How To Make French Silk Pie
The crust on a traditional French silk pie feels plain when compared to the lusciousness of the chocolate mousse. That being said, if you love homemade pie crust, go for it!
I made a graham cracker crust and pressed it into a 9-inch pie pan. Fill the crust with the creamy chocolate filling and smooth it out.
Top the filling with dollops of whipped cream. Put the whipped cream in a pastry bag, cut the tip off, and pipe it onto the filling. Or you can simply spread the whipped cream over the chocolate layer.
Finally, top the chocolate mousse pie with chocolate curls! I used a large Hershey’s milk chocolate bar. To make large chocolate curls, soften the candy bar in the microwave for a couple of seconds. Then, use a vegetable peeler to make curls along the edges of the chocolate bar.
Make Ahead and Storage
We brought this no bake French silk pie on our camping trip. I stored it in the cooler, and when we served it, there wasn’t a scrap left in the pan! We also make it for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
- Make Ahead: To make it ahead of time, prepare it as directed, cover the pie with plastic wrap, and store it in the fridge for 3-4 days.
- Freezer: To freeze the pie, place it in the freezer uncovered until solid. Then, wrap it in plastic wrap and foil. Freeze it for up to 2 months and thaw it in the fridge overnight.
There’s something about French Silk Pie that is irresistible to me! When I was a tween, this was my birthday “cake” of choice. My parents used to buy me a Baker’s Square French silk pie. I wanted to make a homemade pie with no eggs. So I decided to adapt my Oreo peanut butter pie recipe to make a French silk pie without raw eggs and now it is a family favorite!
