Pumpkin Chocolate Mousse Pie

Tonight I am going to a dinner party, and I was asked to bring a pumpkin dessert.  That is how this pumpkin chocolate mousse pie came about.  It’s got a chocolate pecan crust, a rich pumpkin mousse for the filling, and a chocolate drizzle on top.  So yum!!

You can tell by the picture that I may have gone a little crazy with the chocolate.  I’m sure the guests won’t complain!

This healthy pie may look fancy, but it’s super simple to whip up!  There is actually no baking required.  You can make it ahead of time and pull it out when you are ready to eat.  It happens to be vegan, gluten free AND paleo approved!

This pie would be a great dessert for Thanksgiving as well.  It’s a great alternative to traditional pumpkin pie and great for chocolate lovers! Since there is no baking required, making this leaves the oven free to cook all those yummy Thanksgiving eats. I hope you enjoy it!
