Chocolate Mousse Pie
Chocolate Crust (bought or homemade, recipe follows)
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/2 c. cocoa powder
1 c. powdered sugar
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
2 c. whipping cream
Beat cream cheese and cocoa together in large mixing bowl until fluffy and well blended. Gradually add powdered sugar and vanilla. Blend well. Set aside. Whip cream until stiff peaks form. Fold cream into chocolate mixture. Pour into prepared crust; chill until firm. Garnish with chocolate curls. Makes 1 pie.
1 1/2 c. chocolate cookie crumbs (I used chocolate graham crackers from Albertson's)
1/3 c. melted butter
3 Tb. sugar (if you use the graham crackers, do not add sugar; they have sugar on the outside)
Combine ingredients together. Press mixture onto bottom and sides of a 9 inch pie pan. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes; cool.
This is a very rich pie with only a little sweetness. Great for dark chocolate lovers.
