There are no words to describe this incredible pie! I have had several French Silk Pies in my life but none of them compare to this one. The texture is incredible and the taste divine... and I'm not even a chocolate person!
1. CRUST- I used a store-bought, pre-made, non-refrigerated chocolate pie crust (not Oreo). It was an excellent choice and added a great taste and texture.
2. MEASUREMENTS- Make sure to only fill the pie 1/2 or 3/4 at the most with the mousse. The rest will be whipped cream, which balances the richness of the mousse. Apply the whipped cream right before serving. I sprinkled milk chocolate chips on the top.
3. I HIGHLY recommend filling both pie crusts with the mousse right away and not leaving any extra mousse in the bowl to refrigerate overnight. I made the mistake of only filling 1 pie and then leaving the rest of the mousse for a second pie the next day and the texture was TOTALLY different. Once you fill the pie with the mousse, it's fine to refrigerate the pie and cover with foil. You just don't want to refrigerate only the mousse in a bowl overnight. The texture becomes much more dense and not as decadent. The texture is 50% of what makes this pie so amazing, so I highly recommend taking this particular piece of advice.
I think everyone who's considering making this recipe absolutely should. You'll be so glad you did.
