Dark & White Chocolate Cream Pie

Roses are red, chocolate is sweet, and this Dark & White Chocolate Cream Pie is the ideal Valentine’s Day treat. You’ll more than prove your love serving this indulgent pie.

Chocolate and Valentine's Day go hand-in-hand. Can you really have one without the other? Not really. This year, surprise your sweetheart by making this rich and dreamy pie — you’re certain to receive a hug or two for your efforts, and who knows, maybe even get out of cleanup duty.

This Dark & White Chocolate Cream Pie is no ordinary dessert. With two types of chocolate — because two is always better than one, well, at least in this case — you’re stepping up your game. And kudos to Robin (yes we’re tooting her horn) for using chocolate in each layer. There’s a chocolate graham cracker crust sealed with a kiss of white chocolate and marshmallow filling, and a silky smooth chocolate mousse. But wait, there’s also a chocolate whipped topping. You’re welcome. Now go on and be the best Cupid around, and celebrate love and chocolate in the best way possible — with a slice of this pie.

Test Kitchen Tip

An easy way to make chocolate shavings is to run a vegetable peeler along a bar of chocolate. The skinnier the chocolate bar, the smaller the chocolate shavings will be.

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350°. Lightly coat a 9-inch pie plate with nonstick spray.

For the crust, combine crumbs, butter, sugar, cinnamon, and salt; press evenly into bottom and up sides of prepared pie plate.

Bake crust until set, 810 minutes. Cool crust completely.

For the white chocolate layer, heat 2 Tbsp. cream, marshmallows, and chocolate in a microwavesafe bowl; microwave on high 30 seconds, then stir, and repeat until marshmallows and chocolate are melted. Chill white chocolate mixture, stirring occasionally, until it mounds slightly when dropped from a spoon, about 15 minutes.

Beat remaining 6 Tbsp. heavy cream with a hand mixer until soft peaks form. Add white chocolate mixture and beat until medium peaks form; spread over cooled crust and chill.

For the chocolate mousse, heat water, cocoa, sugar, and salt in a saucepan over low until cocoa dissolves. Off heat, add chocolate and vanilla, stirring, until completely melted. Let mixture cool 510 minutes.

Beat heavy cream with a hand mixer until medium peaks form. Fold chocolate mixture into whipped cream until no white streaks remain; spread evenly over white chocolate layer. Chill pie at least 1 hour, or until filling is firm. Pipe whipped cream on pie just before serving; top with raspberries and chocolate shavings.

White Chocolate Whipped Cream

Combine chocolate and ¼ cup heavy cream in a microwavesafe bowl; microwave on high 30 seconds, then stir, and repeat until chocolate is smooth. Cool chocolate mixture to room temperature.

Beat remaining ¾ cup cream and sugar with a hand mixer until soft peaks form; add cooled chocolate mixture and beat to stiff peaks.

A small measuring cup is an ideal tool to press the crumbs into the edges and up the sides of the plate for the crust.

Take your time spreading the white chocolate mixture over the crust. You want to be careful not to get chocolate crumbs into the white chocolate layer.

To give the mousse a light and airy texture, gently fold the whipped cream into the chocolate mixture. But make sure not to over fold the mixture, so as not to deflate the whipped cream.

Statistics

Statistics

  • Average: 5.00
  • Standardized Average: 5.00
    This is the average rating for this recipe, relative to the average rating of all of the recipes on this site. The average rating of all the recipes on this site is 45.14. If we pin the population average to 3 (define 3 as the new 45.14) and adjust this particular recipe's average accordingly, we see that, relative to a population average of 3, this recipe's adjusted standardized average is 5.00. This number is useful in that it accounts for how different people have different interpretations of the rating system.
  • Median: 5
    This is the rating that is in the middle of the ratings distribution. It is generally more indicative of how much you will actually like this recipe than the average because the average is subject to being skewed by outliers.
  • Mode: 5
    This is the most common rating that people have given this recipe.
  • Standard Deviation: None
    This is a measure of how polarizing the recipe is; how much people disagree about it.
    0 is the least polarizing; everyone agrees on the rating.
    2.5 is the most polarizing.
    Recipes with lower standard deviations in the ratings are better for people who don't want surprises. Higher standard deviations are good for adventurous cooks. There is no standard deviation for this recipe because it has fewer than 2 ratings so far.
I first made this pie for Valentine’s Day this year and it’s become one of my favorite desserts. It’s sweet but not over the top sweet and is so decadent. It tastes just as good as it looks! And the dark chocolate mousse recipe is a good basic recipe that I can incorporate into other desserts in place of chocolate pudding.
