It’s a fabulous Friday at The Slow Roasted Italian and welcome to Diving Into Decadence.
Uncle Happy, our oldest and dearest friend celebrated his birthday with us a few weeks ago. He requested a French Silk Pie, so I researched and found an amazing recipe. This pie was so decadent and delicious! I used a store bought pie crust and made beautiful chocolate curls from a Hershey bar. It was amazing!!! So easy and impressive.
