CHOCOLATE SILK PIE

Have you ever had a cream pie dessert that, was (not only) outrageously delicious, but the  "mouth feel" was absolutely sublime? That is the perfect description for this chocolate silk pie; it is the smoothest, creamiest, chocolate filling we have ever eaten!!

 


 
 
CHOCOLATE SILK FILLING

2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
2 cups heavy whipping cream (divided)
2 tablespoons powdered sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
8 ounces cream cheese (room temperature)

In a small microwave bowl, mix the chocolate chips and 1/2 cup of the cream. Heat on 50% power for about 2 minutes, then stir. If they aren't completely melted and smooth, continue microwaving on 50% power (30 seconds at a time), stirring each time.  My microwave oven took the initial 2 minutes plus about 20 more seconds. COOL MELTED CHOCOLATE FOR 20 MINUTES BEFORE USING!!

In a different bowl, mix the remaining 1½ cups of whipping cream, powdered sugar and vanilla. Beat on high until stiff peaks form, set aside.

In another large bowl, beat the cream cheese until fluffy, gradually mix in the melted chocolate mixture, beating until very smooth.  Gently fold in the whipped cream with a rubber spatula. Do this slowly so you don't deflate the air in the whipped cream..

Fill your favorite pre-baked pie crust with the filling, smooth the top and chill at least 4 to 6 hours (better overnight).
 
 
This recipe overfills a 9" pie
or is perfect for a  10" pie
 
Top with whipped cream and enjoy!!
