I’ve been wanting to make a chocolate silk pie for a while now, but never got the right opportunity to do it. As many of you know by now, my brother is allergic to eggs, so if I wanted to make a chocolate pie it wouldn’t be allowed to stay in the house, or else he’d get too tempted and eat some. So, I made this for a barbecue. It was deeeeelicious. Everyone there loved it. It’s simply a homemade recipe for chocolate pudding chilled inside a homemade pie crust. Plus, the whipped cream on top really makes it.
This pie looks impressive, but believe me it’s actually quite simple. If you take a bite that’s perfectly balanced with chocolate curls, whipped cream, chocolate pie, and pie crust, you’re in for a real treat. The whipped cream combined with the chocolate pie is so smooth it melts in your mouth. Then, you get to the buttery, flaky crust that gives it a nice crunch. They match perfectly and make this recipe oh so good.
This pie is perfect for chocolate lovers like me. Actually, I’m going to correct myself there. Addict, not lover. I probably eat chocolate in some way or another most every day of my life. My answer to the ever-so-annoying question, “If you could eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?” – Chocolate, of course (ice cream is a close second though). Therefore, one might start to see why I loved this pie so much.
Enjoy baking! Try not to eat the whole thing, because believe me, it will be a challenge.
