This was sweet, and rich (almost too much for me) but it made a lot of people at work very happy! I thought it was simple to put together but DEFINITELY took more than 30 minutes to prepare. Also I think that anyone making this might think about setting the pie, minus the chocolate mousse, out to soften a bit before serving, and then spreading the mousse over it before cutting it. When it's fresh from the fridge the caramel is really firm and a little hard to cut through.
