What's Cookin': Chocolate Mousse Pie


Now that Thanksgiving is over and I have pictures of this ohmysweetgoodness shamefully wonderful pie, I can share the recipe so that you have it in time for Christmas! You must make this pie. It's horribly rich, but light as air. And it's so sinfully delicious. I made it for Thanksgiving today and all but one slice disappeared. Which is good, because I ate it when we got home. Hehe.

I made my graham cracker crust by smashing up one sleeve of crackers and mixing with about 6 tablespoons of melted butter and some brown sugar. Then blind bake it for about 10 minutes at 350 degrees. Let cool completely before filling. Or you can use store bought. I won't tell!

Chocolate Mousse Pie
1 Graham cracker crust
8 oz cream cheese
1/2 C heavy cream
1/2 C cocoa powder
1 C powdered sugar
Pinch of salt
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 C heavy cream

In a large bowl beat together cream cheese, 1/2 cup cream and cocoa powder until fluffy. Add sugar, vanilla and salt. Beat until smooth.

In a separate bowl beat the heavy cream until stiff peaks form. Fold into chocolate mixture. Pour into pie shell, decorate with a hand full of mini morsels if you'd like, and chill for about 4 hours, or until firm.


Happy Eating,
Meg

Oh, I will most definately make that pie! I have some graham crackers left over from last winter's trip to the US, and this looks like just the thing to use them for!

(I've grown attached to you and your blog, too!) xoxo
