Creamy Chocolate Mousse Pie

Servings 8-10 

Ingredients:

For the crust:

  • 9 ounces chocolate wafer cookies, crushed into fine crumbs
  • 5 tablespoons salted butter, melted
  • 6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, melted

For the chocolate mousse:

  • 6 ounces semisweet chocolate, broken into 1/2-ounce pieces
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 3 egg whites
  • 2 tablespoons sugar

For the whipped topping:

  • 1/4 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • chocolate shavings or cinnamon, for garnish

 

Instructions:

To make the crust:

  • In a medium bowl, stir together the cookie crumbs and butter until moistened. Press the mixture evenly into a 9-inch deep dish pie plate being sure to coat the bottom and the sides. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  • Spread the melted chocolate evenly over the bottom of the crust and refrigerate until firm, approximately 5-10 minutes.

To make the chocolate mousse filling:

  • Heat 1-inch of water in the bottom half of a double boiler over medium heat. Place 6-ounces of semisweet chocolate in the top half of the double boiler. Tightly cover the top with film wrap.
  • Allow the chocolate to melt slowly, about 9 to 10 minutes.
  • Remove from the heat and stir until smooth keep at room temperature until needed.
  • Place 1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream in the well-chilled bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a well-chilled balloon whip.
  • Whisk on high speed until peaks form, about 1 minute. Set aside for a few minutes until needed.
  • Whisk 3 egg whites in a large stainless-steel bowl, until soft peaks form, about 3 minutes. Add 2 tablespoons sugar and continue to whisk until stiff peaks form about 2 to 2 1/2 minutes.
  • Add a 1/4 of the whipped cream to the chocolate and whisk quickly, vigorously, and thoroughly, then add to the egg whites. Now add the remaining whipped cream.
  • Fold all together gently but thoroughly.
  • Pour the chocolate mousse filling into the pie crust and spread evenly. Return the pie to the refrigerator and chill for 1 hour or overnight.

To make the whipped topping:

  • In a medium bowl, beat the confectioners’ sugar and cream together with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form.
  • Spread the whipped cream over the top of the pie.
  • Garnish with chocolate shavings or cinnamon, if desired.
  • Chill for 30 minutes or overnight.
  • Slice with a sharp knife warmed in hot water to make slicing easier.
