"This is the ultimate chocolate experience. The recipe comes from Bon Appetit. The only things I do differently when preparing are to use a store bought chocolate crumb crust that I blind bake, brushed with egg white, for 5 min ay 375, and add a bit of sugar and vanilla to the whipped cream that goes on top. I also do not use the food processor method for the mousse. I just bring the cream to a boil, then pour it over the chocolate, vanilla, and salt; then stir until melted."

"I have been making this pie for over 15 years and it is always gets rave reviews. It is a little work because I melt the chocolate on the stove with a double boiler, but worth it. The type of chocolate used makes a big difference in flavor. I use ghirardelli semi-sweet dark chocolate chips. So my pie is dark chocolate in flavor and very rich. You do not need a big piece, so it will usually serve about 20 people. Next time I make it, I am thinking about adding a thin layer of black raspberry jam on the bottom."
