INSTRUCTIONS
Oreo Crust

Whipped Cream
In a large bowl, whip the heavy cream and sugar together on HIGH speed for about 5-7 minutes or until stiff peaks form. You should have roughly 5 cups of whipped cream. Divide 2 cups into a pastry bag fixed with a large open star tip or set aside to spread onto the final pie. Set aside.

Chocolate Silk

  1. In a large microwaveable bowl, add the chopped chocolate and the butter. Microwave on HIGH for about 30 seconds. Stir, then microwave again for another 15-20 seconds or until melted and smooth. Cool for about 5 minutes.
  2. In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese until fluffy and smooth, about 1 minute. Add in the powdered sugar and beat until combined. Lastly, add in the chocolate, whipping until combined. Fold in 3 cups of the fresh whipped cream.
  3. Spread the chocolate silk filling into the pie crust evenly and carefully. Pipe or spread the remaining whipped cream onto the pie’s surface and garnish with chocolate curls or shavings. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours before serving.
