Party Recipes and Ideas is not a gourmet, boutique cookery website. We're caterers trying to help folks do their own catering for large numbers of people. The idea is how to do something well, quickly, which winds up looking and tasting great. And - all the while - doing lots of it, along with the rest of your menu. So recipes like this one keep things simple and get it done - really well!

Honestly, professional caterers seldom make pie crust from scratch. Read about how we do it, and how you can save lots of time too:Caterer’s Pie Secrets gives you lots of ideas, especially for larger parties.

Remember that good baking is more like careful chemistry. Measure your ingredients, avoid substitutions, and use ASK-a-CATERER for free party recipes and ideas.

Read about Party Food Quantities to plan for more or less.


1 - 9/10 inch pie crust, baked
2 cup milk
splash of vanilla extract
24 ounces of semi-sweet chocolate chips


Use a double boiler, or put a heat-proof mixing bowl over a medium saucepan with boiling water on the stove.

Heat the milk and chocolate chips until smooth and creamy. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla.

Pour into the baked pie crust and refrigerate overnight.

Top with whipped cream, shaved chocolate, fruit, nuts, etc to have the smoothest, simplest pie ever.

Try white chocolate chips for something completely different. Also, use a splash of various flavored liqueurs instead of the vanilla - we love Frangelico.
