Salted Bourbon Chocolate Pie

Guys, chocolate pie is kind of “my thing.”  If I’m having a party– I am, most likely, making a chocolate pie.  If I’m having friends over for dinner, my first thought is, “How many times have I served them chocolate pie?”

Why?  Well for one thing, it’s delicious.  For another, it’s easy.  And probably, most importantly, it’s because of the gushing.  I love it.  Yes, that’s right– I keep making chocolate pie because everyone I’ve served it to has gushed about how amazing it is.  In fact, this Salted Bourbon Chocolate Pie was born because I didn’t want to disappoint the chocoholics I’d be serving, but wanted to switch things up from my normal Chocolate Truffle Pie.

Making Salted Bourbon Chocolate Pie

To make this pie, you don’t need amazing kitchen skills.  On a scale from easy to difficult, it’s ridiculously easy.  But you don’t have to tell your friends that– go ahead and let them think you’re a chocolate-master.  (You do, however, need about 4 hours to let your pie set up in the fridge.  Don’t forget to plan ahead.)

This Kentucky Bourbon Coffee is a Southern take on an Irish coffee, and is the perfect drink to keep you warm this winter. This caffeinated cocktail is made with freshly brewed coffee, coffee liqueur, bourbon, and cream.

Kentucky Bourbon Coffee

First, you need a graham cracker crust.  If you prefer a homemade graham cracker crust, go for it,* but for this pie I just use a premade one.  However, I always– Always– make my pie crust look homemade.   Simply pop the pie crust out of the foil pie plate it came in, set the pie crust inside a glass pie pan, and use a fork to crumble the sides.  Voila!  Congratulations– you just cheated on your pie crust.  Pat yourself on the back, and move on to the filling.

Next, pour heavy cream into a saucepan, and bring it to a boil over medium heat.  Take the cream off the heat immediately, and pour in the chocolate chips.  Now stir, stir, stir until the chocolate is melted.  Add the bourbon and vanilla, and stir again.  Pour the chocolate mixture into the prepared pie crust, and set it carefully into a level surface in the fridge for at least 4 hours.

Right before serving the pie, sprinkle some coarsely ground sea salt over the top of the pie.  Remember, with the salt– less is more.  Use about two pinches of salt over the whole top of the pie.  Serve this pie in small slices, about 1/2 or 1/3 the size of a regular pie slice, because this pie is RICH.  Enjoy your pie with some chocolate-loving friends, and spread the word to chocoholics everywhere.

Note: Normally I prefer homemade ingredients, but since the graham crackers I’d have to use in the pie crust are already ‘processed,’ for this pie crust I prefer to cheat and use premade.  If you’re looking for graham crackers with high quality ingredients, try looking for Annie’s Graham Crackers or at Trader Joe’s.

    Oh, my! Back to chocolate! I have days when l only crave salty stuff, and days when l go crazy on the sweet things. Well, your amazingly looking chocolate pie made me drool.
    Nothing wrong with using ready-made pie crust, sometimes shortcuts can be life saver.

    SCORE! Just in time for me to plan my V-day menu and I just bought a tart pan today that I think will work really well with this. My husband and I can save this delicious pie for when the kids to go bed. I’m all over this flavor combo!

    Ok…so salted chocolate has got to be one of the most delicious treats. This pie with addition of bourbon looks fantastic. My husband loves chocolate (way more than me) and he LOVES bourbon, so I know this would be a complete hit with him.

  7. Giselle Rochford says:

    Oh man this looks and sounds amazing. I’ve never made a chocolate pie before, which is insane now that I think about it because I ADORE chocolate. Definitely need to rectify that ASAP. Also, thanks for the ‘making store bought crust look homemade’ trick 😂
