Chocolate Pie Bites:
  • 2½ tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 1½ cups whole milk
  • 14 Dove Dark Chocolate Promises, unwrapped & chopped (or 4 oz. other kind of chopped dark chocolate)
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, softened
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 batch of pie crust (see recipe below)
  • stabilized whipped cream (see recipe below) or 1 cup heavy cream whipped and sweetened slightly
  • 1 Dove Dark Chocolate Promise, refrigerated; or chocolate sprinkles; or toasted coconut


  1. In a heavy medium saucepan, whisk together sugar, cornstarch, and salt.
  2. In a separate bowl or large measuring cup, whisk milk and egg yolks until combined. Pour milk mixture into pan while whisking. Whisk until smooth.
  3. Place pan on burner set to medium heat and cook, whisking constantly (yes, constantly), making sure to scrape bottom and edges of the pan, until mixture starts to thicken, about 7-9 minutes.
  4. Remove from heat and immediately whisk in chocolate, butter, and vanilla. Transfer hot filling to a bowl. Cover with plastic wrap so that the wrap rests in contact with the filling so a skin does not form. Refrigerate filling until cool, 1-2 hours.
  5. Once filling and crusts are cool, spoon filling into a pastry bag fitted with a star tip or a quart or gallon size zip top bag. If you're using the zip top bag, once it's got the filling in it, cut about a half-inch or a little less off one corner. Also place whipped cream into pastry or zip top bags, preferably fitted with a star tip, but that's not absolutely necessary.
  6. Squeeze about 1 to 1½ teaspoons of filling onto each little crust. Then top with about a teaspoon of whipped cream. Top it all off with sprinkles, grated chocolate, or toasted coconut. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve.

Note : Makes 65 bites.
