Chocolate Rum Mousse Pie

Rated as 4.56 out of 5 Stars

"An easy, elegant, and deliciously creamy no-bake pie. It takes just minutes to assemble, but is an impressive addition to your holiday dessert lineup. Don't like rum? Just omit it, and you will still have a rich and delicious chocolate mousse pie! Garnish with chocolate shavings, and some plastic holly leaves for a pretty presentation."

  1. In a small bowl, sprinkle gelatin onto cold water; let stand 1 minute to soften. Stir in boiling water until gelatin is completely dissolved. It must be in liquid form when you add it to the pie filling. If it stiffens up, microwave for about 10 to 15 seconds, and then stir until lump free.
  2. In a large bowl, combine sugar, cocoa, and pudding mix. Stir in 2 cups cream, vanilla, and 1 teaspoon rum extract. Beat for 30 seconds with an electric mixer on low, then beat on high until stiff peaks form. Gradually mix in gelatin mixture until blended. Pour filling into pie crust.
  3. In a small, chilled bowl, beat 1 cup cream with confectioners' sugar and 2 teaspoons rum extract until stiff peaks form. Spread over chocolate filling. Chill at least 2 hours before slicing and serving.

My daughter-in-law made this cake and what can i say - Delish! I plan on making it too when I have occassion. 5 Stars

Could never get the topping to work. Tastes great without it. For those who don't love the rum flavor, you can use only 1 tsp instead of 2.

Very tasty, very easy to make. Cutting back on the rum is definitely a good idea though.
