It's egg yolks, milk, sugar, and chocolate for the pie. Whipped cream for the top. No butter, believe it or not!

I couldn't find the recipe online, but I'll try to post it for you tomorrow. I was at the grocery store hungry, waiting to check out, and saw Paula Deen's Chocolate Celebrations magazine on the rack. The rest is history.

Recipe
My Favorite Chocolate Pie by Paula Deen

1/2 (15-ounce) package refrigerated pie crust (1)
2/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/8 tsp salt
6 egg yolks
2 1/2 cups milk
4 (1-ounce) squares semisweet chocolate
4 (1-ounce) squares bittersweet chocolate
1 (12-ounce) container frozen nondairy whipped topping, thawed*
Garnish" unsweetened cocoa powder, chocolate curls

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
On a lightly floured surface, unroll pie crust. Roll pastry into a 12-inch circle. Press pie crust into a 9-inch pie plate, crimping edges if desired. Prick bottom and sides of pie crust with a fork. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until crust is lightly brown. Let cool

In a large saucepan, whisk together sugar, cornstarch, and salt.
In a small bowl, whisk together egg yolks and milk. Add to sugar mixture, whisking until smooth. Bring to a boil over medium heat, whisking constantly. Boil for 1 minute. Remove from heat; stir in chocolate, whisking until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth. Pour into prepared pie crust. Cover and chill for 4 hours.
Top pie with whipped topping before serving. Garnish if desired. Cut into wedges to serve.

*I used heavy cream, slightly sweetened with sugar instead. I whipped it and put it on the pie. I didn't want to put artificial whipped cream on such a scrumptious chocolate pie!

That looks amazing. Is it the low-cal, low-fat version? *snort*

Yeah, if eggs, whole milk, chocolate and heavy cream are low-cal, low-fat.

It was so good. And it was even better the next day. The chocolate part was almost fudge. It's dangerously good.
