Dreamy Chocolaty Egg Nog Pie

Ingredients

For the filling

  • 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 2 3/4 cups Turkey Hill Egg Nog Ice Cream, melted, divided
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 5 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 9-inch frozen pie shell, baked according to package directions

For the topping

  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

Filling: Place semi-sweet and milk chocolate chips into medium-sized heat-proof bowl. Set aside 3/4 cup melted ice cream. In small saucepan over low heat, heat remaining 2 cups melted ice cream until very hot, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. Stir hot ice cream into chocolate. Allow to stand for a minute, then stir or whisk gently until smooth. Set aside. In a large saucepan, combine sugar and cornstarch. Set aside. Place eggs in small bowl. With fork, gradually beat in 3/4 cup remaining melted ice cream. Pour egg mixture into sugar mixture in saucepan. With whisk, stir until combined, scraping pot sides and bottom with rubber spatula. Stir until mixture comes to a boil. Boil and stir 1-1/2 minutes. Remove from heat. Immediately add melted chocolate mixture and vanilla. Gently stir until combined. Pour into the cooled pie crust. Place a piece of plastic wrap over the pie, having it touch the filling so that a skin won't form in the refrigerator. Chill for at least 4 hours. Spread whipped cream over chocolate cream pie. Garnish with chocolate shavings or mini semi-sweet chocolate chips, if desired. Store pie in refrigerator.

Filling: In a medium mixing bowl, beat cream with powdered sugar and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract until stiff.
