We managed to fit a whole bottle of wine in this decadent dark chocolate pie. Perfect for a grown-up dinner party, it offers the best of both worlds.




cups chocolate wafer cookie crumbs (from one 9-oz box)
stick (8 tbsp) unsalted butter, melted
tbsp sugar
Pinch of fine salt


cup cornstarch
1 ¼
cups plus 3 tbsp sugar
1 750-mL
bottle dry red wine
3 4-oz
bars bittersweet chocolate, chopped
tbsp unsalted butter
Pinch of fine salt
cups cold heavy cream
Chocolate curls or sprinkles, for topping, optional


Step 1

Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 325°F.

Step 2

Toss together the cookie crumbs, butter, sugar and salt in a medium bowl. Press into the bottom and sides of a 9-inch deep-dish pie pan. Bake until dry and set, 15 to 18 minutes. Let cool completely on a wire rack.

Step 3

Combine the cornstarch and 1 ¼ cups of the sugar in a medium saucepan and very slowly whisk in the wine to prevent lumps from forming. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until it has come to a simmer and is very thick, about 8 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the chocolate, butter and salt until smooth. Pour the filling into the cooled crust and refrigerate until chilled and set, about 4 hours and up to overnight.

Step 4

Right before serving, whip the cream with the remaining 3 tablespoons sugar in a large bowl with an electric mixer until soft peaks form. Top the pie with the whipped cream. Scatter the chocolate curls or sprinkles over the top, if using.
