"I always test out recipes a couple of times before I serve them to other people, and I'm going to make this one for thanksgiving, with a few changes: 1) I felt the coffee and the almond flavors wer..." See moree too overpowering, so I left them out the second time. The chocolate is much better when it doesn't have to compete with other flavors. 2) I added four egg whites, instead of three, to the mousse part, to make it more airy. 3) I made my own crust out of chocolate graham crackers. 4) I also added gelatin to the topping to stabilize it, and I doubled the recipe for the topping because it wasn't enough the first time around. The gelatin creates an almost mousse-like consistency to the topping. Add some chocolate curls to the top of this pie and it will look like it came out of a fancy bakery. With these few changes this pie is perfect."

"I wish I could give this a higher rating, but five stars is as high as it goes! This is the best chocolate mousse pie I've ever had! Even better than in any restaurant I've ever had anything mousse in..." See more! It was easy to make and store, and I even made mine non-dairy using Rich's whipping cream. Everybody raved about the pie. Thanks!!"
