Mix baking mix, sugar, unsweetened chocolate, butter and eggs, all together and this Impossible Chocolate Pie Recipe magically separates into delicious layers. Serve warm with ice cream for an easy delicious dessert.
I was poking around Pinterest and came across Impossible Pie. Turns out there are all kinds of Impossible Pie recipes so I chose the Impossible Chocolate Pie.
Impossible Chocolate Pie Recipe
If I researched it more, I’m pretty sure it all originated with Bisquick, but I’m sure you can use any baking mix.
I was intrigued by why it was called Impossible Chocolate Pie and read how it separates into layers. All the recipes looked simple enough and pretty much all the same, so I grabbed my ingredients and got busy.
The recipe I was following for Impossible Chocolate Pie had unsweetened chocolate bars, but if I were to make this again, I’d just use unsweetened cocoa. I haven’t tried it yet, so if you do and it doesn’t turn out, you can’t blame me. 🙂
The recipe called for mixing in a blender, but I’m sure an electric hand mixer would be fine too. I used my big daddy Ninja blender that has a wicked blade inside. I’m always looking for an excuse to use that thing and then always hand wash because I’m afraid of someone reaching into the dishwasher and not seeing it. This replays in my mind EVERY time I use the thing. It’s like the Ground Hogs Movie. But boy does it blend a good pink grapefruit margarita!
After you blend all the ingredients, you just pour it into a prepared pie plate.
I was skeptical. It just looked like a soupy mess. But I followed the directions and put it in the oven, just like that.
When I pulled it out, it looked more like a brownie and not very appetizing. It wasn’t until I cut into it, that I saw the layers!
The flavor will delight any dark chocolate lover. It would also be delicious with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. I just had whipped cream.
If I was serving it to a crowd, I may have covered the whole pie with whipped topping, after it cooled of course. But if you’re serving with ice cream, definitely serve warm!

I don’t see when to add the melted chocolate back to the recipe. The last thing I see of the chocolate is to melt it and set it aside, and it’s never mentioned again. Do I just add it to the other ingredients in the blender?
Add it in with all other ingredients when blending.
Been perusing Impossible Pie recipes, trying to pick one with the coconut to make today (it’s a rainy day, what else is there to do?). Chocolate of course caught my eye… going to make this now. The other recipes all call for twice that amount of eggs and milk, and are described as custardy- is this one firmer than a custard? That may be a good thing, my family is funny about textures.
Oh and I have to wonder how a little peanut butter would be added in… I might just experiment.
I would try it both ways. I was surprised by the consistency and also thought it would be less dense, but it was delicious!
Did you try it with peanut butter? If so, how did it turn out?
I haven’t not tried it with peanut butter, but now I think I need to try. I bet the peanut butter powder would work well, just mix it in with the bisquick. ??
