Chocolate silk Pie 2

I love this at Christmas time but it is delicious anytime of the year!

Ingredients

  • 7 ounces chocolate sandwich cookies (about 17 cookies)
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 8 ounces bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, chopped
  • 2 cups miniature marshmallows
  • 3 tablespoons sifted unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon sugar

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 350°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 12 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack.
  2. 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.
  3. 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 until set, about 2 hours.
  4. Whip remaining cream with sugar; serve with pie.
