Chocolate French Silk Pie (Copycat Bakers Square's French Silk)

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Aussie-In-California

My b/f loooooooves Bakers Square French Silk pie. However, the chain has closed all of its stores in Southern California. A few Valentines days ago I tried the recipe that calls for Knox Gelatin and buttermilk - that was a disaster. This recipe which I found on is the closest to perfection as I have been able to find. Making sure everything is well mixed is the secret to a nice high fuffy pie.

This is a must for every holiday meal. Don't let the store bought pie make you think you've tried this. We use regular sugar which is probably harder to incorporate. I once had someone steal this whole pie from a pot luck at work.
