When it’s made well, French silk pie is a rich pie with deep chocolate flavor, not just a box of chocolate pudding in a pie shell. This French silk pie ice cream is definitely the former: an extra-deep chocolate ice cream that is thick and smooth, extremely decadent and – dare I say – almost guilty? Ok, food should never be considered guilty, but instead enjoyed with abandon.
Make this and enjoy the treat!
