Straight from grandma’s kitchen, Yoder’s Amish Chocolate Pie is smooth, silky, and practically melts in your mouth. Each slice is satisfying without being overly rich. We love topping it with gobs of whipped cream and sprinkling with chocolate shavings.

Mmmm, talking about some good, old-fashioned cooking, what beats mashed potatoes, gravy, and grilled chicken? The pie flavors were, of course, chocolate, and also lemon, apple, peach, coconut, and oatmeal.

We chatted with friends as we ate. My favorite part of the evening was to come. Twenty youth gathered as a group to the side and began singing. Chorus after chorus rang out proclaiming the love and redemption of Jesus. I felt inspired and motivated to keep looking to Jesus and my source of hope and joy. Is there something about singing that can comfort, administer hope, or impart gladness in whatever we may be facing? Even in difficult situations when singing is the last thing we feel like doing, God does bless our hearts as we raise our voice in song to him.

How about making a chocolate pie? Here is the recipe!


1 cup sugar
2 1/2 tablespoons flour
2 tablespoons cocoa
1 1/2 cups milk
2 egg yolks
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1 9-inch baked pie crust (Try my Amish Never Fail Pie Crust recipe below!)
Whipped cream
Chocolate shavings
In a large sauce pan, whisk together the sugar, flour, and cocoa.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the milk, yolks, and vanilla. Pour into the sauce pan.
Turn the heat to medium and stir in the butter. Bring to a simmer and allow to thicken.
Pour into the baked pie crust and smooth the top. Let cool at room temperature for 2 hours and chill in the refrigerator for an additional 2 hours.
Top with whipped cream and chocolate shavings.
