Dark Side Chocolate Truffle Pie
Makes one 9-inch pie
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 (4 ounce) bitter sweet chocolate baking bars, broken into pieces
2 tablespoons seedless raspberry jam
1 (9-inch) pre-baked pie shell
Chocolate Darth Vader, to garnish (optional…just don’t tell Vader I said that)
Lightly sweetened whipped cream, to garnish (optional)
Fresh raspberries, to garnish (optional)
1. Bring the cream and sugar just to a boil, stirring occasionally, in a medium sauce pan over medium heat. Remove from the heat.
2. Stir in the chocolate and jam. Let the mixture sit for 5 minutes, then whisk it until the chocolate is melted and the mixture is smooth.
3. Transfer the mixture to a small mixer bowl, cover, and refrigerate for 45 to 60 minutes, until the mixture is cool and slightly thickened.
4. Beat the filling with an electric mixer until the color lightens slightly. Pour the mixture into the baked pie shell and smooth it out. Refrigerate until completely set (about 3 hours). Garnish with a chocolate Darth Vader piece or whipped cream and raspberries.
