Forgive me. This is the only picture I have of this recipe. Sorry folks. Think of a Chocolate Silk pie with whipped cream… drizzled with chocolate fudge sauce.
My dad loves the Chocolate Silk Pie from Village Inn. Here’s my version- only tastier and fresh- homemade with love. That’s the best kind of pie.
Chocolate Cream Pie
1-9″ pie shell, baked and cooled
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup heavy whipped cream
1 pint heavy cream, whipped until stiff peaks form
1/2 cup powdered sugar
Chocolate fudge sauce (garnish)
Heat 1 cup heavy cream until simmering- about 1 minutes in the microwave. Pour hot cream over the 1/2 cup chocolate chips. Let stand 2 minutes. Then stir together until the chocolate and cream combine- it will thicken. Let stand until it becomes room temperature, approx. 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, fold in the powdered sugar with the whipped cream. Then when the chocolate is cool, add to the whipped cream. Folding until combined. Do not over mix. Spread your chocolate mixture into your pie shell, spreading evenly. Top with more whipped cream and chocolate fudge sauce just before serving.
