Chocolate Amaretto Mousse Pie

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by ChrisMc

My mom had this recipe for a long time and never got around to making it. Very smooth, creamy dessert - works any time of the year. Of course, if you don't want to make it as a pie, just make the mousse filling and chill in wine glasses. The prep time does not include the chilling time for the pie to set.

I went out to a nice restauraunt in metro atlanta, and for dessert I ordered the chocolate amaretto mousse. It was probably the best chocolate dessert I've ever tasted. When we had some friends overf one night I made this recipe but served it in cups instead of a pie crust. It was aMaZiNg! BETTER that at the restaurant. Of course everyone loved it.
