CHOCLAT SIN.. #12


IT'S NOT AS IF I RUSHED TO MAKE THIS LUSCIOUS DESSERT the second I layed eyes on it. I sort of spiritually absorbed it first. I liked the simplicity, the "no fuss" look of it.. and to call a pie "silk".... really appealed to me. Delighted when I stopped meditating on it and finally made it!

CHOCOLATE SILK PIE
X
7 ounces chocolate sandwich cookies (about 17 cookies)
4 tbls. unsalted butter, melted
2 cups heavy cream
6 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
2 cups miniature marshmallows
3 tbls. sifted unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tbls. sugar
x
Preheat oven to 350 deg.F. Grind cookies in a food processor. Mix in butter until crumbs are moistened. Press into a 9 inch pie pan. Chill for 15 minutes. Bake until set, 10 to 15 minutes. cool on a wire rack.

In a saucepan over medium-low heat, stir 1/4 cup cream, chocolate and marshmallows until smooth, 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool for 15 minutes.
x
Whip 1 cup cream until soft peaks form. Add cocoa, beat until stiff peaks form. Stir a third of whipped cream into chocolate mixture. Gently fold chocolate mixture into whipped cream. Spoon mixture into pie shell, smooth top. Chill and set at least 2 hours. Whip remaining cream with sugar and serve with pie. 8 servings.

If you'd like to drink a wine with this I suggest a light bodied red dessert wine such as Sandeman Porto Ruby.

Father, forgive me, for I have, yet again, visited Two Ghosts and lusted over the chocolaty sins of Lyn Rochelle.

Lyn said...

Hi Willow-

Hi Lyn,

It's a good thing that we get to enjoy these recipes in cyberspace or I should be needing the services of a dietician!

Lyn said...

Hi Derrick-
It's not as if I have more than just a nibble of this..I think that's the way to go! Offer some to the dietician!

I usually skip over your Choclat Sin headings; I've always walked past cake shops not daring to look in! I've now gained another few pounds just for my sin of looking! Mmmm, delicious but I won't make it!

Lyn said...

Hi Alaine-
Once in a while a little temptation is OK..Please don't think that I'm really dipped in chocolate..I'm mostly dreaming too!!
