- Beat sugar and butter in a large mixing bowl until light and fluffy. Stir in vanilla, cream of tartar, and melted, cooled chocolate.
- Add eggs and beat mixture until light and fluffy on low to medium speed. Beat about 3 minutes. Pour beaten mixture into the cooled pie shell and refrigerate until set (3 - 4 hours).
- In a chilled mixing bowl, beat whipping cream and powdered sugar with a chilled beater until mixture is stiff. Top set pie with whipped cream. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve.
