Chocolate Cream Pie

The best ever chocolate cream pie recipe from my mom. You will go back for another slice!

1/3 cup Hershey's Cocoa
1/3 cup cornstarch
1 1/4 cup sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
3 cups whole milk
3 T. butter
1 tsp. vanilla

Combine cocoa, sugar, cornstarch and salt in medium saucepan. Add milk and blend until smooth. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly. Bring to a soft boil and continue cooking for 3 minutes. Remove from heat, blend in butter and vanilla, and pour into a pie shell. Cover with plastic wrap, pressing onto surface. Refrigerate for 3-4 hours. Serve with whipped cream.

*For a variation, whip 1 cup heavy whipping cream and 2 T. sugar. Set aside. In another bowl, combine 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream (un-whipped) and 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter. Whisk until smooth. Add reserved whipped cream; gently fold in with a rubber spatula until combined. Spread over chocolate pie and serve.
