Chocolate appears 3 times in this black-bottom pie: The crust is made of chocolate wafers, the filling is rum-flavored ganache topped with macadamia nuts, and the whipped cream topping is swirled with more chocolate.


Recipe Summary



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a medium microwave-safe bowl, microwave 1 1/4 cups cream until hot, about 3 minutes. Add chocolate and let stand until melted, 5 to 10 minutes. Whisk to combine, then whisk in rum. Pour 1 1/2 cups chocolate mixture into crust (reserve remaining chocolate mixture). Sprinkle nuts over top. Refrigerate pie 3 hours (or up to 2 days).

  • In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat 2 cups cream with sugar on high until stiff peaks form, 2 minutes. Top pie with whipped cream, then dot with reserved chocolate mixture. With a skewer, gently swirl chocolate through whipped cream.

I made this for Christmas last year and it was delicious!! I'm making it again this year. It's so quick and easy to make!

Made this for Thanksgiving since my partner and I don't like fruit pies, it's so good it should be illegal! I dusted cocoa powder over the top because the reserved ganache was too solid to swirl after I put it in the fridge.

I made this for a dinner party and everyone basically licked their plates. Two people even had seconds. Super easy, very good.
