Truffle Pie

Truffle Pie

Pin It    

 

The layers of chocolate in this pie are mind-boggling. We make it for dessert whenever we have chocoholics over. Remember to start making this the day before so the pie can firm up in the fridge.

Ingredients:

TRUFFLE FILLING:
2⁄3 cup heavy cream
6 ounces bittersweet chocolate chips
1 9-inch prepared graham cracker crust

WHIPPED CHOCOLATE FILLING:
6 ounces bittersweet chocolate chips
1 1⁄2 cups heavy cream
1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla

WHIPPED CREAM TOPPING:
1 cup heavy cream
1⁄4 cup confectioners’ (powdered) sugar

GARNISH:
1 1⁄2 ounces milk chocolate
1 1⁄2 ounces white chocolate
1 1⁄2 ounces semisweet or dark chocolate

Instructions:

For the truffle filling, in a saucepan, bring 2⁄3 cup cream to a simmer. Place the 6 ounces chocolate chips in a bowl and pour the hot cream over the chocolate. Let stand for 1 minute, then gently whisk until smooth. Spread truffle filling over the bottom of the prepared piecrust. Freeze for 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, for the whipped chocolate filling, in a double boiler or a microwave set on low power, heat the 6 ounces chocolate chips with 1⁄2 cup of the cream until the chocolate is just melted, stirring often. Let cool to room temperature. In a chilled bowl, beat the remaining 1 cup cream until thick. Add the chocolate mixture and the vanilla and beat until soft peaks form (tips curl). Spread the whipped chocolate mixture over the truffle filing in the crust. Refrigerate overnight.

Just before serving, for the topping, beat 1 cup cream on medium speed of an electric mixer until it begins to thicken. Add confectioners’ sugar and whip until stiff peaks form (tips stand straight). Spread the whipped cream over the top of the pie. Using a grater or vegetable peeler, make pieces or shavings of milk chocolate, white chocolate, and semisweet or dark chocolate. Garnish pie with chocolate pieces. Serve immediately.
