Gonna Make A Fallin In Love Chocolate Mousse Pie

There were five bloggers that shared a love of pies and a collaborative project was born. It's called the Great Pie Bake Off. Join us as we bake our way through unique pie recipes and write about our journey.

"I'm telling you Jenna your make-up job was too good and your magic LOVE pie"

As we embarked on this week's assignment-making pie's from the movie "Waitress" I started to wonder about what made pies so magical. For Jenna it was memories of her mother creating pies.

For me it was learning to make pies from my Aunt Susan. We would visit my Dad's family every Thanksgiving and she was the Pie baker of the family. I would get to stay at her house the night before Thanksgiving and we would wake-up and make pies the next day...Pecan, Pumpkin, Apple and Chocolate Pie... It is because of her that I love to make pies and to her I dedicate this post...

"Fallin in Love Chocolate Mousse Pie"

9-inch baked pastry shell
1 14-oz. can condensed milk (not evaporated)
2/3 C. water
1 (4 serving) pkg. chocolate pudding mix (not instant)
1 1-oz. square unsweetened chocolate
2 C. (1 pt.) whipping cream, stiffly whipped

In large saucepan, combine condensed milk, water and pudding mix; mix well. Add chocolate. Over medium heat, cook and stir rapidly until chocolate melts and mixture thickens. Remove from heat; beat until smooth. Cool. Chill thoroughly; stir. Fold in whipped cream. Pour into prepared pastry shell. Chill 4 hours until set.

Serves 8.

This pie is one I will keep in my collection moving forward. It's the best tasting chocolate mousse pie. Light but rich and I love it in a pastry crust.

Now this post is just one installment! Be sure to check out my fellow bloggers to see their pies!

  1. This is the next pie recipe from Waitress I'm going to try. That chocolate mousse looks so creamy & silky and, well, who doesn't love a good chocolate mousse?! Thanks for playing along!

  2. Yours is another one that I thought looked amazing. Looks great! I wouldn't say I share a love of pies... I'm actually quite pie challenged!! But mine ended up turning out okay in the end.
