This pie is for chocolate lovers! It has a chocolate hazelnut crust filled with chocolate cream and praline paste and topped with praline whipped cream. Did I mention that it was decadent?
If you are not familiar with praline paste, it is a French paste made from toasted hazelnuts and caramelized sugar. You can buy it online and in specialty grocery stores or you can make your own with this recipe. All it takes to make praline paste are raw hazelnuts, sugar, water, and sea salt!
Once you have made your own praline paste or purchased it online, this pie is very easy to put together. The filling is made by bringing cream to a boil and then adding praline paste and chocolate. It will definitely satisfy a chocolate sweet tooth!
Praline Whipped Cream Topping
Perhaps one of the things best about this recipe is the praline whipped cream! Lighter than the chocolate pie crust and pie filling, praline whipped cream is the perfect garnish for this pie. It would also be delicious as a fruit dip or a topping for a cake.
