frozen chocolate mousse pieThe frozen chocolate mousse pie is another one of our favorite “ten minute pies“.    It is lighter in calories than regular, egg rich chocolate mousse – served in a pie or in a ramekin.   It does not have the intense chocolate flavor of true chocolate mousse but on a warm day or as a special and easy dessert treat, this frosty version of a quick pie hits the spot.

As a special treat for the family chocoholics, I prepare this easy chocolate mousse pie in an oreo crumb crust.

Frozen Chocolate Mousse Pie Recipe:


Recipe Copyright © General Foods Corporation (found in a magazine from the late 70s)

Ingredients:

  • 1 package (4oz.) Baker’s® Germans® Sweet Chocolate
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons sugar (I only added 1 tablespoon)
  • 1 (3 oz.) pacakge of cream cheese, softened (oops! I used the entire 8oz pack!)
  • 1 (8 oz.) container of thawed Cool Whip®
  • 1 (8 inch) gramham cracker crumb or Oreo crumb crust

Directions:

  • Melt the chocolate in 2 tablespoons of the milk over low heat, stirring constantly until the chocolate is melted.
  • Beat the sugar into the cream cheese, then add the rest of the milk and the melted chocolate. Beat until smooth.
  • Fold the chocolate mixture into the Cool Whip®, blending until smooth.
  • Spoon into the crumb crust.
  • Freeze until firm or a minimum of 4 hours.
  • Store leftover pie in freezer.

Note: While I was mixing the chocolate mixture into the cream cheese and folding in the whipped topping, I noticed something was just “not right”.

Now I know that it was the luscious color of chocolate mousse and the beautiful orange color of the Ambrosia Pie.

Moral of the story is not to rush when preparing a recipe you think you know by heart. I used an 8 oz. pack of cream cheese instead of the 3 oz. pack in both pies!

I will quickly add that two taste testers nonetheless gave the frozen chocolate mousse pie a stamp of approval.
