Minnie's Chocolate Pie from the Help

“I saw the movie, The Help, this weekend and it was excellent. Then the sermon on Sunday included a reference to it. I wanted to have the recipe for Minnie's pie - NOT the one she made ONLY for Hilly!!!!!. Maybe someone else wants it, so here it is.”
1 pie

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 14 cups sugar
  • 3 12 tablespoons cocoa
  • 14 cup butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 5 ounces Pet milk (evaporated)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 pie crust, uncooked


  1. Preheat oven to 325°F.
  2. Mix everything together in one big bowl.
  3. You don’t have to bake the crust first, prick the bottom of it.
  4. Pour filling into crust.
  5. Bake for about 50 minutes. Let the pie set for a long while once it comes out of the oven. I think this definitely tastes better room temperature.
  6. If you’d like, serve with a big scoop of ice-cream, some fruit, a little whipped cream, or straight out of the pie plate!
