Chocolate Crumb Crust:

  • 1 3/4 Cup Chocolate Wafer Crumbs
  • 1 Tablespoon Sugar
  • 7 Tablespoon Unsalted Butter Melted

Chocolate Rum Filling Layer:

  • 2/3 Cup Sugar
  • 1/4 Cup Cornstarch
  • 2 Tablespoons Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • Pinch Salt
  • 6 Large Egg Yolks
  • 2 Cups Lowfat Milk
  • 1/2 Cup Whipping Cream
  • 6 Ounces Bittersweet Chocolate Chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon Dark Rum
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract


  • 1 Cup Whipping Cream Chilled
  • 2 Tablespoons Powdered Sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon Dark Rum
  • Chocolate Curls


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray a 9-inch pie plate with nonstick cooking spray.
  •  In a medium bowl, thoroughly mix chocolate wafer crumbs, sugar, and melted butter.  Evenly press crumb mixture into prepared pie plate.  Bake crust for 8 minutes.  Cool on a wire rack.  Set aside.
  • Meanwhile, make the filling.  In heavy-bottomed, medium saucepan adds the sugar, cornstarch, cocoa, and salt and whisk until combined.  Add the egg yolks and mix in until the mixture forms a thick paste.  Gradually whisk in milk and then cream.  Turn on the heat and over medium to medium-high heat whisk until the mixture comes to a boil.  Cook at a boil 1 minute.  Remove the pan from heat and stir in chocolate. Stir until chocolate melts completely and the mixture is smooth.  Stir in Rum and vanilla. Cool 5 minutes then pour into prepared crust.  Refrigerate at least to an hour or preferably overnight.
  • Make topping when the pie has been refrigerated and is ready to serve. Beat whipping cream, powdered sugar, and rum in a large bowl until firm peaks form.  Spoon into a 1-quart ziplock or pastry bag fitted with a decorative tip.  Pipe stars or rosettes around the edge and in center of pie then add the chocolate curls. Serve.
