Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Prick holes to bottom of pie shell. Bake in oven for 11 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool.

In a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, add chocolate chips, 3 tablespoons heavy cream and chocolate liqueur. Cook until smooth, about 1 minute. Add vanilla extract. Mix and let cool.

In a mixing bowl combine sugar and 1 quart heavy cream. Whip as if you were making whipped cream. Slowly fold the chocolate sauce into the cream.

Next pour the mousse mixture into the pie shells. Add chocolate chips to the top of the pies. Wrap the pie and freeze for a few hours or overnight.

Not a recipe I will make again. Too sweet and felt like it was missing something. Might be better with milk chocolate rather than semi-sweet. Too many other recipes to make to try this again. Needs a different pie crust. Wasn't fond of a plain ole' pie crust. Maybe graham crust? item not reviewed by moderator and published
So good!! Easiest pie ever and so decadent item not reviewed by moderator and published
WAY too sweet! Too much sugar, and maybe I did something wrong (although I followed recipe but it really wasn't all that chocolaty. If you let the chocolate cool then it ends up almost a little grainy when folding it in. I also think this may taste better with a graham or Oreo crust. I wasn't impressed with this at all :( item not reviewed by moderator and published

This is such a good recipe! Easy, requires few ingredients. and is versatile...pudding, pie filling, frosting...easy, easy, easy and full of wonderful chocolate flavor. When you don't think you have time for a chocolate cream pie then use this recipe! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Maybe I just misunderstood, but I was under the impression that 1 quart was 2 pints... so when I made this verbatim, I ended up with SO MUCH cream that I filled 2 pies, while simultaneously HALVING the chocolate flavor as a result. My recommendations: Reduce Cream to 1 1/2 pints Reduce Sugar to 1 cup Increase Chocolate Chips to 3 cups item not reviewed by moderator and published
