On your pie plate, roll out your chilled pie dough and flute the edges. Cover the crust with parchment paper and fill it with pie weights.

Bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 minutes. Carefully remove it from the oven and cautiously lift out the parchment and pie weights.  Reduce the oven’s temperature to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Completely melt your chocolate and butter together until smooth. Combine the cream, eggs and yolks, sugar, and vanilla extract. Whisk the mixture vigorously for 15-30 seconds. Sift the cocoa powder into the egg mixture and add salt.

Gently stir the melted cocoa mixture into the egg mixture. Then, pour the mixture into your pie crust and bake for 25–30 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Carefully remove the pie from the oven and let it cool for around 4 hours.
