Truffle Filling:
1 1/2 ounce milk chocolate
1 1/2 ounce white chocolate
1 1/2 ounce semisweet or dark chocolate

6 ounce bittersweet chocolate chips
2/3 cup heavy cream

Whipped Cream Topping:

For the truffle filling, in a saucepan, bring 2/3 cup cream to a simmer. Place the 6 ounces chocolate chips in a bowl and pour the hot cream over the chocolate. Let stand for 1 minute, then gently whisk until smooth. Spread truffle filling over the bottom of the prepared piecrust. Freeze for 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, for the whipped chocolate filling, in a double boiler or a microwave set on low power, heat the 6 ounces chocolate chips with 1/2 cup of the cream until the chocolate is just melted, stirring often. Let cool to room temperature. In a chilled bowl, beat the chocolate mixture, remainint 1 cup of cream and the vanilla until soft peaks form (tips curl). Spread the whipped chocolate mixture over the truffle filling in the crust. Refrigerate overnight.

For the topping, just before serving, beat 1 cup cream on medium speed of an electric mixer until it begins to thicken. Add confectioners’ sugar and whip until stiff peaks form (tips stand straight). Spread the whipped cream topping over the top of the pie. Using a grater or vegetable peeler, make pieces or shavings of milk chocolate, white chocolate, and semisweet or dark chocolate. Garnish pie with chocolate pieces. Serve immediately.

Disregard the ingredients list and just follow the directions portion of the recipe. The quantities listed in the directions is correct - but not in the ingredients section.

It's wonderful... from the reviews...the only way it would be "runny" is if they misunderstood that milk chocolate is chocolate milk and white milk??? maybe????

I second Jamie's remarks. I think the ingredient list is backwards. And my filling is too runny. It tastes good, but it's runny. I would not serve this to a gathering because of these problems. I hope the webmasters will review and correct these problems.

This pie sounds good, but it seems the instructions are calling the truffle mixture, the whipped chocolate filling, and the topping by the wrong name. Do you agree?

I would just like to point out that the measurements in the actual recipe language do not match the measurements in the ingredients part. For example, under "Whipped Cream Topping" ingredients section, chocolate chips and vanilla should NOT be listed, these belong in the whipped chocolate filling section. Also, in the "Whipped Chocolate Filling" ingredients section, the 2/3 cup cream should be in the "Truffle Filling" section. I started making this recipe according to the actual recipe instructions and to my severe disappointment, I believe the wrong amounts for the cream in the whipped chocolate filling were given. My filling did not whip properly because I believe the wrong quantity was refernced in the recipe. Actually, since the amounts in the recipe language and the ingredients section do not match up, how is one to know how much cream to use for each part?!?! Ugh. I am so disappointed. I have never had issues with any Paula Deen recipes and now I have a big chocolate (non-whipped, non-congealed) MESS! If I could give it a lower rating than I did, I would.
