Chocolate Truffle Pie Recipe

This past Saturday was National Pet Day. Did you know? I didn’t actually post a picture of Jessie anywhere or anything, so I figure I’ll recognize her awesomeness now. 🙂

I’ve told you before that she’s pretty much the best, most chill dog ever. The hubs was out of town last week, and she kept me company while he was gone. She snuggled up in bed with me at night and kept me warm.

And she’s so funny on walks sometimes. If we take a rawhide bone with us for her to carry on the way back, she starts to pick up other things too. Last night the hubs and I walked her together and on the way back she decided to carry home a rock with her bone. And not just any rock, but one that was super small. Like the size of a mini reeses. She was constantly dropping it and having to pick it back up. Each time she had to put down the bone and rearrange the way she picked them back up so she could carry them. It’s pretty hilarious to watch.

She’ll come home with all kinds of stuff sometimes. She’s come running it the back door with like 4 things before and just drops them for me. Silly pup.

And then there was Saturday when I was walking her and had to go help a neighbor. We live in a neighborhood with several subdivisions and we were walking through one of the other ones when a senior woman tipped her motorized wheelchair and fell out of it onto the road. Fortunately she was ok, but because of her bad knees, she wasn’t able to get up. The subdivision is primarily seniors and her neighbor came out to help, but wasn’t strong enough to lift her. Together though, the two of us were able to get her back in her chair.

I had Jessie with me and she did so well. I had her sit in a yard and she stayed right there. She eventually walked over to us to check out what was going on, but she never wandered off or caused an issue. #prouddoggiemom

I love that sweet pup and am so glad she’s ours.

Jessie also makes a pretty excellent photo assistance – or at least she thinks she does.

It never fails that when I’m taking pictures of a dessert for the blog, she is right under my feet waiting for something to drop or for me to give her a bite. Sadly for her, she couldn’t taste this pie. No chocolate for her.

More for me!

Why I Love This Easy Chocolate Pie

This Chocolate Truffle Pie is seriously tasty. It came about because I wanted a chocolate pie that used mascarpone cheese – simple as that. I love mascarpone and it’s subtle flavor. I’ve used it in a Cannoli Poke Cake, Cannoli Icebox Cake and a Classic Tiramisu and it never fails to delight me. I though it would be delicious with chocolate in a pie crust, so I did it. And again, I love the flavor it adds.

The pie is actually fairly thick. Don’t think pudding, think more like a thick mousse. It’s very light in your mouth like mousse. Yet it’s much firmer and almost flakey. I know flakey sounds weird, but it’s hard to describe. It kind of melts in your mouth.

You’ll just have to make it to know for sure, but it is delicious. Light, airy and chocolatey!

Description

This Chocolate Truffle Pie is a delicious, mousse-like pie made with chocolate ganache and mascarpone cheese! It’s an easy no-bake dessert that everyone will fall in love with!


Scale

Ingredients

CRUST

  • 2 1/2 cups oreo crumbs
  • 5 tbsp butter, melted

FILLING

  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream, divided
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 12 oz semi sweet chocolate (I used Ghirardelli chocolate bars)
  • 1/2 cup salted butter
  • 8 oz mascarpone cheese, room temperature
  • chocolate shavings, for garnish

Instructions

1. Grease a 9 inch pie pan.
2. In a medium sized bowl, add melted butter to cookie crumbs and mix until combined.
3. Press cookie mixture evenly into the bottom and up the sides of the pie pan, then set aside.
4. Place 1 1/2 cups of heavy whipping cream into a large mixer bowl and whip on high until it begins to thicken.
5. Add powdered sugar and vanilla extract and continue whipping until stiff peaks form. Set whipped cream aside.
6. Place chocolate pieces, remaining 1/2 cup of heavy cream and butter into a microwave safe bowl or measuring cup. Heavy cream should mostly cover the chocolate chips.
7. Microwave mixture until cream begins to boil, about 1-2 minutes.
8. Whisk mixture until chocolate is completely melted.
9. Add mascarpone cheese to chocolate and stir until smooth.
10. Fold half of the whipped cream into the chocolate mixture.
11. Spread chocolate mixture evenly into pie crust.
12. Top pie with remaining whipped cream and chocolate shavings, if desired.

    Hi Lindsey, I made this pie. It was outstanding!! But I do have one suggestion for the recipe, after the chocolate is put in the pie shell, CHILL IT idk maybe a few hours. But when I put the whipped cream on top it just tried to mix in with the chocolate. Wouldn’t spread. So that’s my suggestion. Chill the pie before applying the cream cheese . Also I used the extra prep crumbs for the garnish, like I said. It was outstanding. My girlfriends loved it. Thanks Lindsey.

    I have a couple of questions that aren’t addressed in the recipe: the filing mixture is runny. How long do you advise chilling the pie before serving? Also, is the chocolate garnish in addition to the 12 oz in the filling?

    I’ve made this for a special dinner, and now I’m uncertain.. Thank you!

    1. Lindsay

      It’s been quite a while since I made this, but I don’t remember the filling being runny. I would try refrigerating it for 2-3 hours and see how it does. And yes, the garnish is additional.

    Where did you get that cute plate (It looks like white eyelet) that the pie is sitting on? I love it!

  4. Debra

    I was curious if you could estimate how much salt I should add to the chocolate mousse section since I only have unsalted butter. I am making this pie tonight for a co-worker’s birthday. Thank you for the recipe!

    1. Lindsay

      I’d say around 1/8 of a teaspoon or less, depending on how much salt you like for flavor. I might add a little less and taste the filling, then add more if you think it needs it.

  5. Stacey Ladesic

    I just made this pie and the filling turned out fairly runny. The instructions don’t say anything about refrigerating for several hours to allow it to firm up. I’m going to put it in the fridge now – I’m just a little nervous because this if for a family get together… Also I ended up with quite a bit of extra filling (of which I’m finding it very hard not to eat with a spoon! It’s delicious!) Anyway, I guess I’m just looking for reassurance that my pie will soon firm up like your pictures. Thanks!

    What a sweet pup! I love the story about carrying the rock back to the house. Too cute! This chocolate truffle pie looks incredible. I’ll take a big slice, please!

  7. Jessica @ Sweet Menu

    What a delicious pie! I love mascarpone cheese and truffles and everything this cake is all about! I can’t wait to try it for my family.

  8. Jocelyn (Grandbaby cakes)

    Ok I seriously cannot deal with how amazing this looks. Sorry that’s all I got. I cannot stop drooling!

  9. Mir

    Wow, you were in the right place to help that woman who fell down! And your doggie was so good.
    And this pie is so good. I love that it’s thicker. Nothing is more delicious than that intense chocolate!
