Dark Chocolate Satin Pie

A decadent, rich pie made in the same way as French Silk Pie but with dark chocolate. A delicious, smooth, and rich filling poured into a butter crust and topped with whipped topping.

Prep Time10 minutes

Cooling time2 hours
Total Time40 minutes
Servings10 servings


  • 1 baked pie crust
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • ¾ cup dark chocolate, unsweetened
  • ¼ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • cup butter
  • cup sugar I often skip the sugar, altogether. See notes.
  • 2 egg yolks beaten
  • 3 tablespoons cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • whipped topping


  • Combine the 1 cup of whipping cream, sugar (if using), chocolate, and butter in a pan on low heat. Heat until the chocolate melts, stirring often.
  • Remove from heat and add a bit of the chocolate to the egg yolks, whisking the whole time. When the egg yolks are brought up in temperature, add them to the chocolate.
  • Continue to heat, stirring constantly until the chocolate thickens and bubbles. Remove from heat.
  • Add the additional cream and vanilla, whisk well.
  • Set the saucepan on a bowl filled with ice water for about 20 minutes or until the mixture gets stiff.
  • Beat the mixture for 2-3 minutes or until the texture becomes smooth.
  • Spread inside your pre-baked pie shell and top with whipping cream. 
  • Cool for 2 hours before serving.


I often skip the sugar in this recipe (and in the pie in the photos, there isn't any) which results in an even richer, denser pie. I find that the pie is already sweet enough.
