Nestlé: Chocolate Truffle Pie

Sometimes a girl just needs a little chocolate.  Okay, a lot of chocolate.  And in those instances, the more delicious the chocolate, the better.  So why not a chocolate cookie crust filled with chocolate truffle?  It perfectly satisfied my craving, but I must warn you - it's VERY rich.  Very.  You may need a glass of milk with it.  But it will definitely scratch that chocolate itch.

Chocolate Truffle Pie
Adapted from Nestlé

1 prepared 9-inch (6-ounce) Oreo cookie crust
1½ cups heavy cream
2 large egg yolks
¼ teaspoon instant espresso powder
1 (12-ounce) package Nestle Toll House semi-sweet chocolate morsels
1 tablespoon salted butter
½ teaspoon vanilla extract

Whisk together heavy cream, egg yolks, and espresso powder in a medium saucepan. Heat over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until mixture is very hot and thickens slightly; do not boil. Remove from heat; stir in morsels, butter, and vanilla extract until morsels are completely melted and mixture is smooth.

Pour into crust; refrigerate 3 hours or until firm. Top with whipped cream and chocolate shavings before serving.

Makes 10 servings
