This French Silk Pie was so decadent and delicious! I used a store bought pie crust and made beautiful chocolate curls from a Hershey bar.
It’s a fabulous Friday at The Slow Roasted Italian and welcome to Diving Into Decadence.
Uncle Happy, our oldest and dearest friend celebrated his birthday with us a few weeks ago. He requested a French Silk Pie, so I researched and found an amazing recipe. This pie was so decadent and delicious! I used a store bought pie crust and made beautiful chocolate curls from a Hershey bar. It was amazing!!! So easy and impressive.

French Silk Pie
- 1 store bought pie crust, regular
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 ounces unsweetened chocolate
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1/3 cup butter, softened
- 2/3 cup heavy whipping cream
- 2 teaspoons confectioners’ sugar
- whipped cream and chocolate curls, optional
- Line pie shell with a double thickness of heavy-duty foil. Bake at 450° for 4 minutes. Remove foil; bake 2 minutes longer or until crust is golden brown. Cool on a wire rack.
- In a small saucepan, combine sugar and eggs until well blended. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until mixture reaches 160° and coats the back of a metal spoon.
- Remove from the heat. Stir in chocolate and vanilla until smooth. Cool to lukewarm (90°), stirring occasionally.
- In a small bowl, cream butter until light and fluffy. Add cooled chocolate mixture; beat on high speed for 5 minutes or until light and fluffy.
- In another large bowl, beat cream until it begins to thicken. Add confectioners’ sugar; beat until stiff peaks form. Fold into chocolate mixture.
- Pour into crust. Chill for at least 6 hours before serving. Garnish with whipped cream and chocolate curls if desired. Refrigerate leftovers.
