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.

I usually blame myself when reviews are positive and I have a flop. This time is no exception. I don’t know where I messed up, but the mousse was dense and the texture was unpleasant. The topping was bland and the crust fell apart. I am not brave enough to try this again. Bummer.
This couldn't have been easier and it tasted incredible. I used a little extra butter for the crust as I used Famous wafers. I'll probably use a touch more next time (and there will be a next time) so the crust holds just a tad better. I highly recommend this--I served company and they thought it was fantastic (and probably more work than it was).
All I can say is "WOW"! A simple delicious chocolate dessert. The whole family loves it. Found Quadratini chocolate wafers at Whole Foods. I found the crust too thin for my taste so I double that part.
Was so excited to make this cake as the reviews were wonderful and the cake looked so delicious.Unfortunately, did not work for me.Couldn't find the right cookies for the crust where I live so used Oreo crumbs and had the same problem as one of the other reviewers in that it did not hold. My crust disintegrated in the pan.Must have left my mousse in the fridge too long as it was solid and also left pieces of chocolate, as per another reviewer.Pretty sure my chocolate was too dark and would not be considered semi sweet, as packages not labelled in that way here in Finland.Brought it for a bbq and left with 3/4 of the pie :(!
