Chocolate Mousse Pie

Happy Monday! This is my husband’s favorite pie that I make. Every time I’ve made it I get rave reviews and everyone loves it! It is a rich pie, but oh so good!

Ingredients:
* 1 cup graham cracker crumbs
* 1/3 cup baking cocoa
* 1/4 cup granulated sugar
* 1/3 cup melted butter
* 2 3/4 cups chocolate chips, divided
* 2 cups heavy whipping cream
* 2 tsp. powdered sugar
* 1 tsp. vanilla extract

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350F.
Combine graham cracker crumbs, cocoa, and sugar in a 9-inch pie plate. Stir in butter until moistened; press onto bottom and up sides of pie plate.
Bake the crust for for 8-10 minutes. Sprinkle 1/2 cup morsels over bottom of hot crust, let stand for 10 minutes, or until morsels are shiny and are beginning to melt. Spread the melted morsels over the crust, cool to room temperature.
Microwave 2 cups morsels and 3/4 cups cream for 1 minute, or until melted, cool to room temperature.
Beat remaining cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla until soft peaks form. Fold 2 cups whipped cream into chocolate mixture. Spoon this into the crust, swirl top, and add another layer of the remaining whipped cream for the top. Refrigerate until firm.

I ran out of whipped cream at the end so mine isn’t as pretty as it typically looks. Normally, the whipped cream would cover the entire top, and you can even drizzle some melted chocolate on at the end for a final touch!
