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!

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
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.
