Comments

Note: You can make this pie 6 to 8 hours in advance, cover with waxed paper, and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Should you use a graham cracker crust or a sweet pastry pie crust? I like them both. A graham cracker crust will be much sweeter than the regular crust. A regular crust will have a nice flaky texture. Either one works well with whipped chocolate ganache.

Refrigerate unused portions.

For a pie with more chocolate flavor try making it using my Whipped Chocolate Ganache Pie With Chocolate Crust.

Looking for a quicker whipped chocolate cream pie? Try my cocoa whipped cream pie. It isn't as rich as the ganache filling, but will satisfy a chocolate craving and is quicker to make.
