Chocolate Amaretto Mousse Pie

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Dee514

If you love chocolate and almonds, you'll love this! A very rich, decadent dessert I serve for special occasions. I imagine the leftovers could be frozen but, I'm not sure as there has never been any left over! Prep time does not include 3-5 hour chilling time.

YUM!! Everybody loved it. I took the cheating way out of the crust though they had oreo cookie crumb crusts on sale. I think it would be lovely with a gramcracker crust as well, and maybe a tad bit less rich so I could enjoy a second slice without a major sugar rush!
