What's For Dessert: Frozen Chocolate Mousse Pie

With summer coming, there will be summer holidays, bbq's, and family get-togethers. Not only do you not want to be stuck in the kitchen, often we want a treat that is quick,light and cool. My family loves this. Give it a try!

Frozen Chocolate Mousse Pie


2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1 quart, plus 3 tablespoons heavy cream
1 tablespoon chocolate creme liqueur
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 cups powdered sugar
1 premade pie shell
Chocolate chips, for topping


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Prick holes to bottom of pie shell. Bake in oven for 11 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool.
In a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, add chocolate chips, 3 tablespoons heavy cream and chocolate liqueur. Cook until smooth, about 1 minute. Add vanilla extract. Mix and let cool.
In a mixing bowl combine sugar and 1 quart heavy cream. Whip as if you were making whipped cream. Slowly fold the chocolate sauce into the cream.
Next pour the mousse mixture into the pie shells. Add chocolate chips to the top of the pies. Wrap the pie and freeze for a few hours or overnight.
