Chocolate Mousse Pie
This recipe is from Hannah's boyfriend's mother. I haven't made it yet but loved it at her house. Mmm!
1 stick unsalted butter melted
1 lb semi sweet chocolate
2 fresh eggs room temperature
4 egg yolks room temperature
4 egg whites room temperature
6 T confection sugar
4 cups heavy whipping cream
Crust: mix wafer crumbs with butter and press into 10 inch springform pan. Place in the refrigerator for one hour to set.
Filling: melt chocolate in double boiler and cool until lukewarm, then add 2 eggs and mix.
Add 4 egg yolks and mix.
Whip 2 cups whipped heavy cream and confection sugar to soft peaks.
Beat 4 egg whites until stiff.
Slowly mix the cream and egg white mixtures together. Fold the chocolate and cream/egg whites mix together. Pour filling into the crust.
Cover pie with wax paper and set in refrigerator overnight.
Next day: whip the 2 remaining cups of heavy cream. Spread on pie (after removing the wax paper) and then undo the springform and serve.
