First of all - delicious! Thank you so much for sharing. I made a few changes based on previous reviews. I used 4 yolks, 1/4 cup cornstarch (which is 4 Tbsp), and I added 1 Tbsp of coffee because it was morning and I had it. The biggest change I made is I made this in the microwave! It is so easy - don't be scared to try it. (got the idea from a review of coconut cream pie on this site). I followed the directions but mixed everything in a microwave safe bowl. Once it was time to cook it, I put it in the microwave for 1 minute increments, whisking after each. I repeated the process until the filling thickened (about 12 minutes for me, but I have a small microwave - should be 8-10). This is much easier than standing at the stove constantly stirring. For my topping, I made my own whipped cream but I stablized it so it'd last longer. I sprinkled 1 tsp unflavored gelatin over 1 Tbsp cold water. Microwaved it for 30 seconds. Meanwhile, I poured 1 pint of whipping cream into bowl of mixer. Whipped starting at low moving gradually to high speed. Added gelatin, 1 tsp vanilla, and 3 Tbsp powdered sugar. Whipped until cream held peaks. (Don't overwhip or the cream will curdle). Best chocolate cream pie ever (and so easy,too!).
