This pie tastes almost like the Baker's Square one, but much healthier--so you can feel a little less guilty.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 pint whipping cream
  • 8 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon gelatin
  • 1 frozen pie crust
  • 3 eggs, separated

Directions

  1. First, take the frozen pie crust and bake it according to the package direction and let it cool completely.
  2. Take the gelatin and soak it in 2 tb spoon of water for 5 minutes. Now melt this on very low flame. Do not let this burn.
  3. Take the egg yolks and 6 table spoon of sugar and put it on top of a double boiler. Start whisking until it turns pale and thick.
  4. Add the melted gelatin.
  5. Now in a different double boiler, melt the chocolate and set it aside.
  6. Whip half the whipping cream until soft peak forms. Keep this refrigerated, until needed.
  7. Now in a very clean mixing bowl take the egg whites along with the remaining sugar and beat them until stiff but not dry.
  8. Take the chocolate and mix it with the egg yolks. Remember to pour the melted chocolate in the egg yolk mixture, not the other way around.
  9. Now fold them gently first in the whipped cream and then in the egg whites.
  10. Pour the chocolate mixture into the baked pie crust and keep it in the refrigerator for at least 3 to 4 hours.
  11. In the mean time take the rest of the whipped cream and 2 tbs spoon of sugar and whisk it until stiff.
  12. After 4 hours, garnish the pie with sweetened whipped cream and chocolate shavings.
