Chocolate Cloud Pie

Chocolate Cloud Pie

I will admit, I'm not a big fan of pie but I like to give diversity here so I thought I'd try and make a pie just for you. Don't you feel special now? Well, you should because when you make this, you'll thank me!
WARNING: This pie is made with dark chocolate chips and marshmellows. This is a very decadent pie!
Okay, now that I have your attention, let me tell you that it's a very simple recipe to do and only takes about 10 minutes to make. There is waiting time for it to cool down in between steps but overall it takes no time at all.
1 refrigerated pie crust (or you can buy the kind in the freezer section)
2cups mini marshmellows or 20 large marshmellows
1/2cup milk
2cups dark chocolate chips (or a 12oz. package)
1cup heavy whipping cream

Preheat oven to 400degrees and poke holes in the bottom of the pie crust for ventilation. Bake the pie crust at 400 degrees for 12-15 minutes, until golden brown. Please follow the directions on your pie crust if it's store bought. Cool on the counter for 20 minutes.
In a microwave-safe bowl, add the milk and marshmellows and cook approximately 5 minutes at 50% stirring every 30 seconds until melted.

Pour in the chocolate chips and stir until melted, which takes about 30-45 seconds. If they don't melt, pop back in the microwave for 15 seconds at a time.
Pour 1cup of the melted mixture into the cooled pie crust and spread out evenly then store in the fridge. Cool the remaining melted mixture on the counter to room temperature.

In a cooled mixing bowl, add 1cup heavy whipping cream and beat until peaks appear and it becomes light and fluffy.
Gradually mix in the remaining melted mixture until combined.

Pour on top of the chocolate layer in the pie crust and cover.

Refrigerate 4-6 hours or until well chilled.

Eat slowly and enjoy!
