Hands down, my mama's favorite slab pie!

There's something about the creamy, chocolatey richness of a French Silk Pie that just calls for a special occasion, or perhaps a cozy family gathering. Originating from the silky, smooth texture of the chocolate filling that's just pure heaven, this pie variant became a big ol' French Silk Slab Pie, perfect for when you’re feeding a crowd. Using refrigerated pie crusts helps in whipping up this dessert without much fuss - ideal for when the kiddos are running underfoot or you've got your hands full with fixing up the main course!
Oh, honey, this slab pie is decadent all on its own, but if you're looking to balance it out, a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream on the side never hurt. It’s a rich dessert, so a light, fresh fruit salad could be just the thing to cleanse the palate, or a cup of strong coffee to cut through that chocolatey goodness.
