At times, NOTHING satisfies but chocolate...and plenty of it! Try this for those days...
Fluffy Chocolate Truffle Pie
1 prepared chocolate cookie crumb crust or pre-baked pastry crust
12 ounces bittersweet or semi-sweet chocolate-chopped
1-1/2 cups heavy cream
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup Heavy cream
1-1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Additional Sweetened Whipped Cream for topping
Microwave chocolate with 3/4 cup cream. Heat for approximately 1 minute, stirring every 30 seconds. When chocolate and cream mixture is smooth stir in sugar and vanilla and set aside and cool to room temperature.
In a small bowl, beat the remaining cream until soft peaks form. Beat in chocolate mixture on high speed, adding approximately 1/3 of chocolate mixture at a time. Beat until light and fluffy and evenly mixed. Spoon mixture into prepared pie crust and refrigerate at least 8 hours before serving. Top each slice with dollop of whipped cream.
