Servings 8 servings
- 1 9 inch "blind baked" pie shell I used a Marie Callender's frozen crust*
- 8 oz. semisweet baking chocolate I used Ghiradelli chocolate
- 2 cups heavy whipping cream
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup powdered sugar optional
- 2 cups cold milk
- 1 5.1 oz. package instant chocolate pudding
- chocolate shavings for garnish
For the filling, break baking chocolate into pieces into a bowl and melt slowly in the microwave, stirring every 20 seconds. Once melted 2/3rds of the way, continue to stir chocolate to melt the rest of the way. Set aside to cool.
In a large bowl, whip cream with vanilla and powdered sugar until stiff. Set aside.
In another large bowl using a hand mixer, whip milk with chocolate pudding mix until smooth. Sit 3 minutes to thicken. Whip in cooled melted chocolate. Scrape sides and mix again briefly. Fold in half of the whipped cream. Pour into cooled pie shell. Top with remaining whipped cream and chocolate shavings. Cover gently with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to serve.
*Bake pie crust according to package directions and cool completely before filling.
