A very rich pie made with chocolate chips and walnuts.
I LOVE this recipe...I've made this the last 3 Thanksgivings (and also to impress a cute boy...totally worked) and it has gotten rave reviews. I'm not a huge pie person, but I LOVED this. It is so rich and delicious. I changed a few things - I omitted the nuts and 1/4 c. butter and used a large-sized graham cracker crust (because I hate pastry crust.) TIP: Many people complain that the chips sink to the bottom. With about 20 minutes left to cook, I just dropped about 20-30 additional chocolate chips on top of the pie. These didn't sink and made it look like a giant chocolate-chip cookie. Way cute...Read More

Since I don't like chocolate much, I can only base this on my husband's reaction. He LOVED it! He claims it is one of the best pies he has ever eaten!! I was very skeptical as it was cooking, because it took about fifteen minutes longer than the recipe called for, and it looked strange when it came out of the oven (very shiny and smooth, and an odd tan color--not what I was expecting). It actually created a layer pie--the chocolate sunk to the bottom, and created a chewy layer over the top. Based on my husband's reaction, I think I'll have to make this pie again and again!!
My niece was raving about a Tollhouse Chocolate chip pie she had when on vacation this year. We decided to look for a recipe and try.. after reading the many reviews we settled on this one. Jasmine Decided this was this was the best she's tasted. We had the caramel sauce on the warm pie with vanilla Ice cream!
Wow! The word of the night on Thanksgiving was "sinful" (honestly - about 4 people used that same word!)I bought crusts that came in a 2-pack to make Pumpkin Pie, thus had 1 crust left over. Pulled up good 'ol Allrecipes to see if there was something I could make with what I already had on hand and voila! This was the hit of the night and embarassingly EASY! I will use a deep dish pie shell next time (the contents oozed over onto the roasting pan in the oven) and I used mostly milk chocolate chips, with some semi-sweet; used pecans instead of walnuts based on what was on hand - my favorite pie now! Thanks for the submission!
This pie is just fantastic. So rich and delicious will definitely be one I will be making again!
This pie got raves at our local Pie Auction.... I had many phone calls for the recipe! It did overflow a bit in the oven, next time I'll put a cookie sheet under it!
Great recipe! I used pecans since I didnt have walnuts and only used 1/2 a cup. A whole cup would have been too much, for my tastes anyway. I could not get enough of this.
If you've ever had chocolate chip cookie pie, you would know that this is SUPPOSED to be a gooey pie! It is not supposed to be like a giant/thick cookie in a pie shell...it's gooey rich sweet decadence in a pie shell! That being said, I omit the nuts, usually cut down a bit on the butter and add a teeny bit of salt. Perfection.
I made this the other day and it was awful. I followed the directions exactly but after 1 hour and 30min. it was still not cook inside. I don't know what happened but very dissappointed.
I made this pie for Thanksgiving and it was a big hit. Everyone went nuts over this pie. I did not use nuts, because I dont like them. And yes the chocolate chips did sink to the bottom, but it still tasted great. Can't wait to make it again.
It's good and easy to make; I went by suggestions of others and used a graham cracker crust and deeper pie dish. It has too much butter. It was bubbling up at the sides; I poured some of it out by tilting the dish. If taking to parties, it's easier to just make chocolate chip cookies.
Just like a big chocolate chip cookie with a smoother texture. Very rich and very good. It was best warm with vanilla ice cream. All of my chocolate chips sank to the bottom of the pie. I'm not sure if there is any way to avoid that though. Still tasted great.
Very good! I believe some of the reviewers here are mistaken when they say that when you take it out it's not done. The thing is, although it's gooey, it's definitely done. The filling of pie's are usually gooey. But it definitely tasted better after refrigerating it. The gooey filling is hardened and it tastes like a delicious brownie-like dessert.
This is a terrific recipe for Kentucky Derby Pie - top it with ice cream for a sweet treat or eat it by itself :)
Really good. It is a lot like chocolate chip cookies, as other reviews say, but as far as I'm concerned, you can't go wrong with that.
Very simple and delicious! The chocolate does sink but the top layer come out crispy while the inside was a very chocolatey and pie-like, making it very tastey (I didn't have to cook it any longer than 55 minutes). I only added about 3 1/2 TBS. of butter and suggest to stick with the semi-sweet choc. chips so the pie isn't overwhelmingly sweet. Very good recipe and SO EASY! (Also, I used homemade pie crust without sugar, just flour shortening and water, which served as a great balance for the sweet inside and made it more cookie like)
This was very good especially with ice cream!!!!!! YUM YUM Very easy to make if needed at the last minute and tastes like you spent hours!
