The biggest thing I noticed about my pre-preggo self and my post-preggo self (besides the obvious shifting of all things body) would be my cravings.
I used to love good old salty, savory snacks and appetizers. I was never really tempted by ordering desserts at a restaurant or I never ventured over to the dessert table at a party or wedding. I sometimes never even had a piece of the brides cake.
Now, I’m like – “Is that chick ever going to cut that dang cake!”
I just can’t say no.
I also never liked dark chocolate at all.
Now, I dream about it.
This pie helps with my new found addiction.
Dark Chocolate Mousse Pie
- 1 ready made graham cracker crust
- 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 3 Hershey bars (1.5 oz), chopped
- 3 Special Dark Hersey bars (1.5 oz.), chopped
- 1/3 cup heavy cream
- 8 ounce container of Cool Whip
Melt cream and chocolate in microwave in a microwave safe bowl for 45-60 seconds. Stir until chocolate is melted. If additional melting time is needed, melt for 10 more seconds.
In a stand mixer, cream sugar and cream cheese until smooth.
Next, in the mixer, add chocolate mixture to cream mixture, reserving around 1/4 cup of chocolate mixture for garnish.
On a slow speed, add cool whip to mixture.
Pour mixture into prepared crust, smooth top and drizzle with remaining chocolate sauce.
Refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
