Rich Chocolate Truffle Pie

I’m actually going to try this recipe this week and see if it’s good enough for Christmas. Well, I’ll get Sally to make it. The notes below the recipe say it’s got kind of a one-not flavor so I’m adding some expresso powder to it to give it depth. I have no idea how much though, that’s not included in the recipe so your mileage may vary.

Rich Chocolate Truffle Pie

Prep Time: 10 mins
Cook Time: 5 mins
Additional Time: 8 hrs
Total Time: 8 hrs 15 mins


12 ounces semisweet chocolate chips

1 ½ cups heavy whipping cream, divided

¼ cup sifted confectioners’ sugar

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

1 (9-inch) prepared chocolate cookie crumb crust


Gather all ingredients.

Combine chocolate chips and 1/2 of the cream in a microwave-safe dish; cook on high for 1 to 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds until smooth. Cool to room temperature. Stir in sugar and vanilla. Set aside.

Beat the remaining cream in a bowl with an electric mixer until soft peaks form.

Beat in chocolate mixture on high speed, 1/3 at a time.

Spoon chocolate cream into the crust.

Refrigerate for at least 8 hours before serving.

Slice and serve with a dollop of whipped cream.
