Homemade Chocolate Mousse Pie
Pin It

The first of my homemade dessert recipes from scratch is a favorite of all who taste it. You will love it.


12 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips (milk or dark chocolate)
1-1/2 cups miniature marshmallows
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
3-3/4 cups HEAVY whipping cream
1/4 cup white sugar

Oreo cookie crust:
1-1/2 cups Oreo cookies, finely crushed (blender)
3 TBS butter, melted

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 vegetable 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 chocolate, vanilla and salt in a blender or food processor.

Boil 1 cup of the heavy whipping cream and SLOWLY pour in with the chocolate mixture; processing 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 sugar in a bowl until it forms high peaks. Fold this into the cooled chocolate mixture. Chill for a minimum of 6 hours; overnight is best.

Before serving, beat the remaining 3/4 cup of cream until it forms high peaks. 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.

Following are just a sampling of my easy dessert recipes from scratch.

Yes, I have more easy dessert recipes to share, and they are delicious.


Homemade German Chocolate Cake
1 cup sweetened condensed milk
1 jar caramel sauce
1 (8oz) Cool Whip (homemade doesn't work as well)
2 Heath candy bars, broken in pieces

Make sure you bake your cake in a 9x13 pan. Let the cake cool and with a wooden spoon handle punch holes about one inch apart over the entire cake. Pour the whole can of sweet milk into the holes. Next pour the entire jar of caramel sauce over the cake.

Spread the Cool Whip over the caramel topping. Last but not least - sprinkle Heath bar pieces over all. I freeze the candy bars and hit them with a hammer to break into pieces.

Refrigerate overnight before serving. This is very important for the flavor of the dessert.

Another scrumptious easy dessert recipe.


1 box graham crackers
2 small boxes instant french vanilla instant pudding
3 cups milk
8 oz tub Cool Whip
2 TBS butter, softened
1/4 cup milk
2 envelopes Nestle ChocoBake
1-1/2 to 2 cups powdered sugar, sifted

Place a layer of whole graham cracker on the bottom of a 9x13 pan. In a bowl, combine the 3 cups of milk with the instant pudding and beat until smooth. Fold in the Cool Whip and pour over the graham crackers.

Next place another layer of graham crackers over the pudding mixture. This easy dessert recipe is so good.

In a small bowl, add the 2 TBS butter, 1/4 cup milk and Chocobake with the powdered sugar to make a soft frosting. Spread this mixture over the graham cracker layer. Cover and chill until ready to serve. Another awesome quick dessert recipe.
