Nutella Oreo Mousse Pie

Hey- this is a quick recipe that has amazingly tasty results. So here's a quick post of a dessert you can whip up fast and ahead of time, and you can make a big pie for everyone, or split this into individual dishes for nicer-looking plating. Garnish with whatever you like- chopped nuts, chocolate- and make it your own. You could also use a different kind of crust, but I like the chocolate crust with the lighter filling. Let's do this. Warning, though: you may end up making this pie today!

Simple ingredients- fast prep!!
Cream together your nutella, cream cheese, vanilla, and pinch of salt.
And you get this fantastic chocolatey ness that you will want to eat with a spoon- try to resist!
Then fold in your cool whip.
Until you have your filling- doesn't look too appetizing in a bowl but it is delicious I promise!

Nutella Oreo Mousse Pie
-oreo crust, store bought or homemade by crushing cookies and mixing with melted butter and pressing in pan
-1 8 oz. block cream cheese, softened
-2/3 cup nutella
-1 teaspoon vanilla
-1/8 teaspoon salt
-8 oz. cool whip, mostly thawed (thaw in refrigerator)
Beat together the cream cheese, nutella, vanilla, and salt. Fold in thawed cool whip.
Pour into oreo crust, and refrigerated for 4-6 hours or overnight. Could also be made into individual servings.

Again, I must admit this is not the most appetizing dessert if you leave off all garnish and just make it to eat it like I did, but it tastes great and has a lot of potential for different versions and applications.

Savor it!
love, rue
