Ingredients
  

Dark Chocolate Truffle Pie

  • 14 Cream-O cookies filling removed
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter softened
  • 288 Grams dark chocolate chopped finely (we used 62-percent dark chocolate)
  • 1 Cup whipping cream Chilled
  • 60 Grams dark chocolate chopped finely (we used 62-percent dark chocolate)
  • 1/4 Cup whipping cream
  • 1 Cup whipping cream Chilled
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon confectioner's sugar sifted
  • 90 Grams chocolate bar for garnish (optional)

Instructions
 

  • Make the crust: Crush Cream-O cookies until fine in a food processor. (You can also place the cookies in a zip-top bag and use a rolling pin or mortar and pestle to crush them.) Combine crushed cookies and butter in a medium bowl. Stir until well combined. Press onto the bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch pie pan. Freeze for at least 30 minutes.
  • Make the mousse: place chocolate in a double boiler over low heat; stir until completely melted. Remove from heat and set aside at room temperature to cool, about 15 to 20 minutes.
  • In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, whip cream until soft peaks form. Fold gently into the cooled chocolate; pour into the prepared crust. Freeze for at least 1 hour.
  • Make the ganache topping: place chocolate and cream in a small microwaveable bowl. Microwave on medium heat for 10 seconds. Whisk until completely combined and pour into the center of the pie. Rotate the pie at a 45-degree angle to coat the surface of the whole pie. Refrigerate, covered, for at least 4 hours or overnight.
  • Make the whipped cream topping: In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, whip cream on medium-high speed until slightly thickened. Add vanilla, then gradually add confectioners’ sugar, whipping until soft peaks form.
  • If desired, make chocolate shavings by running a vegetable peeler against one side of the chocolate bar to make curls or rough shavings. Chill until ready to use.
  • To serve, slice pie into wedges, top each with a dollop of whipped cream and chocolate shavings.
