French Silk Pie

This is one of the best Chocolate Pie recipes I have used. It has the perfect flavor and the perfect texture. If you are a chocolate lover like me, you will definitely need to add this to your collection! I received this recipe from an adopted grandma who I love dearly. She was an amazing cook and loved to share with everyone.


Graham Cracker Crust

2 c. Graham Cracker Crumbs

1/3 c. Sugar

5 Tbl. Melted Butter

Pie Filling

2 c. Heavy Whipping Cream

2 c. Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips

2/3 c. Salted Butter

2/3 c. Sugar

4 Egg Yolks

6 Tbl. Heavy Whipping Cream

Whipped Cream for topping


1. You can use any kind of pie crust for this recipe, but I prefer to use a Graham Cracker Crust. Make the crust by combining 2 c. Graham Cracker crumbs, 1/3 c. Sugar, and 5 Tbl. melted Butter. Press into the bottom of a deep-dish pie dish and bake at 375°F for 6-8 minutes. You could also substitute crushed Oreo crumbs and make a chocolate pie crust. Let cool.

2. In a saucepan, combine the 2 c. Whipping Cream, Chocolate Chips, Butter, and Sugar. Cook over a low heat, stirring constantly until the chocolate is melted. Remove it from the heat.

3. Separate the Egg Yolks. I like to simplify the next step by using a wire whisk and stirring the egg yolks into the chocolate mixture. If you stir quickly, then they will mix in well.

4. Continue to cook the egg yolks in the chocolate mixture, stirring constantly, until the mixture is starting to bubble. Then take it off the heat. This will take about 5 minutes.

5. Stir in the 6 Tbl. of Whipping Cream.

6. Place the saucepan in a container filled with ice water. The chocolate mixture will start to harden. Stir it occasionally until it is thick and difficult to stir. (This takes about 20-30 minutes.)

7. In a large mixing bowl, mix the chocolate mixture on high for 2-3 minutes or until it is light and fluffy.

8. Place the chocolate pie filling in your pie crust and cover and refrigerate for 3 hours. Top with Whipped cream and sprinkle with chocolate curls.

9. Serve and enjoy!
