This pie only takes about 10 minutes to prepare. I promise you will have the spoons out while you are pouring mousse into your crust!

How to Make Heavenly Chocolate Mousse Pie

Step-by-Step

  1. Crush cookies (about 1/2 package for an 8 in crust) do more if you think it is not enough. Melt about 1/2 stick of butter to hold crust together. Add more 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.
  2. Melt cream, chocolate, and vanilla slowly in a double broiler. You can use a heat proof bowl over a regular pot on the stove as well. Cool to room temperature.
  3. Beat two cups heavy cream, sugar, and vanilla, to stiff peaks. Fold whipped cream INTO chocolate mixture. Pour into prepared crust or individual serving bowls. Chill 6 hours until set, I make this a day ahead.

    Top with 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 wtih whipped cream on each individual piece and top with oreos as well.