I needed something to whip up in a hurry, and this was definitely easy. It was a little too intense for my taste (very sweet and chocolate was pretty gooey), but I enjoyed it a bit more the next morning after it sat in the fridge and hardened.
This is the same recipe as "toll house" pie just 1/3 less butter. It is such a great tasting pie! We used to make it at a restaurant I worked at. I always thought the toll house pie was slightly greasy, and thought the butter could be cut back, so this would be perfect. For that pie though I do use a deep dish pie shell, but a regular shell might work here as it has a little less butter.
This pie was better than that served at a local upscale cafe. I did cut the butter in half like other reviewers suggested. I also added a half cup of coconut flakes. It was delectable and I will certainly be making it again soon. Thanks for such an awesome recipe.
This is a very good recipe! I have made it time and time again. I usually use pecans and I only use about a 1/2 cup of butter...it turns out perfect every time. This is one of my favorites!
This is a good recipe but next time I think I will make mine in a bigger dish to make it a little thinner, my top got done way before the middle was cooked. It still tasted great once it was finished though!
Anything that tastes like a warm chocolate cookie is fine by me! This pie was really easy and really good, especially with some vanilla ice cream on top. Will make this again for sure!
Excellent! My family loved it. For variety, I tried it with a little shredded coconut mixed into the batter.
This was a terrific pie. I made it for this last Thanksgiving's dinner and I had 28 family members over. THEY LOVED IT. I am only 12 and it was easy for me to make.
Awesome! A MUST try!! Everyone loved this pie!!
I used a store bought graham cracker crust and it tasted great. I used the larger size crust since I read that the filling overflowed in the oven - it worked out perfect.
I was asked to do a chocolate chip pie, and this is the recipe i decided to use because it had a good rating. The guy was very pleased with it, so it is a keeper. Thank you
I scaled this recipe down and used an individual pie crust. I also added caramel bits.
This pie is sooo good! Its like a big gooey cookie!!
you might as well eat a cookie
Very good. I took it out too early but everyone still loved it. Will Make it again.
I saw a chocolate chip pie at a restaurant recently that looked so good that I knew I'd have to fine the recipe. This pie was a cinch to put together and Oh so good!
I changed the crust to graham cracker and only added 2/3 cup of chocolate chips. Big hit with everyone.
SOOO good and SOOO easy! Smaller than average slices are enough but who would really want to stop there? Once again, I didn't have all the ingredients I thought I did and made the following substitutions: maple extract for the vanilla and 1/4 c. butterscotch chips for 1/4 c. of the chocolate. Can't wait to try it with the original ingredients and ice cream!
Thank you so much. I have been looking for this recipe for the longest. I baked one and took it to work, and everyone loved it.
I have always made this pie with pecans and a little flaked coconut. Great!
I love this pie! It is so easy to put together (especially if you cheat and use a store bought crust) and it tastes great. I made it once with the nuts but after the first time I leave them out (we don't like nuts) and don't miss them a bit! My favorite is to serve this warm and have some good vanilla ice cream on hand but it tastes great cooled too.
I LOVED IT !!!!! the only this i will change is if u dont want them to sink put HALF in the mix and after it has baked for 40 minutes add the rest ...... yum yum will use this recipe again and again !
Just made this for Christmas. Most people reviewing this recipe said it was "sinful", everyone at my table said it was "ridiculous." It is wonderful in small amounts. This is not an everyday dessert because it is soooo rich but it is very, very good. It was gone before the pumpkin and pecan pie. Thanks for the recipe.
I searched a lot of different sources on the web for a Chocolate Chip Pie recipe, but I still came back to this one. I'M GLAD I DID! It was so easy to fix, and just what I was hoping to find in a wonderfully tasty pie! I fixed this pie for the Choco-holics in the family...we all loved it! I'll be making this again, and I'm emailing the recipe to family members who raved about it, too!
This reminds me of a fudge pie which is also on this site. It pretty much tasted like a brownie in a pie crust and this is just like a chocolate chip cookie in a pie crust. I don't really get the point unless you get a kick out of eating things in pie form. Good but nothing really to it.
My daughter LOVED this pie. SHe loves chocolate chips and is usually a finicky pie eater. Thanks for the recipe!
This recipe has too much butter. It tastes and looks greasy! Butter should be probably cut in half.
Very good, but way way too much butter. Next time I would only use 1/4 to 1/2 cup butter
Sorry, but we did not enjoy this. Just can't put my finger on what was wrong, but it didn't seem like a good combination of ingredients. I really wanted to like it!
it was delicious my absolute favorite
Tastes like a big cookie in a pie. I only added 1 stick of butter. Also, when pie was done, I added addtl choc chips to the top and spread out like frosting. Only bad thing is the chips seems to settle at the bottom during baking. Anyway - big hit!
