Chocolate Mousse Pie

Are you ready for the best chocolate mousse pie you've ever eaten. I'm serious. THE BEST. Its rich, creamy, and chocolatey. And its lightened with a mascarpone cream topping. This is your new holiday pie, everyone will love it!

Chocolate Mousse Pie

1 pre-baked Pie Crust
2 Eggs, separated
1/2 teaspoons Vinegar
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1/2 cup Granulated Sugar
2 cups Semi-Sweet Chocolate, chopped
1/2 cup Milk
3 cups Heavy Cream
1 cup Mascarpone
1 cup Granulated Sugar
Chocolate Shavings

1. In a stand mixer beat together egg whites, vinegar, and salt until stiff. Gradually add 1/2 cup of sugar and continue beating until stiff. Spread meringue over bottom and up sides of pre-cooked pie shell. Bake in 325° oven for 15-18 minutes until lightly golden. Set aside and cool.

2. Melt the chopped chocolate with milk in the microwave for 30 second increments stirring after each. Lightly beat egg yolks and whisk into chocolate mixture until well blended. Spread 4 tablespoons of chocolate mixture over cooked meringue. Place the rest of the chocolate in the fridge to chill.

3. Beat together heavy cream, mascarpone, and 1 cup of sugar until very thick. Divide in half. Fold one half into the chilled chocolate and spoon this mixture evenly over the chocolate painted pie crusts. Add the rest of the cream/mascarpone mixture on top. Top with chocolate shavings. Chill for at least 4 hours before serving.
