Recipe Directions

Step 1: Prepare the Chocolate Cream Filling

  1. Heat the heavy cream in a saucepan over medium heat until it begins to simmer. Remove from heat.
  2. Add the chopped semisweet chocolate, granulated sugar, salt, unsalted butter, and vanilla extract to the saucepan. Let the mixture sit for a minute to allow the chocolate to melt.

Step 3: Swirl and Chill

  2. Place the pie in the refrigerator and chill for at least 4 hours or until the filling is set.

Recipe Tips and Variations

  • For a gluten-free version, use a gluten-free pie crust or make a crust using crushed gluten-free cookies.
  • Experiment with different types of chocolate, such as dark chocolate or milk chocolate, to create unique flavour profiles.
  • Add a sprinkle of grated chocolate or chocolate shavings to the pie for an elegant finishing touch.
  • If you’re short on time, you can use a premade chocolate pie filling and swirl in the strawberry puree.

Can I use frozen strawberries instead of fresh ones?

While fresh strawberries are recommended for the best flavour and texture, you can use thawed and drained frozen strawberries as a substitute. Keep in mind that the texture might be slightly different.

How long can I store leftovers?

The Chocolate Cream Pie with Strawberry Swirl can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Cover it tightly with plastic wrap or place it in an airtight container to maintain freshness.

Food and Drink Pairings

To complement this pie’s rich and creamy chocolate flavours, consider pairing it with a cup of freshly brewed coffee or a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream. The coffee’s bitter notes or the ice cream’s creamy sweetness will enhance the overall dessert experience.