This was good, but MUCH too rich for us. We ended up throwing out some of the leftovers.. it was just too sweet. :(
Very yummy. I didn't have chocolate chips so I used butterscotch chips. It was soooo good. You don't need a very big piece so one pie goes a long way.
Excellent pie! Very decadent!
Easy, qucik to make and tasty.
Where I'm from we call this a Derby Pie. Ooie gooieness on a crust.
This pie was awesome!! Good warm or cold the next day...with or without vanilla icecream. And it was simple enough for my two kids to help out making it! YUM!
Delicious! Family loved it. The only change I made was the BUTTER. Listened to another viewer and cut the butter down to stick and a half. Next time, will use a graham cracker crust and milk chocolate chips.
My pie never cooked either. After 2 hours, it was still so gooey that it wouldn't hold shape when cut. I followed the directions exactly, I can't figure it out. So dissapointed.
Serve with hot carmel sauce over the hot pie and ice cream - sinfully good.
I can't bake at all ! but this came out great was gone in one hr
If you're after a chocolately pie, this one fits the bill. I used about 1/2 cup of butter which was plenty. Be sure you bring the eggs to room temperature prior to making this. This is a special treat with vanilla ice cream. You're going to love this one!
I made this for a family gathering and everyone loved it! It is delicious and moist and really good with whipped cream.
This recipe, although tasty, is far too rich and chocolatey to make often. Don't make it unless you REALLY like chocolate.
This was easy and yummy. I took it to a family dinner and it was gobbled up. Thanks for the recipe!
Really really good. My mom and dad could not stop asking me to make another one. The only thing i changed in the recipe was i only used a 1/2 cup of butter. I also topped the slices with vanilla bean ice cream. Soooo good
This recipe has waaaay too much butter in it. I think it should probably read 1 STICK of butter, not 1 CUP. Mine was a gooey, soupy mess that went into the garbage. What a waste of ingredients, very disappointing.
This is a family favorite that a friend in England made for us the first time 12 years ago. The key to success in this pie is to beat the eggs for at least 2 minutes before adding the rest of the ingredients. Otherwise the pie separates.
this is good (good enough to rate well!), but when they say rich, they mean it. this is so rich, in fact, we probably won't finish it ourselves, and it will get passed on to the boys who work with my husband. likewise, i probably won't make it again any time soon ... but only because it's just too much, which isn't always a bad thing! i used about 1/2 cup more chocolate chips, and no nuts, just because i didn't have any. had to cook it an extra few minutes, too, but that's just my oven. i'd omit most of the salt, as well.
I thought this was great! Like a big gooey chocolate chip cookie. I just made it in the pie plate without a crust. I also reduced the butter to 3/4 cup and added 1/2 teaspoon salt. Perfect! :)
LOVE this pie. Keep in mind, it is a pie, not a cookie. Do not expect the center to be the consistency of a cookie. Make sure butter is at room temp.
This turned out great! We loved it! After the first 25 minutes I sprinkled additional chocolate chips on the top since most of them did seem sink to the bottom. This was amazing hot & it was just as good the next day when it was cold.
As stated by some others, this is also called 'Derby Pie' and made for the Kentucky Derby. I grew up eating this each May, except I was never a fan of the walnuts. Because of this, I made a substitution for my non-nut liking family. I added Chocolate Chunk pieces instead. YUM! I did not have any trouble with the pie being underdone. Yes, the butter is bubbling under the crust when I took it out after an hour, and I luckily took the advice of others by placing foil on the rack below the pie to collect any spills. I placed the pie on a cookie sheet after taking it from the oven and allowed it to cool for 2 hours. The pie was gooey, but not falling to pieces or raw! We loved it.
My niece Raves about this recipe. She had a tollhouse chocolate chip pie on the vineyard.. and thinks this one is even better..will make it again..
Good, but not great - there are better "kentucky / derby pie" type recipes on the site. This one turned out like a big, unbalanced chocolate chip cookie, with all the chocolate on the bottom and a bland, soft cookie on top. Used walnuts, but suspect that pecans would have added some needed richness.
My family enjoyed this.
This pie is so rich and delicious! I made it for a Christmas party and everyone loved it.
