Bobby’s Lighter Frozen Chocolate Mousse Pie

Ingredients:
1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup low-fat milk
2 tablespoons dark corn syrup
2 tablespoons chocolate-flavored liqueur
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons meringue powder *
6 tablespoons water
1 1/2 cups fat-free frozen whipped topping, thawed
1 9-inch pre-baked pie crust
1/2 (1-ounce) square semisweet chocolate, grated

With a rubber spatula, gently fold the beaten meringue and whipped topping into the cooled chocolate mixture until no streaks of white remain. Spoon into the prepared crust; spread evenly. Sprinkle with the grated chocolate. Cover with plastic wrap and freeze until frozen, at least 3 hours .

Bobby,
You should write a book.  I have not found a recipe that I do not like.  I have Type 2 diabetes and need to keep my carbs under 45 and for the most part, all of these recipes fit that criteria.  Thanks so much….write a book on the lighter side of Paula..love your Mom..
