Ingredients – Brownie Layer

  • 2 9-inch pie crusts, premade or homemade (I used chocolate, but regular is great as well)
  • 1 1/2 cups Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Cocoa Powder
  • 1/2 tsp. Baking Powder
  • 3 Eggs
  • 3/4 cup Vegetable Oil
  • 3/4 cup Oil
  • 1/2 tsp. Salt
  • 3 tsp. Vanilla Extract

Directions – Brownie Layer

  1. Preheat oven to 350 Degrees F. Combine all of the ingredients until well-mixed and divide between the two pie crusts. Bake at 350 Degrees F until toothpick inserted comes out mostly cleaned, about 10-20 minutes (check often). Do not overcook.
  2. Remove and allow to cool.

  • I just made the mousse and it is so rich and creamy! I love it. However, I really recommend you add pictures and/or a description of how to cook the yolk mixture on the stove. I had no idea what I was looking for to consider it “cooked” and a picture or description would’ve been so helpful. Thank you for the recipe!
