For this pie I cheat and use a pre-made oreo pie shell. If I buy a package of oreos they will get eaten in the blink of an eye. No one has tried to eat a pre-made oreo crust yet. Yet, being the keyword here. Combine 1/2 cup of heavy cream, 1 cup of chocolate chips, a teaspoon of vanilla and a pinch of salt over a double boiler or in a microwave safe bowl. Heat until the chocolate chips are melted and everything blends together smooth. If using a microwave just keep a close eye on it so the chocolate doesn’t scorch. Let the chocolate mixture cool to room temperature.
Beat 1 cup of heavy cream and 1/8 cup sugar until stiff peaks form. Carefully fold the whipped cream into the chocolate mixture. Make sure to fold, not stir.
Put the chocolate mousse into the oreo pie shell.
Refrigerate for at least 6 hours. Garnish with additional whipped cream and chocolate shavings or jimmies if you would like.
