Ingredients:
1 oreo cookie pie crust homemade or store bought
32 oz. container of heavy whipping cream 32 ounces/ 4 cups
1/2 cup powdered sugar + more if desired
12- ounce bag of bittersweet chocolate chips
1/2 tsp vanilla
milk chocolate chunk or chocolate bar for chocolate curls top layer

Instructions:
Start with the chocolate truffle filling, the bottom layer: In a saucepan, bring 2/3 cup of cream to a simmer. Place 6 ounces of bittersweet chocolate chips into a medium size bowl and pour hot cream over the chocolate. Let stand for 1 minute, then gently whisk until smooth. Spread the truffle filling over the bottom of the oreo cookie pie crust. Freeze for 20 minutes.
Next work on the -whipped chocolate filling (the middle layer). Using a double boiler (or microwave set on low power), heat the 6 ounces of chocolate chips with 1/2 cup of whipping cream until the chocolate is just melted, stirring often. Let the mixture cool to room temperature. In a chilled bowl, whip the chocolate mixture with 1 cup of whipping cream and vanilla until soft peaks form. Spread the whipped chocolate over the truffle filling in the pie crust. Refrigerate over night.
Just before serving, whip 1 cup of cream and powdered sugar until stiff peaks form. Spread the whipped cream over the top of the pie.
Garnish with milk chocolate shavings: Using a vegetable peeler, create chocolate curls to garnish the top of the pie.
Serve immediately with the whipped cream top layer.
