Lisa's right, this sure is a heavenly chocolate mousse pie. It's very decadent. Smooth and creamy, we loved the easy to make mousse with the crunchy Oreo crust. Full of chocolate goodness, no one will believe how simple this pie is to prepare.

Ingredients For heavenly chocolate mousse pie

  • 1 pkg
    Oreo's (cheap chocolate cookies work just as well)
  • 1/2 stick
    melted butter, enough to hold crumbs together
  • 12 oz
    semi-sweet chocolate
  • 1 tsp
  • 1 c
    heavy cream
  • 2 c
    heavy cream
  • 1/2 c
  • 1/2 tsp
  • shaved chocolate (Hershey bars taste the best)
  • additional whipped cream

How To Make heavenly chocolate mousse pie

  • Oreo crust pressed into a springform pan.
    Crush cookies (about 1/2 package for an 8-inch crust). Do more if you think it is not enough. Melt 1/2 stick of butter to hold the crust together. Add more butter if needed. For a pie shape you can use a pie tin, I use a spring form pan. Also is lovely with no crust and using champagne glasses or whatever fun shaped large or individual serving bowls/glasses you have.
  • Melting chocolate in a bowl on the stove.
    Melt cream, chocolate, and vanilla slowly in a double boiler. You can use a heat-proof bowl over a regular pot on the stove as well. Cool to room temperature.
  • Whipped cream in a bowl.
    Beat two cups heavy cream, sugar, and vanilla, to stiff peaks.
  • Folding the whipped cream into the melted chocolate.
    Fold whipped cream into the chocolate mixture.
  • Topping the Oreo crust with the chocolate mousse.
    Pour into the prepared crust (can also make this in individual serving bowls). Chill 6 hours until set. I make this a day ahead.
  • Whipped cream and chocolate shavings added to the chocolate mousse pie.
    Top with additional whipped cream. I like to do a full layer of the whipped cream on the entire top of the pie and then garnish it with shaved chocolate. You can top with whipped cream on each individual piece and Oreo's as well.
