Raspberry Ganache Pie: Valentine Treat Part 2

I used my OREO crumbs for this special dessert!

Here's what I made my Valentine for dessert on Sunday evening. 

Oreo Cookie Crust (about 2 cups of crumbs + 1/4 cup melted butter, press into pie plate)
1 cup heavy cream
10 oz. Semi-Sweet Chocolate
Fresh Raspberries
Fresh Orange Slices (Optional)

Warm heavy cream in a sauce pan. Add chocolate. Stir constantly until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth and shiny.

Pour into chilled crust. Top with raspberries.

Chill until ganache is set (soft fudge consistency)

Slice with a wet knife.

Serve with fresh oranges.

Eat a small piece. It is intense.
