Homemade Chocolate Pie

Homemade Chocolate Pie


12 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips (milk or dark chocolate)
1/4 tsp salt
1-1/2 cups miniature marshmallows
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
3-3/4 cups HEAVY whipping cream - divided
1/4 cup white sugar

Oreo cookie crust:
1-1/2 cups Oreo cookies, finely crushed (blender)
3 TBS butter, melted

PREHEAT oven to 350 degrees.

To make the crust, combine the crushed cookies and melted butter together in a bowl and mix well. Spray the pie plate with vegetable oil and using your fingers, press mixture into the bottom of your pie plate. Bake for 5 minutes and cool completely before filling.

For the filling:
Combine the chocolate, vanilla and salt in a blender or food processor.

In a saucepan add 1 cup of the heavy whipping cream; bring to a slow boil. SLOWLY add the processed chocolate mixture and marshmallows; whisking until it is melted and smooth. Pour this in a large bowl and cool to room temperature.

Beat 2 cups of the heavy whipping cream and sugar in a bowl until it forms high peaks. Fold this into the cooled chocolate mixture. Chill for a minimum of 6 hours; overnight is best.

Before serving, beat the remaining 3/4 cup of cream until it forms high peaks. Spoon over the pie and swirl with a tablespoon to decorate or use a straight knife to smooth the top of the whipped cream layer.

Garnish with chocolate sauce drizzled on the plate, shaved chocolate on top and fresh raspberries.

This is homemade chocolate pie is heaven on a fork, trust me.
