Cherry Chocolate Mousse Pie Recipe | Ft Chocolove

Vegan.

Say hello to one of the most indulgent desserts yet.

A chewy and rich chocolate almond brownie base, a silky smooth mousse filling topped with chocolate ganache, cream, and fresh cherries. This dessert should come with a warning, it's that tasty! 

The filling uses tofu which gives this pie an extra creamy and light mousse.

This recipe is in collaboration with Chocolove.

I chose to create a chocolate and cherry mousse pie using their exquisite 'Cherry and Almond' chocolate for the rich brownie base and the 'Strong Dark' chocolate for the extra silky mousse topping.  I added fresh cherries inside the mousse and on top. 
It not only tastes divine it looks amazing too.  Serve with fresh dairy-free cream for some extra yumminess!

...

To make the brownie base
Step 1- Pre-heat your oven to 180 degrees, gas mark 4 and line an 8 inch round tin with greaseproof proof paper.

Step 2- Place the chocolate into a glass bowl and place on top of a saucepan with water-filled half of the way up making a bain-marie. 
Gently simmer until the chocolate has completely melted.

Step 3- Sieve the cocoa powder and flour into a large mixing bowl & stir in the sugar.
 Mix until fully combined.

Step 4- Pour the vanilla extract, oil, dairy-free milk, and melted chocolate into the dry ingredients and mix until combined.

Step 5- Add in the chopped almonds and fold in (optional).

Step 6- Spoon the batter into the lined tin, making sure you get into the edges.

Step 7- Place the tin into the middle of the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes. 
To make sure the brownie is cooked, place a sharp knife or skewer into the center until it comes out clean.
If it's not fully cooked, pop it back into the oven for an extra few minutes.

Step 8- Once baked, place the brownie on a wire rack and leave to cool fully.

To make the filling
Step 1- Place the chocolate into a glass bowl and place on top of a saucepan with water-filled half of the way up making a bain-marie. 

Gently simmer until the chocolate has completely melted.

Step 2- Drain the tofu and place into a high speed blender, along with the melted chocolate and whizz up until fully combined and smooth.

Step 3- Pour the filling directly ontop of the brownie base.

Step 4- Press chopped cherries into the filling (optional).

Step 5- Place the tin into the fridge until firm.
This will takes 3-4 hours, I like to leave mine overnight.


Step 6- Once set, remove from the tin and serve.

I served my pie with a drizzle of vegan chocolate ganache, whipped cream, cherries and grated chocolate.

Keep refrigerated, and best enjoyed within 3 days.
