Cookies are good, Cake is Great, Candy is Dandy but this is the Pie for your Valentine.

Truffle Pie
Truffle Filling:
2/3 Cup heavy cream
6 ounces bittersweet chocolate chips
1 (9 inch) prepared pie crust. Graham crust is fine as is a baked pastry or other favorite crust.

Whipped Chocolate Filling:
6 ounces bittersweet chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1/2 tsp vanilla

Whipped Cream Topping:
1 Cup heavy cream
1/4 Cup confectioners sugar

Garnish:
1 1/2 ounces milk chocolate
1 1/2 ounces semi sweet chocolate
1 1/2 ounces white chocolate
(I omit the milk chocolate and use more of the white and semisweet)

For the Truffle filling, In a sauce pan bring 2/3 Cup cream to a simmer.  Place the chocolate in a bowl and pour hot cream over chocolate.  Let stand 1 minute, stir until smooth.  Spread chocolate mixture over pie crust.  Freeze or refrigerate for at least 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, for the whipped chocolate filling, in a double boiler or microwave set on low power, heat the 6 ounces of chocolate with 1/2 Cup of cream until chocolate is melted, stir often.  Let cool to room temperature.  In a chilled bowl, beat the chocolate mixture, remaining 1 Cup of cream and vanilla until soft peaks form.  Spread whipped chocolate mixture over the Truffle filling in the pie crust.  Refrigerate overnight.

For the Topping, just before serving Beat 1 Cup of cream until it begins to thicken, add the confectioners sugar and continue to beat until stiff peaks form.
Spread over the top of the pie. 
Use a vegetable peeler and shave the white, dark and milk chocolate over the top of the whipped cream.

Enjoy and I hope everyone has a wonderful Valentines day. 
If you have no one to share this pie with make the pie in little tart crusts and treat yourself.

LOL LOL -- as I was reading that fascinating recipe I was thinking about what I could do with it.
So much cream - so few share-rs.

Yes this is not a pie to make often.  Special occasions.  Like Valentines day, Christmas, A birthday, An Anniversary, Groundhog day, The day I wash the car. 
I like the fact that it looks very fancy and it is really very easy.  Broken down into the 3 steps it can be done over the course of a day if you are short on time.

Off topic here but, for me, BIG NEWS!!   Today I went to the 'fancy' grocery store in the neighboring town and, as usual, prowled through their cook ware and dishes section.    Oh, wow - how I love that place.   And I took a deep breath and bought a 9" spring form pan.  Oh my goodness!!  What a big step for me.   I thought I already had one maybe 35 years old but haven't been able to find it.

And this store had Wilton loaf pans -- 5", 8" and 9".  The 8" is the one I haven't been able to find anywhere except King Arthur Flour and they cost a fortune plus shipping.

Now please excuse me for butting in ..... lol .... the main reason I bought that $18.99 spring form fan was because I was thinking about Nikki'sTruffle Pie.  I thought it required a springform!!

You can do it in a Spring Form pan if you wish.  But there is no need the Truffle Pie can be done in a regular pie shell.
So if you don't think you will use it return the pan.  If you will make a tart or cheesecake then by all means keep it.

That's my problem Nikki ....... of all things I do not own one single pie pan.  ~blush~ .  I have lots of pots and pans and COOKIE SHEETS but not a single pie pan.  I can 't remember the last time I owned one.

Thank you for the delicious recipe.  I will print it.

Happy Valentine's Day to everyone (a little early).  (Don't know if I will be able to get back in.  Two days in a row did one question and got bumped out with the GOOEY message.    Just went in through a different server and got in, surprisingly.  It is getting very frustrating.
