I had a craving for French silk chocolate pie, so I decided to come up with a recipe for one. My mom always made this pie when I was growing up, and hers was this perfectly dense texture and consistency. I tried to make mine a bit more fluffy and mousse-like and it turned out absolutely amazing. It’s so rich—so creamy, and at the same time super-light and fluffy.
If you like a more dense chocolate pie, you can just leave out the whipped cream. If, however, you love a divinely light and fluffy pie, just follow the recipe as is—it really is delicious.
Here are some things to help make this pie if your kitchen is missing them - check them out here:
- pie crust - 1, 9
- sugar - 1 cup
- butter - 1 cup, softened
- bittersweet chocolate chips - 3/4 cup, melted and cooled
- vanilla extract - 1 tsp
- eggs - 4
- heavy whipping cream - 1/2 cup
- powdered sugar - 2 tbsp
