how to make this recipe dairy free...

Use dairy free margarine in place of butter and dairy free milk in place of cream in the filling. Use dairy free plain chocolate in place of milk chocolate. This makes a bitter chocolate pie. If you prefer it a bit lighter you can buy dairy free milk chocolate from wholefood shops.