My changes were to only use 1/2 cup of butter, 1/2 t vanilla (I'm not a huge fan of vanilla and using half ended up being a good decision!), leave out the nuts (we don't like them), and 1/8 teaspoon salt. I read a bunch of the reviews first and made sure to beat my eggs for about 3 minutes in my mixer, and added my melted butter when it was warm rather than hot. Then I checked the temperature of the batter before adding the chocolate chips to make sure it wasn't warm enough to melt them. I read that the chips sink to the bottom of the pie, so used 3/4 cup regular chocolate chips and 1/4 cup minis because I thought maybe the minis wouldn't sink. Turns out they'll sink no matter what size they are! 40 minutes after putting the pie in the oven, I sprinkled the top with another handful of chocolate chips. My pie was actually done after 50 minutes. I stuck a toothpick in the center and it came out mostly clean. The pie is wonderful- it's just like eating a soft, gooey, fresh from the oven cookie. Even when it cools and firms up, the texture is still like that! Awesome!
I left out the walnuts and added peanuts instead, and I added a crumb topping. Everyone raved over this recipe! It is very rich...small slices are best.
This pie was great!! I followed some of the other reviewer suggestions and only used 3/4 cup butter and a deep dish pie pan. Really simple to make as I used store bought pie crust. I also sprinkled a handful of chips on top with about 15 min baking time left. Definitely will make this one again!! Oh I also didn't use any nuts this time but I'm sure it will be great with either pecans or walnuts!
This was okay but not as good as I expected with all the rave reviews. I followed the directions exactly except I used a graham cracker crust (extra serving size) and used pecans rather than walnuts. I served it warm out of the oven. Everyone ate it, but no rave reviews. Don't know if I would make again.
This recipe was good. It had to be served warm and was best with some vanilla ice cream. It was very rich. I used a graham cracker crust. I might make it again for special occassions, but I'll probably stick with regular old chocolate chip cookies most the time.
I brought this to a friends house for a picnic. As soon as I put it on the dessert table, it was cut and gone. People were raving about it. Simple to make, great tasting. Will definately keep this one in my recipe box. Thanks!!
This is a very good pie with a consistency like a buttermilk pie, which was a pleasant surprise. I'm glad I waited a couple days to rate it though. I did not like it right out of the oven. It tasted better to me after it sat a day. It also took almost 2 full hours to bake, which was annoying. Next time I'll cut the butter in half as suggested by others. Update: I have now made this twice more. The 2nd time I made it I used 1/2 cup butter and it didn't taste right. This last time I used 3/4 cup butter and it was perfect! Success! And it only took 50 minutes to bake!
So good! Only change I made was to reduce butter to 3/4 c. Just like a ooey gooey chocolate chip cookie fresh out of the oven. Great with ice cream too.
Just made this last night for a small party. It was a hit with everyone. My husband already asked me to make it again! I followed the recipes except I used a grahm cracker crust, and I used extra chocolate chips and about 20 min before it was finished baking I sprinkle butterscotch chips over the top. That way there were chips at the top of the pie. Next I will add even more chips as that was hubby's only criticism.
This pie is excellent!! Probably my favorite pie recipe now! Good job Mirelle!
Delicous! I cover the crust with tinfoil and bake it at 325. Turns out perfect!
Really delicious and so easy.
My family loves this pie. Everytime we have a family get together someone asks me to bring it. It is very rich but if you like that it is amazing.
I'm so disappointed to only give this recipe two stars. I followed the recipe exactly. It's been about two hours and the inside is still not done!!! The top has been done for quite some time, but the inside just isn't baking. I don't know what happened. :(
Quick! Delicious! I used 2/3 c Smart Balance in place of butter and never missed any flavor. Will DEFINITELY make this again! Thank you!
This recipe is so good! I love how the top gets harder like a cookie but the middle stays soft and gooey. Instead of a traditional crust, I subbed an Oreo crust and it made quite a difference! So so good!!!
I made it just as it was written...delicious! Yes, the chocolate chips sink to the bottom but that's okay...it looked like I layered it that way on purpose! It looks impressive and tasted better...but very very rich! You need coffee or a big glass of milk for this one.
Loved it esp with vanilla ice cream and some caramel ice cream topping.
This was simple to make and tasted really good with a little vanilla ice cream on top. I definitely will make this again!
Sooo easy, made it 4 my bud's birthday and made him take it home, along with the fresh whipped cream. He could never understand why I make sweets from scratch-he's a believer now...
This is a great dessert. Easy to make and always a crowd pleaser!!!!!
This pie is the best! I omit the nuts and use dark brown sugar. It's best eaten slightly warm. I sell pies, and this is one of my customers' favorites.
The ONLY change I made was reducing the butter to 1 stick instead of 2. It turned out to be a gooey mess - the pie fell completely while cooling - when I cut it, it was just a mess - crunchy on top and a gooey mess on the inside!
Delicious! Made as-is.
This tastes better than traditional derby pie!
