If you read the recipe it clearly says to "add remaining sugar"
The recipe calls for 1/2 sugar for the pie filling. It also calls for an additional 3 Tbsp. sugar which, per the recipe, is to be added to the heavy cream.
Did you READ the recipe???
how can you put unflavored whipped cream on anything. the rest sounds find but who would serve a whipped cream with no sugar/vanilla..
Step #2 and #3 explains how to make the chocolate filling.
How can you bake that pie crust for an hour total without it burning?
This is the MOST AMAZING chocolate pie I've ever eaten. It's like a cross between a flourless chocolate pie and a fudgey brownie. My mom requests this pie anytime we have a special dinner. I will eat it with every meal until it's gone... I just can't get enough!!
Elvisfan -- the "Chocolate mixture" is the butter and chocolate, melted together. Let us know if you make it and how you like it.
Oh my - a chocoholics dream come true!
The calorie count is for 1 serving (1/8 of the pie).
The calorie count of 599 - is that for the whole pie or just 1/8 slice of it ?
The "chocolate mixture" is the mixture of chocolate and butter.
The chocolate mixture is the butter and chocolate that you melted over a double boiler. Duh.
No trick--read the following directions CAREFULLY: 1. In a heatproof bowl set over (not in) a saucepan of simmering water, MELT THE CHOCOLATE & THE BUTTER (THIS IS THE "CHOCOLATE MIXTURE"!). 2. Using an electric mixer, BEAT THE EGGS, salt, & 1/2 CUP SUGAR UNTIL FLUFFY, 4 to 5 minutes. FOLD A THIRD OF THE EGG MIXTURE INTO THE CHOCOLATE MIXTURE (TO "LIGHTEN" THE MIXTURE), THEN FOLD IN THE REMAINDER. 3. Pour the combined mixture into the crust and bake until puffed and beginning to crack, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool for 1 hour, then chill. 4. Beat the cream with the remaining sugar until soft peaks form. Spread over the pie and sprinkle with the shaved chocolate. Got it now? No trick!
How did it work with no directions for the chocolate mixture?
A-Ma-Zing!!! This pie is so good! I made the crust too, but used half butter, half Crisco.
Love this pie! It's easy to make and simply delicious. I made the pie first for Thanksgiving dinner and later for a dinner party with friends. It was a big hit at both events. Super light chocolate filling with a crispy light crust. Yum!
