Ingredients
  

Tart

  • 1 frozen pie crust or 1 layer of your favorite crust
  • 1 1/2 cups bittersweet chocolate chips
  • 1 14- ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/3 cup Irish cream liqueur
  • 2 large eggs

Topping

  • 1 1/4 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon instant espresso powder
  • 1/3 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened baking cocoa
  • Dash salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon Irish whiskey

Instructions
 

Tart

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Place pie crust in pie plate on a rimmed cookie sheet and poke holes in the bottom to allow steam to escape. If you have pie weights, it's also a good idea to line the crust with parchment paper and place them in the crust to keep it from puffing up too much.
  • Bake the crust for 10 minutes, or until very lightly golden. Remove and let cool.
  • Dump the chocolate chips in a large microwavable bowl and heat in the microwave at 50% power, stirring every 30 seconds until smooth. Let cool for 3 minutes.
  • Add the sweetened condensed milk, Irish cream, and eggs, and beat with a hand mixer until smooth. Pour into the prepared pie crust and spread evenly.
  • Bake for 15 minutes, then turn the temperature down to 350 degrees and bake for another 20-30 minutes. Keep an eye on the crust: if it looks like it's browning too much, cover with a pie shield or strips of aluminum foil.
  • Remove from oven when no longer jiggly in the middle. Let cool completely, then put in the refrigerator for 2 hours to chill.

Topping

  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the heavy whipping cream and instant espresso powder. Let sit for a few minutes.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients and beat with a hand mixer until thickened and spreadable. (Be careful not to overbeat like I did.)
  • Spread over the top of the pie.
  • Cut into slices and top with freshly whipped cream. Find your bliss!
