Fluffy Chocolate Silk Pie

"This recipe was in the February 2008 issue of Simple and Delicious magazine. It is very easy to put together and the flavor reminds me a lot of Tippin's French Silk Pie. Prep time does not include chill time."

  1. This was a delicious pie! It was a bit rich but a big hit with all the adults and kids alike. this just means a little piece is enough. Infact, it was requested for our next large family gathering. I was in a bit of a pinch and didn't have the heavy whipping cream but had "Cool Whip". I replaced the heavy whipping cream with a carton of cool whip in the chocolate mix and the topping and it was great.
     
  2. I was looking for a recipe that did not call for eggs. Very easy and the coffee added a nice depth of flavor, however, a little on the sweet side. I am not a fan of french silk pie but my step-son loves it and requested it for his birthday. He enjoyed it.
