How early is it before you starting thinking of a special dessert for Valentine’s Day?
It’s never too early for me to think of something sweet to serve your sweet people in your life.
How about a easy as pie (pun intended) Chocolate Mousse Pie. It’s no bake, only a few fresh ingredients- and BAM! You’ve got a gourmet dessert ready to serve. Even tastes better if you make it the day before.

Chocolate Mousse Pie
- 5 oz. semi sweet chocolate
- 3 egg whites
- 1 pint heavy cream
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- Chocolate shavings for garnish
- 1 9″ pre-baked pie shell
Melt the semi sweet chocolate and mix until smooth. Set aside to cool. In a clean bowl with a clean whisk, mix together the egg whites until stiff peaks form. About 2-3 minutes. Set aside. Clean the whisk and bowl and whip the heavy cream until soft peaks form, then add the powdered sugar and vanilla.
Gently fold the cooled melted chocolate with 1/2 the whipped cream. Then fold in the egg whites without deflating them, and pour chocolate into the pie shell, smoothing out the filling evenly. Top with remaining heavy cream and garnish with chocolate shavings or dust with cocoa powder.
