Pie crust:
  • 1 package Pie crusts Store bought
  • 6 ounces Dark chocolate Or semi sweet chocolate I prefer dark!
  • 1 cup Butter Unsalted
  • cups Sugar Powdered
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp Cocoa powder
  • 4 Eggs Large
  • 1 cup Whipped cream
  • 1 cup Chocolate shreds
  • 4 Chocolate squares For decoration


  1. Prepare the mini pie crusts and allow them to cool down completely.
  2. Add the dark chocolate in a bowl and melt it in the microwave. Remove the bowl every 30 seconds and mix with a spoon to prevent chocolate from burning. Keep this aside and allow it to cool down.
  3. In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar together until the mixture becomes pale and fluffy (similar to when you make a pound cake!)

  4. Add the vanilla extract, cocoa powder, melted chocolate (that has been cooled down) and mix until everything is thoroughly combined and very fluffy.

  5. Add eggs, one at a time, while continuing to mix for at least 18-20 minutes. Your mixture should eventually be very smooth and creamy and there should be no graininess, whatsoever!
  6. Pour this mixture into the mini pie crusts. Cover with saran wrap and and let the filling set it in the fridge overnight.

  7. Prior to serving, top off each pie with a spoonful of whipped cream. Sprinkle some chocolate shreds and top them off with a few chocolate square pieces.

  8. If you are making a french silk pie dome, follow steps 1-7 but omit the chocolate pieces and then turn over one set pie on top of another.

  9. Top it off with some whipped cream and sprinkle some chocolate shreds.
  10. And you are done making your easy French silk pie dome!
