Whoa! Move over Willy Wonka! This smooth Dark Chocolate Silk Pie is so delicious! It’s sinfully rich with an abundance of butter, sugar, eggs, and of course, the star of the show, dark chocolate.The delectable cream filling is topped with whipped cream and sprinkled with dark chocolate candy bar slivers. Are you kidding me? (Nope.)

I used Hershey's Dark Chocolate Bars in the filling and on top of the pie.
In small saucepan, mix sugar and eggs together and mix until well blended.
Cook over low heat, stirring constantly until temperature reaches 160 degrees F and mixture coats the back of a spoon. Remove from the heat.
Stir in chocolate and vanilla until smooth, stirring occasionally to reach lukewarm 90 degrees F.
In a large bowl, using a mixer, cream butter until light and fluffy.
Add cooled egg mixture and beat on high speed for 5 minutes or so.
Pour into baked crust and refrigerate for at least 2 to 3 hours before serving, make it 6 hours for extra firm filling.
Garnish with whipped cream and chopped dark chocolate.
