Ingredients: Graham Cracker Crust (from here)

1 and 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs (about 9 graham crackers)

1/4 cup brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

7 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

Chocolate Pie Filling  (from here)

1 can (12 ounces) evaporated milk

2 large egg yolks

2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

Mascarpone Whipped Cream

1 cup heavy whipping cream

1/2 cup mascarpone cheese

2 tablespoons sugar

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Recipe: Graham Cracker Crust

Preheat oven to 325F.

Crush the graham crackers in a food processor.

Stir graham cracker crumbs, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt together in a large bowl. Add melted butter and stir with a fork.

Bake crust for 8-10 minutes, or until it just starts to brown.

Chocolate Pie Filling

Whisk together evaporated milk and egg yolks in medium saucepan. Heat over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until mixture is very hot and thickens slightly; do not boil. Remove from heat and stir in the chocolate chips until completely melted and mixture is smooth.

Pour into crust and refrigerate for at least 3 hours before serving.

Mascarpone Whipped Cream

Beat all ingredients together until soft peaks form. Spread smoothly on pie.
