This is a chocolate chiffon pie. This is a serious dessert with a graham cracker crust and a rich and fluffy--but not too chocolaty--filling. The ingredients are fairly simple, but it takes time to make! Let's get started.

Step 1: Assemble ingredients and tools

There are three parts to this recipe, the crust, the filling, and the topping. Here are the ingredients:

Graham Cracker Crust
- 12 graham crackers
- 6 tablespoons butter
- 1/4 cup sugar

- Water
- 1 tablespoon unflavored gelatin (comes in tablespoon-sized packages)
- 1 ounce of unsweeted chocolate
- 4 eggs
- 1/2 cup sugar (x 2)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 teaspoon salt

- whipped cream OR Coolwhip
- graham cracker crumbs
- chocolate covered orange peels

Some gear you should check to see if you have are a food processor, a 9-inch pie tin, an electric mixer, and a few large bowls.

Step 2: Preheat Oven to 350 Degrees

Step 3: Crumb Your Crackers

Break apart your 12 graham crackers so that they can fit into your food processor.

Give them a minute or two in the processor until they are crushed into small crumbs.

Measure off 1 1/2 cups of crumbs. Place the rest in a bowl and set aside.

Step 4: Mix Crumbs With Butter and Sugar

Measure out 6 tablespoons of butter, melt in your microwave.

Pour your crumbs into a medium bowl.

Mix with melted butter and 1/4 cup of sugar.

Mix until you have no clumps of sugar or butter sitting around. Don't worry: your crumbs will not stick together very well.

Step 5: Shape Your Pie Crust

Pour your crust mixture into a 9-inch pie pan. You do not need to grease the pan.

Use your hands to push the crumbs down around the bottom of the pan and up the sides.

The thickness and pressure with which you push your crust against the pan will directly affect the strength of the crust. If you are concerned with plating, I recommend making extra sure that your crust is thick up the sides.

Step 6: Bake for 8-10 Minutes

You will know the crust is done when it has darkened slightly around its edges.

Set aside and let cool.
