Since it’s Valentine’s Day, I couldn’t resist sharing a sweet red & pink dessert. This Berry Mousse Pie is probably one of the easiest icebox pies you’ll ever make. It’s perfect for anyone who wants to spend more time cuddling than cooking today and a foolproof option for the beginning chef looking to impress their sweetheart.
Also, the mousse (or “Pink Fluff” as my sisters and I called it as kids) works equally well without the pie crust as a sweet side dish.
Berry Mousse Pie
1 pkg strawberry jello
2/3 C boiling water
2 C ice cubes
1 pint strawberries, diced
1 tub Cool Whip, thawed
1 pre-made graham cracker crust
In a large bowl, whisk jello mix into boiling water until completely dissolved. Add ice cubes and stir for 2-3 minutes until jello thickens. Remove ice cubes and whisk in thawed Cool Whip.
Dice strawberries into bite-sized chunks and gently fold into mousse mixture. Pour mousse mixture into graham cracker crust. Refridgerate for 2-3 hours until mousse is solid, yet fluffy.

One taste of this Hot Fudge and I promise you will never buy the stuff in a jar again. It is so decadent and creamy you might just want to eat it with a spoon. To me, it tastes like melted brownie batter which is one of my weaknesses.
This Valentine’s Day, surprise your sweetie with a special dessert. Drizzle this hot fudge over ice cream, grilled pound cake, brownies, cheese cake…the possibilities are endless!
Hot Fudge Sauce
3 Squares (3 ounces) Semisweet Chocolate
1/4 Cup Butter
2/3 Cup Evaporated Milk
1/2 Cup Sugar
1 tsp. Vanilla
In a heavy medium saucepan melt chocolate and butter over low heat stirring constantly. Stir in Evaporated Milk and sugar. Cook and stir over medium hear until sugar is dissolved and mixture is slightly thickened and bubbly, stirring often. Remove from heat. Add vanilla and stir until smooth.
Store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. Although I will bet it won’t last that long!
