Step 3

Stir together chocolate candy bar pieces and 3 Tbsp. warm whipping cream until chocolate is melted and smooth. Pour into cooled piecrust.

Step 4

Beat 2/3 cup whipping cream at medium-high speed with an electric mixer until soft peaks form.

Spread Ganache evenly over chocolate layer, and sprinkle with chopped nuts.

This pie is probably the best pie I have ever eaten. The recipe takes a little time, but is well worth the effort.
