and this use for them is absolutely perfect :)

    This was a SUPER hit at the Dessert Social our parent group hosted for our teachers and staff at my daughter’s high school. AND, the amazement over the flavors and yumminess of the PB&J pop corn ( was fun to see, too. I’ll come back to your site again and again to show the staff the love through food!
