I had a helper in the kitchen. Also, he wants me to explain his pj’s. They are a gift from our Elf Jingle. In my house, if you don’t believe, you don’t receive 🙂

Anyhow, we had a lesson in safe chopping and he got to work on the chocolate…

How to Make The Best Chocolate Pie Ever

The filling is a super easy Chocolate Mousse. It’s a chocolate ganache mixed with whipped cream. Here we are stirring the chocolate with the heavy cream…

Stir it until the chocolate is melted and smooth and then let it chill.

This No Bake Sugar Wafer Chocolate Mousse Pie is a creamy and decadent dessert that’s light yet rich with a perfectly sweet crust! Chocolate pie has never been so impressive!


Ingredients:

Mousse

  • 1 1/2 cups chopped semi sweet chocolate
  • 1/4 salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 1/4 cups heavy cream, divided

Crust

  • 32 Chocolate Sugar Wafer Cookies (about 8 oz)
  • 2 Tbsp butter, melted

Whipped topped

  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 3 Tbsp powdered sugar
  • Cocoa powder for dusting

Instructions

Mousse

  1. Chop chocolate and transfer to a medium sized glass bowl. Add in salt and vanilla. Set aside.
  2. In a small saucepan heat 3/4 cup of heavy cream until it starts steaming. Don’t bring to a full boil. Pour hot cream over the chopped chocolate and allow to sit for one minute to soften the chocolate. Immediately start stirring the chocolate until it’s completely melted with the cream. Place bowl in refrigerator and allow to cool for just 30 minute until it’s cooled. DOn’t forget about it, because you don’t want it to get solid. Just cool, but still “stirrable”.
  3. Whip remaining 1 1/2 cups heavy cream in mixer with whisk attachment on medium high speed for 1-2 minutes until stiff peaks form. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.

Crust

  1. Grease a 9″ springform pan with butter, set aside.
  2. While the mousse is chilling place chocolate sugar wafer cookies in blender or food processor. Pulse until they are a fine crumb. The pulsed cookies will be slightly sticky, because of the filling. This is ok! Mix cookie crumbs with melted butter and press into prepared pan. Mixture can get sticky, I used my fingers to press in pan.
  3. Cover and chill this until ready to fill.

Assembly

  1. When chocolate is cooled remove it from the refrigerator and fold the extra whipped cream into the chocolate carefully. Continue stirring gently until mixed completely and there are no more chocolate streaks. Spread this into crust.

Topping

  1. Whip remaining 1 1/2 cups heavy cream with powdered sugar with whisk attachment until stiff peaks form and spread over the chocolate mousse. If desired dust with powdered sugar right before serving.

Notes:

store airtight and chilled for up to 3 days

In regards to the semi-sweet chocolate called for in the recipe–is this the semi-sweet baking squares and then chop as many needed to reach 1 1/2cups?

I made this and it was awesome. I want to send this recipe to my mom.
She does not have a springform pan. She’s 76 and not looking to acquire more kitchen gadgets. Has anyone tried this in another pan? If yes, what size? Did it work?

OMG This recipe is awesome!!!
I use dark chocolate 52% and in my opinion that’s so much better then semi sweet.
For the dutch users, use at least 100 gram of butter because otherwise the crust will fall apart completely.

Thanks for this recipe.

Sweet greating

Thank you for the amazing recipe! I’m a little “challenged” in the kitchen but this pie turned out perfectly! I made one for last night’s Christmas party and every last crumb was gone 5 minutes after I pulled it out of the fridge. I’m clearly going to have to make another 🙂
