2/3 cup granulated sugar

6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted 

1/3 cup packed light brown sugar 

2 large eggs 

4 ounces semisweet or bittersweet chocolate, chopped and melted 

1/4 cup bourbon 

1 teaspoon vanilla extract 

2 tablespoons all-purpose flour 

2 tablespoons cocoa powder 

Pinch of kosher salt 

One 9-inch chocolate graham cracker crust

Whipped Cream:

2 cups heavy cream

1/4 cup confectioners' sugar 

2 tablespoons bourbon 

1 tablespoon vanilla extract or vanilla bean paste 

1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar 

Chocolate shavings, for garnish 


  1. For the pie: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, mix together the granulated sugar, butter and brown sugar with a mixer or a whisk. Beat in the eggs and mix until well incorporated, about 1 minute. Stir in the melted chocolate, bourbon and vanilla. In a small bowl, sift together the flour, cocoa and salt; fold the flour mixture into the egg mixture. Pour into the pie shell and bake until set, 30 to 40 minutes. Let cool to room temperature.
  3. For the whipped cream: In a stand mixer, whisk the heavy cream on medium speed until peaks begin to form. Add the confectioners' sugar, bourbon, vanilla and cream of tartar. Continue to whisk until the cream begins to hold medium firm peaks.
  4. Spread the whipped cream over the pie and garnish with chocolate shavings.
