Chocolate Bar Pie

Pin It!

I’m thinking of starting a new blog.

The blog will be called: I love Chocolate Pies.

It’ll focus solely on variations of my Ultimate Chocolate Fudge Pie.

I’m pretty sure that chocolate pie is my favorite recipe on the entire blog. There’s just one problem: I love the pie so much that I keep making more and more, which caused me to completely run out of chocolate chips. So yesterday, I had to get creative. Luckily, there’s always some form of chocolate lurking in my pantry.

Searching for a chocolate-chip replacement, I found: Whole Foods’ mini dark chocolate chunks, an 88% chocolate Endangered Species chocolate bar, Ghirardelli 100% chocolate discs, and an Endangered Species chocolate-raspberry bar. So I threw all of these into my pie. Here’s a modified recipe:

Print This Recipe 5/5
5/51

Ingredients

  • 1 (12.3-oz) package silken or firm tofu (Mori-Nu is recommended for best taste)
  • 1 tsp cocoa powder
  • 2 1/2 chocolate bars, in the flavor of your choice (3-oz bars) (or 1 and 1/3c chocolate chips)
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp milk of choice
  • scant 1/8 tsp salt
  • 2-3 tbsp pure maple syrup, agave or other sweetener

Instructions

Break up the chocolate bars, and melt (either on the stove or in the microwave). Then throw everything into a food processor and blend until super-smooth. Pour into a pie crust if desired. (I hate pie crust and therefore usually keep it crustless.) Fridge until chilled. This gets firmer and firmer, the longer it sits. (It’s firmer if you use firm tofu and more like mousse pie if you use silken.) Have fun trying out different-flavored chocolate bars!

    I bet that Chocolate raspberry bar was delicious in there! Topped with some fresh raspberries too… Mmmmm deliciousness!!

    I have a dark chocolate bar + mini chocolate chips in my fridge. Need more!

  2. Lauren says:

    I have a chocolate board on Pinterest with a ton of your recipes! That way I can look at a whole bunch of chocolate at once.

    1. I have restrained myself from making a pintrest account… I could see myself wanting to be on there all day! LOL

  3. Oh yes- there is chocolate in my pantry. And, about 25 pound of chocolate in my 2nd bedroom! Most important though, are the 3 bars of chocolate in my purse 🙂

  4. Yum!!! I bet this would be great with a minty chocolate bar. Or PEANUT BUTTER!

  5. Nathalie says:

    Whole chocolate I tend to be lacking, but I always have a hefty supply of cocoa powder! I have at least two kinds sitting in my cabinet. Also the crust in the picture looks amazing!

  6. I love TJ’s 85% dark chocolate- their 72% is great too. Also have their unsweetened chocolate disks for baking which melt really easily. And of course a couple containers of cocoa. I can never find the hershey’s special dark though!

  7. There is always chocolate lurking… It doesn’t last too long… Except this block of white chocolate I found this week that had been there for a year. Probably some kind of record.

  8. Brittney says:

    Oh my goodness Katie, I made this recipe subbing the chocolate chips and with a chocolate crust last night! It’s almost like you read my mind! It was incredibly delicious 🙂

    1. I’m so excited you made it!!! 🙂 🙂

  9. Mellie says:

    We are out of chocolate chips too! It is a stinking HERESY. Fortunately we have baking chocolate, cocoa powder, and Nutella.

  10. I love how you improvised!! 🙂 That first picture reminds me of my mom’s chocolate cream pie – my fave dessert ever!! (followed by chili’s molten lava cake – again chocolate-y 😛 ) And that crust looks incredible! It looks just like the oreo crust my mom uses for her pie!

    And to answer the question, I ALWAYS have chocolate in my pantry! Baker’s unsweetened, chiradelli 60% chips, endangered species 88% (my fave!), and even some ginger chocolate! Plus some other random bars… one can never have too much chocolate 😉

    Love you!! <3 <3

    Guess I’m late getting around to reading today’s post.I’m new to your blog,and already I look forward to the e-mails everyday.I have Enjoy Life (I think that’s the brand,too lazy to go look)vegan chocolate chips,baking cocoa,and a partially used bar of Ghirardelli bittersweet baking chocolate.That’s on top of my ready-to-eat sweet stash (pb cups,choc. bars).Yes,I’m a choco fiend 🙂 BTW,do you have a single-serving recipe for a chocolate cupcake?I searched but didn’t find one.If you come up with a recipe,you’ll be my new best friend!Please & thank you!

    1. Oh my word, how could I not have a single chocolate cupcake recipe?! I need to get on that! Thanks for telling me :).

  12. Alexa @ Simple Eats says:

    Can I just say I love how this crust looks like it’s made out of Oreos, but it’s actually SO much healthier?! I also love the cream to crust ratio…more crust for me please!

  13. Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga says:

    Is there any chocolate lurking in your pantry? = Yes, just a wee bit 🙂

    The pie looks delish! I loved french silk pie as a kid and haven’t had it in years. I need to give your version a whirl. You know, I’ve never tried tofu in sweets. Need to change that it looks like 🙂

  14. BroccoliHut says:

    I have some chocolate chips lurking in my pantry…from which I periodically grab a handful 🙂

  15. Tina says:

    Oh yum!!! Do you have any ways/ideas of making this without soy?

    1. Hi Tina,

      Try this one: http://chocolatecoveredkatie.com/2011/03/07/you-gotta-try-this/
      (or the banana version)

      It is another chocolate fudge cake recipe. It’s not the same, but it’s just as good in its own right.

  16. Kathy says:

    Of course I have chocolate in my pantry! If I didn’t…well…then I wouldn’t be me! And some odd creature is lurking in me if I don’t have a chocolate fix everyday o.e…ooh that isn’t good. Haha!

  17. Patricia says:

    Holy Moly (is that a real term?) I made this tonight. It is FABULOUS. Rich, decadent and no one would ever suspect the tofu. Bless your chocolate covered heart for sharing this recipe. Love the blog and look forward to it everyday. Thanks!

    1. Thank you so much for trying it! And for such sweet words! Chocolate hugs 🙂 :).

  18. kaila @ healthy helper! says:

    Omg this looks incredible! It reminds me of the pudding pie in an oreo crust that my mom always makes!!! What kind of crust did you use?! It looks so yummy and crumbly!

    1. LOL there’s a reason it looks like an oreo crust… it IS an oreo crust! I hate crust, so I never bothered to develop my own recipe for one. This one was store-bought. But it is vegan, surprisingly enough!

  19. Marianne says:

    I may have just bought a couple of new chocolate bars at Whole Foods after school today to ensure my chocolate stash is well stocked.

  20. Robin says:

    I’ve actually run out of most all of my chocolate. Big shock, I know. This afternoon will be chocolate-hunting!
