An intense chocolate craving sent me to the recipe file this week. I was hungry for something smooth, rich and full of chocolate.
I discovered this pie recipe that I had copied some time ago and never made. Since it didn’t need to be baked or even cooked, I knew I had a winner!
Chocolate Truffle Pie
Melt in microwave: 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips, 1/2 cup cream.
Cool to room temperature and add 1/4 cup powdered sugar and 1 Tbsp. vanilla.
Beat 1 cup of whipping cream until soft peaks form. Slowly fold in the cooled chocolate mixture.
Spoon into a chocolate cookie crust ( Mix 1 1/2 cup of Oreo cookie crumbs with 1/4 cup of melted butter. Press into bottom and sides of pie pan.) Refrigerate for at least 3 hours. Garnish with whipped cream.
I took a short cut and used Cool Whip for the whipped cream and it worked great!
It was just what I was craving, smooth, cool, creamy, rich and of course, full of chocolate! Yum!
