HOMEMADE CHOCOLATE MOUSSE PIE FROM SCRATCH
12 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips, chopped (milk or dark chocolate)
1/4 tsp salt
4 cups HEAVY whipping cream - divided 4x
1-1/2 cups mini marshmallows
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup powdered sugar + 1 TBS divided
Oreo cookie crust:
1-1/2 cups Oreo cookies, finely crushed (blender)
3 TBS butter, melted
shaved chocolate candy bar
PREHEAT oven to 350 degrees.
To make the crust, combine the crushed cookies and melted butter together in a bowl and mix well. Spray the pie plate with oil and using your fingers, press mixture into the bottom of your pie plate. Bake for 5 minutes and cool completely before filling.
For the filling:
Combine the chopped chocolate and salt in a small bowl.
In a saucepan add 1 cup of the heavy whipping cream; bring to a slow boil. SLOWLY add the chopped chocolate mixture and mini marshmallows; whisking until it is melted and smooth. Pour this in a large bowl and cool to room temperature.
Beat 2 cups of the heavy whipping cream and 1/4 cup powdered sugar in a bowl until it forms high peaks. Fold this into the cooled chocolate mixture and pour into the cooled Oreo crust. Chill for a minimum of 6 hours; overnight is best.
Before serving, beat the remaining 1 cup of cream until it forms high peaks. Add one teaspoon of vanilla and add 1 TBS of powdered sugar. Spoon over the pie and swirl with a tablespoon to decorate or use a straight knife to smooth the top of the whipped cream layer.
Garnish with chocolate sauce drizzled on the plate, shaved chocolate on top and fresh raspberries.
This is heaven on a fork, trust me.
