“For chocolate lover's only! Got this recipe last week after having this at a friends Christmas Party... First of all, it's HEAVENLY. Everyone kept talking about this pie & with word of mouth, it was gone before most could try it... I got to try it & it is delicious! I didn't even think I was that into chocolate, but this is very creamy & looked so pretty on the Holiday dessert table as it was garnished with puffs of whipped cream, drizzled with chocolate, topped with red cherries & green sprinkles... totally decadent! FYI: you can make pie crumb crust ahead of time & freeze or in a pinch use a store bought chocolate crumb Oreo pie shell...”

Cool to room temperature.
  3. MICROWAVE 2 cups morsels and 3/4 cup cream in large, microwave-safe bowl on HIGH (100%) power for 1 minute; stir. Microwave at additional 10- to 20-second intervals, stirring until smooth. Cool to room temperature.
  4. BEAT remaining cream, sugar and vanilla extract in chilled small mixer bowl until soft peaks form. Fold 2 cups whipped cream into chocolate mixture. Spoon into crust; swirl top. Garnish with remaining whipped cream. Refrigerate until firm.
  5. MICROWAVE remaining 1/4 cup morsels in heavy-duty plastic bag on HIGH (100%) power for about 30 seconds; knead until smooth. Cut tiny corner from bag; squeeze to drizzle chocolate over pie; let stand a few minutes before serving.
