My daughter made this and She use to go to Perkin's once a month just to buy a full Chocolate silk pie, but since She has adopted this choc. pie recipe left in an old cookbook of My Grams, My daughter has never gone back to The French Silk ones, as She believes these are a hundred times more delicious. Well worth the little extra effort to make it!
