I always test out recipes a couple of times before I serve them to other people and I'm going to make this one for thanksgiving with a few changes: 1) I felt the coffee and the almond flavors were too overpowering so I left them out the second time. The chocolate is much better when it doesn't have to compete with other flavors. 2) I added four egg whites instead of three to the mousse part to make it more airy. 3) I made my own crust out of chocolate graham crackers. 4) I also added gelatin to the topping to stabilize it and I doubled the recipe for the topping because it wasn't enough the first time around. The gelatin creates an almost mousse-like consistency to the topping. Add some chocolate curls to the top of this pie and it will look like it came out of a fancy bakery. With these few changes this pie is perfect.
Can you say YUMMY??? The only thing I would do differently is chill the chocolate part until VERY firm (maybe overnight) because my whipped cream topping (I used peppermint instead of almond) just kind of sunk into the chocolate since the chocolate was still quite soft after 1 hour.
I wish I could give this a higher rating but five stars is as high as it goes! This is the best chocolate mousse pie I've ever had! Even better than in any restaurant I've ever had anything mousse in! It was easy to make and store and I even made mine non-dairy using Rich's whipping cream. Everybody raved about the pie. Thanks!!
This pie is so good! I brought it to a 4th of July BBQ and everyone loved it! It is a bit rich but still great. I defnitely reccomend chilling the pie overnight to get a nice firm (not soupy) consistency. When I made it I thought I had done something wrong because it looked so soupy but after leaving it in the fridge overnight it was perfect! Overall easy to make and so delicious!
Get ready to fall in love! This is THE best chocolate mousse pie I have EVER made. It was beyond good. Better than any I have had while eating out. Also this is SO easy to make!!! The only thing I would change is a little less almond in the whipped cream.
This was phenomenal! I made this for the Passover seder we went to (with a special crust) and it was devoured! The coffee really makes the flavor of the chocolate. It was phenomenal! Definitely chill overnight. Thanks for the great recipe!
