Cool Whip Chocolate Mousse Pie with Nuts

If you love sweet desserts like frozen chocolate macadamia mousse pie, white chocolate mousse pie or Cool Whip chocolate mousse pie, you should enjoy this chocolate cake recipe with fresh fruit.

This chocolate mousse pie is a combination of chocolate pudding, chocolate, cream cheese, cream and fresh fruit. The sides of the cake are decorated with vanilla frosting and chopped nuts. You can make your own crust if you like but using a readymade Graham cracker crust is easier. If you are making your own, you can either just have a bottom crust or have a bottom and side crust.

This is a stripy chocolate mousse recipe and you can that effect by adding melted chocolate to some of the chocolate pudding mixture and cream cheese to the rest. This gives you two different flavors of filling, as well as a striped look. This chocolate mousse pie is a wonderful dessert. The chocolate flavor makes it sinful and the fruit makes it healthy, so you can enjoy the best of both worlds!

Serve this chocolate mousse pie ice cold with some Cool Whip on the side. Not all dessert recipes with fruit are made with gelatin and this delicious Cool Whip chocolate mousse pie is a great example of how you can use instant pudding to make a delicious, fruity cake recipe.
