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


Directions:

With an electric mixer on high speed, beat the meringue powder and water in a medium bowl until glossy peaks form, 2 – 3 minutes. 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..

Hey guys, I just wanted to say thanks for the lighter recipes, unfortunately I have to cook differently for my health and was missing Paula’s dishes but thanks to Bobby I can enjoy them again!

Paula, I am glad to know that I am not the only person who makes Easter Baskets for their adult children and mail them across the United States. My Daughter lives in Long Beach, CA and I not only sent her a basket but her husband and my granddaughter Reese. We also buy special Russel Stover Bunnies for each child too. My husband has the list in his phone... Sara .. Cookies 'n Crème.... Sidney and Stephen.. Peanut Butter Etc. It one of my favorite things to do for my kids.. no matter how old they get. And passing it along to my Grandchildren. It's even more special to me knowing we share a family tradition. Blessings and Happy Easter!!
