All the decadence of French Silk pie in a poppable bite.
3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
3 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Unsalted Butter melted
2 teaspoons sugar
3/4 cup sugar
2 large Land O Lakes® Eggs
1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Unsalted Butter softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 (1-ounce) squares unsweetened baking chocolate, melted, cooled
1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Heavy Whipping Cream
1 tablespoon powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Chocolate shavings, if desired
Heat oven to 350°F. Place paper baking cups into 24 mini muffin pan cups; set aside.
Combine all crust ingredients in bowl; mix well. Press heaping teaspoon of crumbs into bottom of each prepared muffin cup. Bake 4-6 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool.
Place sugar and eggs in 1-quart sauce pan; whisk constantly over medium heat until mixture reaches 165°F. Remove from heat; cool slightly.
Combine butter, vanilla and salt in bowl; beat at medium speed until creamy. Add chocolate; continue beating until smooth. Add cooled egg mixture; beat at least 7 minutes until mixture thickens and lightens in color.
Spoon filling evenly into cooled crusts; refrigerate 1 hour or until set.
Beat chilled whipping cream and 1 tablespoon powdered sugar in chilled bowl at high speed, scraping bowl often, until stiff peaks form. Gently stir in vanilla.
Remove pie bites from pan; top with whipped cream and chocolate shavings, if desired.
It’s important to beat chocolate filling at least 7 minutes for a fluffier texture. Stopping too soon will result in a thick, ganache-like consistency.

The crumbs made enough for 36 bites. Once I finished mixing the chocolate (much more work than expected) I put it into a piping bag and piped 36 smaller bites. They are cooling now - will rate again after tasting. 3 stars because of the work (eggs/sugar mix - took forever!)
Hi Karen, we’re sorry to hear you thought these were too much work! We reviewed to make sure our stated prep time was accurate. The 7 minute beating time listed in the recipe ensures a light and fluffy filling. Any less and it would be thick, like chocolate ganache. Hopefully the work was worth it after you tasted them!
