Chocolate Truffle Pie
This is the pie I made for my birthday. I had it for lunch andÂ dinner yesterday. And it was awesome.
It’s so not something I’d normally choose to make for myself. I’m a big fan of the grocery store cakes with the thick white buttercream but I’ve been dreaming about this pie for weeks now. It was time to make the dang pie.
I thought this was going to be very labor intensive – I mean, a name like Chocolate Truffle Pie just sounds intimidating, right? But it wasn’t at all. If you can melt chocolate in the microwave, you can make this pie. There is a lot of waiting around but the best things in life have to sit in the fridge overnight. Or something like that.
The pie is fantastic, as I’m sure you can imagine. It’s a graham cracker crust (my favorite!) with a chocolate truffle layer and then a chocolate mousse-ish layer. With whipped cream on top! It’sÂ super rich but it’s perfect for anyone with a deep love of chocolate. I do recommend using a chocolate you absolutely adore since it’s, well, pretty much the only ingredient.
Also, buy a massive container of heavy cream. I had to make two trips to the grocery store just for heavy cream the day I made this. And that, my friends, is not fun with 3 little people in tow.
