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!

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. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Heavenly Chocolate Mousse Pie

Step-by-Step

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Beat two cups heavy cream, sugar, and vanilla, to stiff peaks.
  4. Fold whipped cream into the chocolate mixture.
  5. Pour into the prepared crust (can also make this in individual serving bowls). Chill 6 hours until set. I make this a day ahead.
  6. 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.
