I like to serve this delicious mousse with a topping of fresh sliced strawberries or other local berries. "

"Theo Chocolate in Seattle is the only organic, fair-trade, beans-to-bar chocolate made in the United States. It’s exceptionally good, too, and I’m not just saying that because I’m a part owner! If you can’t find it for this recipe, substitute a 70 percent cacao dark chocolate you know and love." — Tom Douglas

Chocolate Mousse Pie
I am including this pie for my brother, who requested this dessert for every family event from the time he was tiny until he entered his 20s and lost his taste for sweets (a strange, inexplicable event in our family that I feel validates my childhood taunting that he was adopted). If you feel like a milk chocolate mousse, substitute milk chocolate for the bittersweet.  Click here to see Pick-Up-and-Go Pies.
