    LOL...I will drink the other bottle while watching the cook. If I drink enough do you think that it would help with doubling the batch? (darn did I say that out loud?)

    Hey Pretti...don't know of any sub for the heavy cream...wish there was...that's why this is a 'Special Occasion' recipe...my arteries need a good 6 months between batches.

    Yep, I definitely think a recipe forum is a great idea...there have been a few recipes people in this forum have shared in the past that sound delicious. Maybe we could even have a special area just for chocolate ones.....I know Angel would spend time there drooling for sure.

    Hey monkeys...explain the strange part...you knew I was strange already...you should know by now that you never know what to expect when you walk in on my posts. I like to keep ya on your toes, girl.

    Raising my glass in a toast to good food and good friends.......

    Fondly,

    Lori

    Here's one for Angle and other chocolate lovers.

    Truffle Pie

    Ingredients
    Truffle Fillings:

    2/3 cup heavy cream
    6 ounces bittersweet chocolate chips
    1 (9 inch) prepared graham cracker crust

    6 ounces bittersweet chocolate chips
    1 1/2 cups heavy cream
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla

    Whipped Cream Topping:

    1 cup heavy cream
    1/4 cup confectioners' sugar

    Garnish:

    1 1/2 ounces milk chocolate
    1 1/2 ounces white chocolate
    1 1/2 ounces semisweet or dark chocolate

    Directions

    For the truffle filling, in a saucepan, bring 2/3 cup cream to a simmer, Place the 5 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 pie crust. 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. Inn a chilled bowl, beat the chocolate mixture, remain int 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 over the top of the pie. Using a grater of vegetable peeler, make pieces or shaving of milk chocolate, white chocolate, and semisweet or dark chocolate. Garnish pie with chocolate pieces. Serve immediately.

    Rather than licking the screen, how 'bout I over and pick you up Angel.....and we'll head to Texas.

    Start cooking now, David...we'll be there in a few days.....Can you make one for Angel...and one for Me, pleasesssee?

    And don't rinse out the bowls or spoons...we plan to lick them clean.

    Lori,
    You pick up Angle and come on down. Lisa will make as many as needed. Then we'll all go sailing to top it off.

    After sailing we'll have fresh shrimp, crab, and red fish caught right here in Port O'Connor. We'll have a blast.
