For desert last night i promised the boys Falling in Ove Chocolate Mousse Pie. It is meant to be one big pie but i did it as individual dishes, that way theres no ‘his is bigger than mine’ LOL Ben did the pouring….I also followed an English adaption recipe that didnt say whip the cream so mine was more runny than mousse! Heres the recipe i would follow in future….
Falling in Love Chocolate Mousse Pie
9-inch baked pastry shell
1 14-oz. can condensed milk (not evaporated)
2/3 C. water
1 (4 serving) pkg. chocolate pudding mix (not instant)
1 1-oz. square unsweetened chocolate
2 C. (1 pt.) whipping cream, stiffly whipped
In large saucepan, combine condensed milk, water and pudding mix; mix well. Add chocolate. Over medium heat, cook and stir rapidly until chocolate melts and mixture thickens. Remove from heat; beat until smooth. Cool. Chill thoroughly; stir. Fold in whipped cream. Pour into prepared pastry shell. Chill 4 hours until set.
As i have the boys off school poorly today im planning on finishing The Secret Life of Bees Book while we all snuggle on the sofa 🙂
