Chocolate Truffle Pie

Sunday Dinner has always been one of my favorite traditions! We all eat at my grandmas house until we’re beyond stuffed and get to laugh and have a good time 🙂 I decided to have dinner at my house this Sunday, and it couldn’t happen without dessert! I found this recipe on pinterest, http://www.thedeenbros.com

Ingredients:
1, 9-inch prepared graham-cracker crust
Truffle Filling-
6 oz. bittersweet chocolate chips
2/3 cup heavy cream

Whipped Chocolate Filling-
6 oz. bittersweet chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1/2 tsp. vanilla

Whipped Cream Topping-
1 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup confectioners sugar

Directions:
Start with the truffle filling.
In a saucepan bring the 2/3 cup of cream to a simmer.
Place 6 oz. of chocolate in a bowl, and once cream starts to bubble slightly, pour hot cream over chocolate.
Let stand 1 minute, and then whisk until combined.
Spread truffle filling over prepared pie crust and freeze for 20 minutes.
While that is freezing, prepare chocolate whipped topping.
Place a metal bowl in the freezer.
Heat 6 oz. chocolate with 1/2 cup cream in microwave for about 1:30. Stir every 30 seconds.
Mixture will look soupy, that is ok.
Let cool to room temp.
Take bowl out of freezer and beat 1 1/2 cups heavy cream with 1/2 tsp. vanilla until light and fluffy.
Add cooled chocolate mixture in two parts and whip until soft peaks form.
Mixture will still be a little soupy that is ok.
Spread whipped chocolate mixture over truffle filling and refrigerate overnight.
Before serving, beat cream with sugar until peaks form and spread over top of pie!
