Chocolate Mousse Pie

Print Friendly and PDF
This is an old recipe that I found in my mom's recipe box. I made it for our Sunday family dinner when Stephen, Tim, Michelle and grandson, Sean, came to visit. It is very easy to make and rich tasting. You will love it!

Ingredients:
4 squares (4 oz.) unsweetened baking chocolate
1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
2 tsp vanilla
2 cups (1 pint) cold whipping cream
9-inch baked pastry shell, graham cracker crust or Oreo crust

In a 2-quart glass bowl, place chocolate squares, sweetened condensed milk and vanilla. Microwave on high for 2-4 min, stirring after each minute, until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth. Let cool to room temperature about 1.5 hours. In a separate bowl, beat the whipping cream until stiff. Gradually fold in the chocolate mixture. Pour into the baked shell. Refrigerate 4 hours or more until set. Garnish with whipped cream and chocolate syrup (if desired). Refrigerate leftovers.

Oreo Crust
Ingredients:
1-1/2 cups finely crushed Oreo cookie crumbs (approximately 20-22 Oreos)
3 tablespoons melted butter

Mix crumbs and butter in a bowl with a spoon. Press the crust into into a pie plate or springform pan.
