I've made this pie about 30 times now, over the past couple of years. It's one that's requested for every holiday and get together...by my church, my family, my friends, etc. This is the #1 best recipe I've ever stumbled upon. I did make it the last time using semi-sweet chocolate, as I'd run out of unsweetened and it was good, but definitely unsweetened is the way to go!

Chocolate lovers--take note! This is over-the-top rich and delicious! I made this for our Christmas Day dessert and we LoVeD it! I followed Faux Chef Lael's tips to bring it to perfection: beat the butter and sugar a good 5 minutes, then beat each egg in for 5 minutes. Sooo good! Thanks Wildflour!

This pie is really good and very rich! A small slice goes a long way. I took it to a bbq and people loved it.

This is just perfect! I doubled the recipe and poured it into a deep dish homemade graham cracker crust. Also, I made my own sweetened whipped cream to top the pie, not Cool Whip. I used my Kitchen Aid mixer and it made this a breeze compared to when I made it with my hand mixer! So happy to have found this amazing crowd pleasing pie recipe!

Awesome! We loved it! Light and rich at the same time! I didn't use Cool Whip; I whipped my own whipping cream and sprinkled cocoa/confectioner's sugar mixture over it. Definitely goes on the list to make again! Go Steelers!

This is by far the best pie I have ever made! My DH loves this pie. He fell in love with french silk ice cream so I searched for the actual pie and here it is! It is perfect the way it is except DH likes the chocolate chunks placed on top of the pie instead of chocolate shavings!!!

This recipe is perfect! My inlaws are coming down from out of state tonight and I wanted to make an orange chocolate silk pie for my FIL. I zested 1 orange and folded it into the melted chocolate. Perfection! The trick really is to beat the eggs at the end and separately for quite a long time to get the height right for the pie. Thanks for sharing such a great recipe.
