Mocha Mousse Pie

This is the pie that Doc, my husband makes and it is gone in no time. (He is the baker in the family). I don't care for it since I don't like the taste of coffee. But if you like mocha, you will like this pie.

Plan ahead…needs to chill

1-1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips, melted and slightly cooled

2 cups whipping cream

2 tablespoons instant coffee granules

2 tablespoons sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 chocolate crumb or graham cracker crust (9 inches)

Chocolate shavings (on top), optional

In a large microwave-safe bowl, melt chocolate chips; set aside to cool. In
a mixing bowl, beat cream, coffee granules, sugar and vanilla on low until
coffee and sugar are dissolved. Beat on high just until stiff peaks form. Set aside
1-1/2 cups to topping. Gradually fold remaining cream mixture into a cooled
chocolate until well blended. Pour into pie crust. Spread with reserved cream
mixture. Refrigerate for 3 hours. Garnish with chocolate shavings if desired.
Store in the refrigerator. Yield: 6-8 servings.
