“A layered chocolate dessert for a special occasion. Make the day before because time is required for the pie to set. From the Deen brothers.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. For the crust: Preheat oven to 375°F
  2. In the bowl of a food processor, pulse graham crackers and sugar until finely ground. Add melted butter and pulse until mixture is moistened. Press into the bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch pie dish. Bake for 7 minutes. Place pie dish on a cooling rack and let cool completely.
  3. For the truffle filling: In a small saucepan set over medium heat bring the cream just to a simmer. Place chocolate in a medium bowl and pour hot cream over chocolate. Let stand for 1 minute then whisk until smooth. Spread filling over the bottom of cooled crust. Freeze for 20 minutes, or until firm.
  4. For the whipped chocolate filling: Place chocolate, 1/2 cup of the cream, and vanilla in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave in 20-second bursts, stirring between each burst, until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth. Do not overheat. Let cool to room temperature.
  5. In the bowl of an electric mixer beat the remaining 1 cup cream on medium speed until thick. Add chocolate mixture and beat until soft peaks form. Spread the whipped chocolate mixture over truffle filing in crust. Refrigerate overnight.
  6. For the whipped cream topping: Before serving, beat cream on medium speed until it begins to thicken. Add confectioners' sugar and whip until stiff peaks form. Spread whipped cream over top of pie. Garnish with chocolate shavings and serve.
