    It says to mix sugar cornstarch & salt in one bowl then mix egg yolks cornstarch & milk in another bowl. So does the cornstarch go with the sugar or milk?

    Is it possible to use a lighter chocolate rather than dark? I am not a fan of dark chocolate.

    Hi Kristine, In the bowl there should only be egg yolks and milk. I have updated the instructions. Sorry.

    Hi Kathy, I have never tried it but I don’t see why it wouldn’t work. If you try it please let everyone know how it turns out. Thanks!

    I have made this pie for at least 30 years. I have used Milk Chocolate chips (my favorite),Semi-sweet , (husbands favorite) and the White Chocolate chips. They all work very well. It’s just a matter of preference.
