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.

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.
Absolutely delicious! Everyone loved it, including me and it goes to my "Go To" dessert list. However, you definitely need to use more butter to bind the cookies if using Famous as I did. The crust fell apart when serving. I used 3 tablespoons of butter and it wasn't enough so I would say 4 T. at least, or perhaps use Oreos as other people have said.
Fabulous! For the crust I used up some graham crackers that had been in the pantry since I made a cheesecake, and threw in some Pecan Sandies for good measure. Otherwise, I followed the recipe and made the most delicious and easy dessert ever. Will make again and again, thanks Fine Cooking!
I was ready to try this recipe. Perfect for summer heat wave. However I didn’t make it because I couldn’t find the featured cookies and didn’t have time for a test run. I think it’s fine to use unique products, but wish you would also recommend a substitute that is commonly available.
