Serious Chocolate: Easy Chocolate Pie Crust Recipe

I'm one of those people who always bought pie crusts at the store. Why spend all that time on the crust, I thought, when pies were all about the filling? The pie is called a peach pie, after all—not a graham cracker crust pie, with peach.

That was until I tasted (and tested) a few chocolate pie crusts. The crust alone becomes reason enough to eat the pie and blends seamlessly with the innards, making a cohesive treat you can serve at Thanksgiving (or you know, tonight.) Without further ado, the easiest chocolate crust recipe you will ever encounter.

Chocolate Pie Crust


  • 2 cups chocolate wafers or 2 cups chocolate graham crackers
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 stick of butter (6 tablespoons)


  1. 1.

    Melt the butter in the microwave

  2. 2.

    Place the chocolate wafers/graham crackers into a plastic bag. Close bag and crush with a spoon until you have tiny granular particles (about the size of a pea).

  3. 3.

    Combine the melted butter with the sugar and granulated chocolate particles.

  4. 4.

    Press ingredients into 9-inch buttered pie pan, making sure to cover all sides.

  5. 5.

    Bake for 10 minutes at 325°F.
