Raw eggs always pose the risk for salmonella so make sure you use fresh, refrigerated, clean, high grade and pasteurized eggs to reduce the risk. Pregnant people, older folks, young children, babies and people with compromised immune systems are at a higher risk for getting salmonella. 

It was a couple Thanksgivings ago I made the BEST EVER CHOCOLATE SILK PIE and it is beyond delicious! This year I wanted to put another spin on it and make it even chocolatey than before. This one has a chocolate Oreo Crust and is garnished with plump and juicy strawberries on top.

My mom and I got together to make and test a few recipes a couple weeks ago and this Chocolate Strawberry Silk Pie was definitely one of the biggest hits. It is sweet and rich and absolutely amazing! The strawberries are obviously optional, but I have always loved the chocolate-strawberry combo and thought it would be a delicious addition to the recipe.

What is the difference between French Silk and Chocolate Cream Pies:

Chocolate Cream Pies tend to be filled with pudding whereas French Silk Pies contain eggs, butter, and chocolate.

Why is my Chocolate Silk Pie Grainy:

Using ultrafine sugar will help reduce graininess. I use regular granulated sugar when I can’t find the ultrafine and just make sure to beat it long enough. I have never had any problems yet but this is one question that is commonly asked. Using ultrafine sugar and/or beating long enough help to reduce the grainy texture.
