Doubly delicious with chocolate in both the crust and filling, refreshing slices of silky pie satisfy a sweet a tooth.

Ingredients

Crust

1 1/4
cups chocolate cookie crumbs
1/4
cup butter or margarine, melted

Filling

1
bag (12 oz) semisweet chocolate chips (2 cups)
1/2
pint (1 cup) whipping cream
1
teaspoon vanilla
2
egg yolks

Topping

1/2
cup whipping cream
1
tablespoon powdered sugar
Unsweetened baking cocoa, if desired

Directions

  • 1 In small bowl, mix cookie crumbs and butter. In ungreased 9-inch glass pie plate, press crumb mixture in bottom and 1 inch up side.
  • 2 In double boiler set over hot simmering water, heat chocolate chips 2 to 3 minutes, stirring frequently, until melted and smooth. Gradually add 1 cup whipping cream, stirring constantly, until combined. Stir in vanilla and egg yolks until well blended. Cook over medium-low heat 5 to 6 minutes, stirring frequently, until thickened and hot. Pour filling into crust. Refrigerate at least 3 hours or until firm.
  • 3 In medium bowl, beat 1/2 cup whipping cream and the powdered sugar with electric mixer on high speed 1 to 2 minutes or until soft peaks form. Top individual servings with whipped cream. Dust with cocoa.

Expert Tips

To evenly press the crumb mixture into the pie plate, use the bottom of a dry measuring cup.

Don't own a double boiler? Place a small saucepan in a larger skillet or saucepan filled with 1 to 2 inches of simmering water.
