5 Ingredient Chocolate Mousse Pie

Chocolate is not one of my favorite foods by any means, but Mr. Thyme to Beet that is another story.  He loves chocolate and in particular chocolate mousse pie.  Whenever we go out for a “fancy” dinner, it seems we always share chocolate mousse if it is on the menu.  I have grown to like chocolate over the last couple years.  This chocolate mousse recipe contains items you probably already have in your pantry.  I always keep them on hand so that I can whip up one of these pies in a flash.  It is great for entertaining as well.

5 Ingredient Chocolate Mousse Pie

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 ½ cup miniature marshmallows
  • 1 (7 ounce) bar milk chocolate candy
  • ½ cup milk
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream (Tip: keep cold until whipping, forms peaks faster)
  • 1 (9 inch) pre-baked pie shell or graham cracker crust

Directions:

Heat marshmallows, chocolate candy, and milk in a saucepan over low heat until marshmallows and chocolate are melted, stirring constantly. Allow mixture to cool completely.

Beat heavy cream in a large bowl until stiff peaks form (I use my stand mixer for this). Lift your beater or whisk straight up: the whipped cream will form sharp peaks. Gently fold cooled chocolate mixture in whipped cream until well mixed; pour into baked pie shell. Refrigerate until set, about 3 hours.
