French Silk Pie Oreo Crust Chocolate Pie

I made this pie for the first time for our early Christmas Dinner. It was such a hit! And when we were invited to a Christmas Party last weekend, and asked to bring a dessert, hubby made sure that I brought French Silk Pie. This pie is sooo good, I think that this might even replace my Sweet Potato Pie!

French Silk Pie takes about 7-8 hours total to make, but most of that time is spent waiting. I have found that making the pie the night before you’re going to serve it is best. This allows the chocolate mousse filling to firm up, making slicing MUCH easier.

Gather your ingredients.

In a microwave safe bowl, melt chocolate in 30 second increments.

In a small pot, over medium-low heat, whisk together sugar, eggs and vanilla. Whisk constantly, until the mixture reaches 160 degrees and coats the back of a spoon.

Remove from heat and stir in melted chocolate until smooth. Let cool until just warm, stirring occasionally.

In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat butter until light and fluffy – about 3 minutes.

With mixer on low, slowly add in cooled chocolate mixture. Increase to high speed and beat for 5 minutes. Set chocolate mixture aside.

In a clean, cool/cold bowl, beat cream until it starts to thicken – about 1 minute. Add powdered sugar, and beat until stiff peaks form.
*Make sure to use a cool/cold bowl or the cream will melt and make butter. If using the same bowl that you made the chocolate mixture in, run cold water in the bowl after cleaning. Be sure to dry completely before making whipped cream.*

Gently fold whipped cream into cooled chocolate mixture.

Pour mixture over cooled Oreo crust, using an offset spatula or the back of a spoon to smooth out. The filling will be higher than the pie plate.
