Chocolate Truffle Pie

I discovered a fast recipe for a delectable chocolate mousse some years ago and thought it might make a good filling for a pie. The chocolate lovers in our family endorse this scrumptious dessert, saying that it "melts in your mouth"! —Keri Scofield Lawson, Fullerton, California
  • Total Time
    Prep: 15 min. + chilling
  • Makes
    8-10 servings


  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1-1/2 cups heavy whipping cream, whipped, divided
  • 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 chocolate crumb crust (9 inches)
  • Whipped cream and chocolate-covered peppermint candies, optional


  • In a microwave-safe dish, combine the chocolate chips and 1/2 cup of cream; cook on high for 1-2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds until smooth. Cool to room temperature.
  • Stir in sugar and vanilla; set aside. In a small bowl, beat remaining cream until soft peaks form. Beat in chocolate mixture on high, one third at a time; mix well. Spoon into crust. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours. Garnish with whipped cream and candies if desired.
Editor's Note
Chocolate crumb crust (9 inches): Combine 1-1/2 cups finely crushed chocolate wafers (about 30 wafers) and 1/3 cup melted butter. Press onto the bottom and up the sides of an ungreased 9-in. pie plate. Bake at 350 until set, 6-8 minutes. Cool on a wire rack before filling.

    Too chocolate rich. Did not even use all off the melted chocolate and cream and sugar mixture. If you really like dark chocolate you probably like this.

    Not quite sweet enough for me. Even after loading it up with whipped cream. If you like dark chocolate flavor this is the pie for you

    My 11-yr-old daughter was able to complete this recipe independently, which attests to its ease in preparation; but the chocolate flavor was a mite too intense for our family. Don't misunderstand- the texture was perfect and for a true chocoholic, you couldn't find a richer dessert. It just wasn't right for our family.

    I have made this more times than I can count! It is one of our favorite chocolate desserts! (We love to sprinkle extra crushed oreos on top!)

    This pie was easy, and amazingly delicious. I used Ghiardelli dark chocolate chips, which gave it a wonderful dark chocolate flavor. I will definitely be making this again.

    When I made this recipe recently from 1998 Taste Of Home Annual Recipes I ran out of vanilla extract. The recipe calls for one tablespoon of vanilla extract. I poured what I thought was another bottle of vanilla extract which I had in a tablespoon and it formed a cloudy precipitate. It was orange extract in a vanilla extract box! It added a whole new flavor! I estimated that I mixed one teaspoon of each instead of one tablespoon of vanilla extract.Marie Gelsomino, Stroudsburg, PA
