Chocolate Mousse Pipe-from my Grandmother’s recipe box

Chocolate Mousse Pipe-from my Grandmother's recipe box

Remember I told you how my Grandma used to serve either Pumpkin Pie or Mincemeat Pie for Thanksgiving and I always went without dessert here? It’s why I never had pumpkin until this cake.

Well when my grandma finally figured out she couldn’t change me, she started making a dessert with me in mind. I don’t know what changed her way, maybe I helped out in the kitchen with the dishes enough or maybe my grandpa convinced her to add another dessert. I don’t know. And honestly, I don’t care. I just remember the first time I helped to carry out the desserts to the dinning room and I was handed this Chocolate Mousse Pie to carry. I knew then, my grandma really loved me. Of course she loved me but, come on now, she made a dessert just for me. Every one else was getting along fine with those other choices.

I was probably 12-13 years old the first time this pie was served. It’s always held a special place in my heart.
