I present to you, Marcela’s Strawberry Chocolate Pie! It is a delicious dessert to fill anyone’s chocolate craving. It is sweet from the chocolate however the strawberries evens it out and the nice pie crust makes it a nice balanced dessert.

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups of Graham Crackers crumbs
  • 3/4 cup of room temperature margarine
  • 1 box of fresh strawberries
  • 300g chocolate melted
  • 4 eggs, divided
  • 2 cups of heavy cream
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1 tbsp corn starch
  • 1 1/2 cups icing sugar
  • 4 tbsp of lime juice

Method

Step 1

Making the Pie Crust: Combine the crackers crumbs with the margarine, and mix it with your hands until it become a ball of dough. If you notice the dough being too flaky, you can add and extra half or a full tablespoon of margarine.

Step 2

Once mixed well, place it in a large (12") and tall pie pan with removable bottom for easy removal

Step 3

Starting from the bottom of the pan, press the dough with your fingers till it covers all the corners of the pan, then start to gently pull the pie dough over to the sides of the pan

Step 4

After all the dough is placed, you should have about 2 to 3 inches of crust on the sides, that are about 5mm thick

Step 5

Now with a fork, make holes in the entire dough at about half an inch apart, including the corners and sides of it. This allow the dough to breath in the oven and avoid those bubbles, so be generous

Step 6

Once everything is ready, preheat your oven at 356F or 180C and bake the pie crust for 10 to 15 minutes or till the edges start to become slightly golden. Once it is done take it out of the oven and let it cool down.

Step 7

Custard Filling: Place your chocolate bowl inside a large pot filled with water and cook it in a medium heat till your chocolate is completely melted. If you are using a small bowl please be careful to not let the water in your bowl

Step 8

In a bowl mix a half cup of milk, heavy cream and cornstarch until dissolved

Step 9

Grab a separate bowl slightly beat the egg yolks

Step 10

In a large bowl, add in all the mixtures you made excluding the melted chocolate and start cooking it in low heat, mix well with a whisk during the entire process

Step 11

Once your mixture is hot, you can add the melted chocolate and keep mixing on medium heat until the consistency is like thick cream. It should take about 30 to 40 minutes

Step 12

Once you have hit the right consistency, let it cool down for 10 minutes and pour over the pie crust. Set it aside and let it cool down completely.

Step 13

Icing: In a mixer, add the egg whites and the lime juice and beat at medium speed till it becomes thick fluffy cream (should be about 15 minutes)

Step 14

While you are still mixing, stiff the icing sugar and add it slowly to the mixture

Step 15

Lastly add a total of 2 tablespoon of hot water in the mixture but add them one tablespoon at a time with at least 30 seconds gap

Step 16

Once that is complete you may now cover the pie with the icing using a spatula or a icing bag and put it in the fridge for at least 3 hours before serving
