This month, in honor of Pie For Ty, I’ll be sharing one of my favorite pie recipes every week. Get stoked y’all.
Chocolate Mousse Pie. Ahhhhh. This particular pie was my favorite growing up – actually it still is. My mom would make it and my siblings and I would FIGHT over it. Literally. We’d eat it for breakfast – it disappeared at our house. It was coveted.
Plus, the options here are endless. Notice “chocolate chips” up there? Puh-lease. Girl, if you wanted to do peanut butter chips (tried that) or half peanut butter, half chocolate chips (tried that too) you can’t go wrong. Feel free to experiment with the crust too. My fav is graham cracker – and again, I double it. But I’ve done Oreo and that’s a party too. No matter what, you’ll end up with deliciousness in your mouth. Get creative and have fun!
