About The Recipe

Happy Friday, everyone!

Can you believe we’re heading into the last week of August? I feel like I’ve been saying this a lot this year, but time seems to be flying by! The inspiration behind this recipe was from our S’mores Icebox Cake back in May. May feels like forever ago at this point, but that’s truly where the idea for this pie came from.

Well, that and have way too much chocolate mousse!

When we were first testing the mousse recipe for that icebox cake, we had made WAY too much. We started trying to figure out ways to use it and that’s how the idea for this pie was born!

We stirred in some chocolate chips, mixed up a quick crust, and let it freeze to see how it came out.

Turns out, the pie is absolutely DELICIOUS. Like, it turned out so much better than we had ever hoped and we knew we had to share it with all of you. It’s light, silky, chocolate-y, and so delicious Did I mention that it’s TRIPLE chocolate?

Between the crust, the mousse, and the chocolate chips, there are three delicious chocolates just waiting to be enjoyed inside this one recipe.

Expert Tips

  • If you don’t have a food processor, you can crush the oreos by putting them in a zip top bag and using a rolling pin to break them up.
  • Don’t leave the cookie crumbs and butter mixture too long before pressing into the pan. The longer you leave it, the butter absorbs into the cookie crumbs and dries out. This makes it very difficult to work with.
  • To press the cookie crust to the pan, it’s best to use a glass or a measuring cup.
  • When making the chocolate mousse, be sure that the gelatin is entirely dissolved into the egg mixture before moving forward. You don’t want chunks of gelatin in your mousse!
  • If using sheet gelatin rather than powdered gelatin, you will need 1 sheet.
  • The melted chocolate NEEDS to be warm for this recipe. If it gets cold by the time you add it to the egg mixture, you will have chunks of chocolate in your mousse.
  • Be careful to not over-whip your cream!
  • When folding in the whipped cream, do not over fold. You don’t want to deflate the mousse.

    1. Hi Kara! If you are using an actual double boiler instead of just a bowl set over a saucepan, then yes; you definitely want to remove it. Otherwise, it won’t matter. You can also just add the egg mixture to the chocolate. Either way works just fine. Let me know if you have any more questions.
