Falling In Love Chocolate Mousse Pie

Remember the post about the movie Waitress I wrote a couple days ago? Remember the pie recipe from the movie that I shared with you? Well this is that pie. That delicious, amazing pie. 

I asked people on Facebook what recipe they'd like to see me do next, given the option between this pie and apple hand-pies. They chose this, and oh am I ever glad they did. 

So here's the recipe once again, now with my very own pictures and my own little notes added in. 

-1 9-inch pastry shell, baked
-1 14oz. can condensed milk (not evaporated milk)
-2/3 cup water
-1 (4 serving) package of chocolate pudding mix (not instant- the kind you have to cook first)
-1 1oz. square unsweetened chocolate
-2 cups (1 pint) whipping cream, stiffly whipped

 Just after the pudding has thickened

Folding in the Whipped Cream

1. Make sure to pre-bake your pie shell before even thinking of starting the filling. Bake 5-10 mins, with pie beads or dried kidney beans on parchment paper in the crust. Trust me, you'll thank me if you do this first. 
2. In a large saucepan, combine condensed milk, water and pudding mix; mix well. Add chocolate. 
3.Over medium heat, cook and stir rapidly until the chocolate melts and the mixture thickens. Once chocolate is melted you may have to let it cook for 30 seconds without stirring to let it naturally thicken.  
4. Remove from heat; beat until smooth- small bubbles are fine, we just want to make sure that the melted chocolate and pudding mix are fully incorporated.  
5.Cool on stove top for a few minutes, until it doesn't hurt to touch, then chill thoroughly in the fridge- just put the whole pot in the fridge to save on dishes.  
6. Fold in whipped cream. Pour in prepared pastry shell. Chill for 4 hours in fridge or until set.
