Thanksgiving Classic Desserts

Decadent Chocolate Mousse Pie is as easy as it is delicious! Make the pie the day before so filling has time to set, then prepare the whipped cream just before serving. Everyone loves a fresh dollop of homemade whipped cream!

COOKIE CRUST
INGREDIENTS
16-17 Chocolate Sandwich Cookies, about 7 ounces
1/4 Cup Unsalted Butter

EQUIPMENT
Food Processor
9? Pie Pan
Measuring Cups
Microwave-Safe Bowl
Spatula

NOTES
If you do not have a food processor, use a large plastic bag to hold the cookies and a rolling pin to smash them to crumbs. Be gentle and leave a corner of the bag open for air to escape because a bag blowout can be messy! Chill crust in refrigerator while you prepare the filling.

INSTRUCTIONS
1. Place the butter in a small microwave-safe bowl.  Microwave on high in short 20-second increments until butter is melted.
2. Add cookies to food processor and pulse about one minute until you have fine crumbs.
3. Add melted butter to food processor bowl.  Fold in ingredients with spatula until it resembles wet sand.
4. Place crumbs in 9 inch pie pan and press into a crust that is 1/4 to 1/8 inch thick.
5. Wrap crust and pan in plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator for up to 2 days and in the freezer for up to a week.

CHOCOLATE MOUSSE FILLING
INGREDIENTS
1 Cup Whole Milk
1/2 Cup Pasteurized Egg Product
2 Tablespoons Sugar
Pinch of Salt
10 Ounces Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips
1 Tablespoon Coffee Liqueur, optional
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract

EQUIPMENT
Small Saucepan
Blender
Stove Top
Measuring Cups and Spoons

NOTES
Pasteurized egg product is a safe alternative to using raw eggs. However, if you have access to very fresh eggs, feel free to substitute 2 whole eggs for the egg product.

INSTRUCTIONS
1. Add pasteurized egg product, chocolate chips, vanilla, coffee liqueur, and salt to blender.  Blend on high for 1-2 minutes until chocolate chips are broken up.
2. Combine milk and sugar in small saucepan and heat to simmering over medium high heat.  The sugar helps keep the milk from sticking and burning but stir often.
3. With the blender on medium speed, drizzle in hot milk.  Mixture should loosen up as heat melts the chocolate.  Blend on high for 1 minute.
4. Pour into individual serving cups or into cooled pie crust.  Allow to set for at least 2-3 hours in refrigerator.

WHIPPED CREAM
INGREDIENTS
1 Cup Heavy Cream, Chilled
2 Tablespoons Confectioners Sugar
1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract

EQUIPMENT
Electric Mixer
Measuring Cups and Spoons

INSTRUCTIONS
1. For maximum volume and ease in whipping, put bowl, cream, and beater blades into the freezer for 5-10 minutes.
2. Add cream, vanilla, and sugar to mixing bowl.
3. Start on low speed and gradually increase as cream begins to thicken.  This should only take 3-4 minutes.  If you see any clumping, stop immediately as it is beginning to turn to butter.
4. Spoon or pipe across pie just prior to serving.

Finally, just slice, serve and enjoy!

Pillsbury Sweet Moments Giveaway

This giveaway is now over. The winner is Ellie. Congrats!

I love chocolate.  I use to crave it ALL the time when I was pregnant.  However, 3 years later (since my last pregnancy), I still crave the stuff.  However, I found the best thing EVER to take care of my chocolate cravings:  Pillsbury Sweet Moments.  Pillsbury recently introduced two new ways to enjoy life’s little luxuries with Sweet Moments Bite-Size and Molten Lava Brownies!  These are available in the refrigerated baked goods section of your local grocery store. The Bite-Size Brownies, which are layered with either rich caramel or fudge and chocolaty coating, are just the right size to grab and go for a quick pick-me-up. They’re ready to eat, so are ready right when the craving strikes – no preparation necessary! At 60 calories per brownie, they’re just enough to satisfy your sweet tooth.  There’s also the Sweet Moments Molten Lava Brownie.  These are in single-serve bowls and are also available in rich caramel and fudge varieties. Each are covered in decadent chocolate or creamy caramel and topped with a chocolatey drizzle. After only 15 seconds in the microwave, the brownie bowls are warm and ready to enjoy.
