Patsy's Perfect Chocolate Pie

F or Thanksgiving my mom and sister made this incredible chocolate pie.  It was so delicious and a huge hit.  Let's just say it did not last very long.  It left me wanting more...craving it! Between Thanksgiving and Christmas I made it twice and took another one to a potluck at work (also a huge hit there).  Best of all it is super quick and easy to make. This recipe is definitely a keeper. Patsy's Perfect Chocolate Pie Inspired by Lauren's Latest 1 baked and cooled pie crust  12 ounces chocolate chips (Basically 1 bag. I like the Guittard and I used milk chocolate) 2 cups heavy whipping cream 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1/2 cup powdered sugar 2 cups cold milk 1- 5.1 oz. package instant chocolate pudding Chocolate shavings for garnish DIRECTIONS: Whip cream with vanilla and powdered sugar until stiff.  Set aside.
