In advance, make chocolate scrolls using patterns and Candy Melts®: You will need 10 full scrolls, 10 full scrolls minus the side scroll, and 4 full scrolls minus side scroll and with stem extended 1 inch longer; make extras to allow for breakage.
Cover patterns with waxed paper.
Using melted candy in cut parchment bag, outline patterns; refrigerate to set.
Carefully remove candy from waxed paper, turn over and outline reverse side. Refrigerate to set.
Bake and cool pie crust.
Prepare filling, pour into pan and let set. Using stabilized whipped cream in Dessert Decorator Pro? fitted with tip 1M, cover top of pie with rosettes.
When ready to serve, insert chocolate scrolls in pie, beginning at the edge.
Position 10 full scrolls around edge of pie; 1 in. from edge and in spaces between first row, position 10 scrolls minus the side scroll.
In center of pie, position 4 scrolls with longer stems.

I didn't have the bag and tip, but I did have the candy melts... so I melted the candy, put it in a plastic baggie, cut the tip, and away I went. I only made 10 of the full-size scrolls because I was in a hurry. First time doing something like this and it turned out AMAZING!! I took it to a church function, and got scads of compliments. I just piped it on the wax paper, tossed them in the freezer for about 10 minutes and they were good and solid. I put the whipped cream on the pie, stuck the chocolate scrolls in place, put the whole thing in a cake-dome thing and took it to church. Great idea, beautiful pie, and now no chocolate cream pie of mine will ever be naked!! I'm already thinking of fun things for Christmas, like piping out trees or snowmen shapes for tops of cupcakes!! FUN! Thanks, Wilton, for making me a chocolate cream pie rock star!

Made this withmy mom for Christmas. Be sure to not get impatient with the chocolate, and keep chilled or it will get soft
