French Chocolate Pie Recipe

Real Restaurant Dessert Recipe


This French Chocolate Pie is delicious - so much so it quickly becomes addictive. I have been making it for over 3 decades at the restaurant and people never get tired of it.

This chocolate pie is easy to make but it is so popular the restaurant still has a tough time just keeping it in the "house."

This pie recipe is basically a delicious chocolate mousse in a pie crust or Oreo pie crust. You'll really like it!

Tip: Add a tablespoon of Dream whip to each cup of whipping cream. It will hold up better in your desserts.
