  • Part 1:

  • Add sugar, 1/4 cup at a time.
  • Continue to beat until light and fluffy about 4 minutes.
  • Scrape bowl often.
  • It must be mixed long enough so it is not gritty.
  • Slowly add the melted chocolate to the butter mixture, beating on medium speed until the chocolate is blended and mixture is smooth.
  • At medium speed add eggs one at a time, beating after each one before adding the next egg.
  • Add vanilla and mix again.
  • Spread into pie crust (regular or graham cracker).
  • Part 2:
  • In large mixing bowl, beat cream until it is light and fluffy and looks like soft whipped cream. Do NOT let it get to butter stage.

  • Refrigerate pie and any leftovers.

    My family loved this pie but were concerned with the raw eggs. Can a pasteurized egg substitute replace the eggs in the recipe?

    The only thing sweet that my kids eat is French Silk Chocolate Pie. (I'm not sure they are related to me.) You have just made them happy. They just don't know it yet. L.

    Just what I was looking for! Thank you for bringing this to my attention. I can assure you there's no competition to how beautifully your pie is decorated coming from me. I'll go with spooning the whipped cream on top and adorning generously with the shaved chocolate curls. Mmmmm.
