Chocolate Mousse Pie

Chocolate Mousse Pie – For moms that need a moment of your own, pie is always the answer. Store it in the freezer. Then, late at night when the kids are sleeping and you are snuggling into the best place on earth (i.e. your bed), cut yourself a slice of mousse pie and enjoy your mommy moment.

I pray that some how “good” sticks to my daughter like glue and that if anything, I myself learn how to lead by example. Thank you to all those moms out there who inspire me to do more and to be more. I love you for the example that you set for me and those around you.

Filling:
1 cup milk chocolate chips
6 Tbs. sugar
3 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup milk
1 and 1/3 cup of whip cream
1 tsp of vanilla
Crust:
2/3 cup graham cracker crumbs
4 Tbs. melted butter
1/3 cup rice checks crumbs
1/2 cup chopped pecans

Directions:
Mix together graham crackers, rice checks crumbs and chopped pecans with melted butter. Press into the bottom and sides of a pie pan to form the crust. To make the filling, in a medium size bowel combine the cream cheese and 2 Tbs. of sugar with an electric mixer. In a sauce pan over medium heat or in the microwave, melt the chocolate chips and 2 Tbs. of milk. Once the chocolate is smooth, add the remaining milk to the chocolate mixture. Let the chocolate mixture cool a bit and then slowly add it to the cream cheese mixture while continuing to beat. Mix thoroughly. In a separate bowel beat together 1 1/3 c of whip cream, 1 tsp. vanilla and the remaining 4 Tbs. of sugar, beat whipped cream until stiff peaks form, don’t be afraid to overbeat the cream. Fold the whipped cream into the chocolate/ cream cheese mixture and spoon filling into the crust. Freeze until firm, about 4 hours. Before serving; whip up a bit more whipped cream using 1 cup of whip cream, 1/4 cup sugar and 1 tsp vanilla. Spread whipped cream over mousse. Use chocolate shavings to decorate this scrumptious pie!
