*Sorry, I don't have this recipe written down yet.  You can just use Jell-O Cooked Chocolate Pudding, but substitute 1/4 of the milk with heavy cream to give a thicker pudding. I will update this post once I get a chance to record it.

Directions

Step 1
This can be a typical 9 inch round pie. Or, for a larger pie, double the recipes and make a rectangular pie in a 9x13 glass pan, or larger. The pictures are mixed between the 9 inch round and 9x13 inch rectangular glass pie.

Either size, layer the pie in this order:

Homemade Oreo Cookie Crust

Serves 1 8
Prep time 10 minutes
Website Kraft Foods

Ingredients

  • 24 Oreo Cookies
  • 1/4 cup Unsalted Butter (melted)

Note

Makes 1 pie crust.

Want to make a bigger batch like for a 9×13 pan? Just double this recipe. Easy.

Directions

Step 1
Crush Oreos
In a medium-sized bowl or a food processor, add the Oreo cookies and blend until the texture of coarse meal or crumbs. You can also put the cookie or cookie pieces into a large zip lock bag and use a rolling pin to crush.
Step 2
Add Melted Butter
Add the melted butter to the crushed cookies and blend until well combine.
Step 3
Press into pan
Place the ground crumb mixture into a pie pan and press onto the bottom and up the sides evenly. Try to make the crust about 1/8 inch evenly on bottom and sides. I use the back of a measuring cup to press the the Oreo mixture onto the pan.
Step 4
Refrigerate
Refrigerate the crust for at least an hour before you add the filling of your choice. This will help prevent crumbling when you want to serve it.

 

Decadent Dark Chocolate Mousse (no raw eggs)

Serves 8
Prep time 30 minutes
Cook time 10 minutes
Total time 40 minutes
By author Dish Ditty
This is heaven, just chocolate heaven, and it does not have any raw eggs like the traditional Chocolate Mousse recipe as made popular by Julia Child. It doesn't take long to make this and it's really easy. Really, it is.

Ingredients

  • 4 Egg Yolks
  • 1/4 cup Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 cup Semisweet Chocolate Chips
  • 2 1/2 cups Heavy Whipping cream (divided into 1 cup + 1.5 cups)

Directions

Step 1
Freeze your Bowl
Always FREEZE your bowl and whisk before whipping your cream. FREEZE it for at least 30 minutes before you start.
Step 2
In a small bowl, whisk the egg yolks until they are light and fluffy. Set aside
Step 3
In medium saucepan, heat 1 cup whipping cream and sugar until hot. Do not boil. Temper the egg yolk mixture by whisking in one spoonful slowly from the hot mixture to the egg yolks. Do this about 3-5 times, tempering the yolks so that they do not turn into scrambled eggs when you add it to the cream mixture.
Step 4
Slowly pour the tempered egg yolk mixture into the hot whipped cream, whisking constantly. Again, do not boil. Cook over low heat for about 5 minutes, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens. It should have the consistency of pudding.
Step 5
Combine
Stir in the vanilla, salt and chocolate chips. Make sure it is well combined. Refrigerate for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally to keep from clumping.
Step 6
Whisk Cream
Using your frozen, chilled bowl and whisk, beat the remaining 1 1/2 cups of whipping cream on high speed until it’s stiff.
Step 7
Fold do not stir
FOLD IT! DO NOT STIR! This is the most critical step. You want to fold the two mixtures together. To fold, use a wide spatula or spoon, and lift the items from the bottom around and to the top. You don’t stir it in. It will look like nothing is happening at first, and this is ok. The motion consists of cutting vertically through the mixture and sliding across the bottom of the bowl and up the side and then turning over. Repeat until ingredients are incorporated.
Step 8
Serve
Place in serving dishes and serve. Top with Stabilized Whipped Cream.
