  1. With the rack in the middle position, preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
  2. In a bowl, combine all the ingredients. Press the mixture evenly onto the bottom and sides of a 9-inch (23cm) pie plate. Bake for 10 minutes. Let cool.


  1. In a small bowl, sprinkle the gelatin over the water. Let bloom for 5 minutes. Set aside.
  2. In a saucepan off the heat, combine the sugar and flour. Whisk in the eggs until smooth.
  3. Whisk in the warm milk. Bring to a boil over medium heat, whisking constantly and scraping the bottom and sides of the pan. Remove from the heat as soon as the mixture reaches a simmer. Add the gelatin and stir until completely dissolved.
  4. Add the chopped chocolate and let rest for 2 minutes. Stir until the chocolate is completely melted. Transfer to a bowl and cover with plastic wrap directly on the surface of the filling. Refrigerate until cooled to room temperature, but do not let the cream set, about 30 minutes.
  5. In a bowl, whip the cream until stiff peaks form. Using a spatula, gently fold the whipped cream into the chocolate mixture. Pour into the crust. Refrigerate until set, about 4 hours.
  6. When ready to serve, place the chocolate hen in the centre of the pie. Garnish with the chocolate shavings and candy-covered chocolate eggs.
