I discovered a fast recipe for a delectable chocolate mousse some years ago and thought it might make a good filling for a pie. The chocolate lovers in our family endorse this scrumptious dessert, saying that it "melts in your mouth"! —Keri Scofield Lawson, Fullerton, California

"Not quite sweet enough for me. Even after loading it up with whipped cream. If you like dark chocolate flavor this is the pie for you"

"My 11-yr-old daughter was able to complete this recipe independently, which attests to its ease in preparation; but the chocolate flavor was a mite too intense for our family. Don't misunderstand- the texture was perfect and for a true chocoholic, you couldn't find a richer dessert. It just wasn't right for our family."

"This pie was easy, and amazingly delicious. I used Ghiardelli dark chocolate chips, which gave it a wonderful dark chocolate flavor. I will definitely be making this again."
