Ingredients

Crust

  • 25 chocolate sandwich cookies
  • 6 T. butter melted

Ganache

  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream

Mousse

  • 2 (3.87 oz.) boxes Royal Delights Chocolate French Silk Dessert Mix
  • 2 cups milk

Whipped Cream

  • 2 cups heavy cream divided
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • large chocolate curls

Instructions

Crust

  • In a food processor, add in the chocolate sandwich cookies. Pulse until the cookies are a crumb mixture. 
  • Add in the melted butter and pulse until the crumbs are competely coated with butter. 
  • Press the crumbs into a 9 1/2 inch pie plate. Try to evenly distribute the crumbs on the bottom and sides of the pie plate. Press firmly so the crust holds together. Set aside. 
  • Ganache
  • In a microwave-safe bowl, add in both the chocolate chips and heavy cream. Microwave in 30 second intervals and stirring after each interval until the ganache is smooth.
  • Place into the freezer for 5 minutes to thicken up.
  • Pour the ganache on top of the pie crust. Spread it on the entire bottom of the pan. 
  • Place into the freezer for 10 - 15 minutes until it's firm. Begin working on the mousse.

Mousse

  • In a large mixing bowl add in the 2 boxes of dessert mix and 2 cups of milk. Beat on medium with a hand mixer for 2 minutes until thick like pudding. Turn the hand mixer to high and beat for an additional 4 minutes until the mixture is light and fluffy.
  • Spread the mousse on top of the ganache layer of the pie. It will be taller than the pie plate. You'll want to shape it like a domed mountain making sure it meets the chocolate crust and doesn't cover it up. 
  • Loosely cover the pie trying not to touch the mousse layer and place in the fridge overnight to set up. I would say at least let it set up for 5 hours before serving. 
  • Just before serving, add the chocolate whipped cream. 

Whipped Cream

  • Add the chocolate chips and 1/4 cup of heavy cream into a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds and stir. Repeat microwaving and stirring until the chocolate is smooth. Let cool to room temperature.
  • Add the remaining heavy cream into the same bowl we used before for whipped cream. Beat on medium until stiff peaks form.
  • Add the cooled chocolate mixture to the whipped cream. Fold in until combined.
  • Add the chocolate whipped cream into a piping bag fitted with the 1M piping tip.
  • Just before serving, pipe the whipped cream on top of the pie. You can also just use a spatula and spread it on top of the pie. My technique was piping shells on the edges of the pie. Added the second layer slightly overlapping the first and then a third. 
  • Load the chocolate curls on the top of the cake. 
  • Refrigerate until ready to serve.
