Servings: 10 to 12
This impressive and insanely delicious dessert requires only six ingredients, but that can be your little secret. Italian chocolate-filled sandwich cookies make a crust reminiscent of a Kit Kat bar; you can also use chocolate wafer cookies. For the spiky chocolate garnish shown here, see the video How to Make Chocolate Shards.
Make Ahead Tips
You can make the crust and fill it with the mousse up to 2 days ahead. Refrigerate, covered. Whip the cream for the topping and top the pie just before serving.
1/19/21 - This is easy, 2nd time I have made it. However, 30 minutes in refrigerator to cool is much too long. It was so difficult to fold & my wrist & arm are hurting. There are little pieces of chocolate shards through out. Will adjust next time. Also needed much more butter for the crumbs.

My go to dessert for company and it's fairly easy. I get a lot of compliments on the crust (quadratinis are easily found at Trader Joe's, Cost Plus, etc.) But I love the mousse... of course, the best quality chocolate is a must. Just heavenly scrumptious.
