Death By Chocolate Mousse | Craft Dictator

I’ve been trying to think of great desserts for Valentine’s and when I think of Valentine’s I think of chocolate and strawberries.  I found a recipe on All Recipes that I thought looked like it was to die for so I had to try it!  I love Chocolate Mousse so I just couldn’t resist!

Ingredients
  1. 21 chocolate sandwiches, crushed
  2. 1/4 cup butter, softened
  3. 4 cups heavy cream
  4. 1 (12 ounce) packaged semisweet chocolate chips
  5. 1 teaspoon vanilla
  6. 1 pinch of salt
  7. 1/2 cup white sugar
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Generously grease a 9 inch springform pan with 2 3/4 inch sides.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together crushed cookies and softened butter or margarine. Press mixture evenly into greased pan. Bake in preheated oven for 5 minutes, then allow to cool.
  3. Combine 1 cup cream, chocolate, vanilla extract, and salt, in the top of a double boiler. Heat until chocolate is fully melted and mixture is smooth. Alternatively, if you have a food processor, you can blend mixture by placing chocolate, vanilla extract, and salt, in processor bowl. Bring 1 cup cream to a boil on stovetop, then slowly pour cream into processor with blade running. Continue to process until mixture is smooth.
  4. Pour chocolate mixture into a bowl and cool to room temperature, stirring occasionally.
  5. In a large bowl, beat 2 cups chilled cream with 1/4 cup sugar. Beat until stiff peaks form.
  6. Fold whipped cream into chocolate mixture. Pour mixture into cooled crust.
  7. Chill pie at least 6 hours before serving.
  8. Prior to serving, beat remaining 1 cup cream with 1/4 cup sugar. Beat until stiff, then pipe onto top of pie with a star tip, or place a spoonful on top of each slice.

First I made my crust.  I crushed up the 21 cookies and then put them in the bottom of my spring form pan and poured the butter over it.  I had to kind of mix it up to distribute the butter over all the cookies.  I then put this is the fridge to let it cool for a while.

While the crust was cooling I blended the chocolate, vanilla, and salt in my food processor.  It didn’t really blend until I started pouring in the 1 cup of cream which I brought to a boil on the stove top.  Once it was smooth I put it in a bowl to let it cool.

I then started making the whipped cream that goes into the pie.  I mixed 2 cups of the heavy cream and 1/4 cup of sugar until it had the consistency of whipped cream.  The recipe says mix until stiff peeks form.

I then started folding in the whipped cream to the chocolate mix and at this point it starts looking like a mousse.

I poured it all over my crust and smoothed it out.  I then put it in the fridge over night.

In the morning I took it out and opened up the spring form pan to see how my mousse turned out!

I then made the rest of the whip cream and piped it on with a star tip.  I added some strawberries to give it a nice look!
