The recipe will take approximately 40 minutes to prepare and then another 2 to 3 hours to set up in your refrigerator. I like to make mine early in the morning so that its ready to go with our dinner later that day.
Chocolate Chiffon Pie Recipe
- 1 unbaked pastry shell (9 inch)
- 1 envelope of unflavoured gelatin mix
- 1/4 cup of tap water
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup cocoa powder
- 1/2 teaspoon table salt
- 1 1/4 cup cold milk
- 3 egg yolks
- 1 cup of heavy whipping cream
- 3 egg whites
- Whipped cream for garnishing
In a large bowl, add in your water and then sprinkle the unflavoured gelatin mix over top. Let the mixture stand at room temperature for 5 to 7 minutes to softened it up.
In a large saucepan, combine the granulated sugar, cocoa powder and table salt. Stir in the cold milk and egg yolks using a non stick silicone spatula. Cook this mixture over low heat, stirring it constantly to prevent scorching, until the mixture begins to thicken. You do not want to boil the mixture! Remove pan from heat. Stir in the gelatin mix until it has dissolved. Place mixture into a bowl and chill it in the refrigerator until it becomes syrupy, about 20 to 25 minutes.
In a separate bowl, whip the cream with an electric mixer until it becomes stiff. Gently fold the whipped cream into your chilled chocolate mixture. Slowly beat in the egg whites until all ingredients have been combined.
Pour the entire mixture into your prepared baked pie shell. Cover the pie plate and place into the refrigerator for 2 to 3 hours to chill and to firm up. Garnish with some whipped cream before serving if desired.
