Peppermint White Chocolate Mousse Pie

White Chocolate Peppermint Mousse Pie

Today is the conclusion of Pie Week.  I hope you enjoyed all of the pies that were shared over the week.  Brandy and Audra did a great job putting everything together.  Today there is an amazing giveaway thanks to Kitchen Aid.  Don’t miss the other giveaways either; OXO and Le Creuset, Cabot and King Arthur Flour.   So many great things you can win, I have to say I am just slightly jealous!

White Chocolate Peppermint Mousse Pie

Tis’ the season for all things peppermint.  Once November hits, I am ready for peppermint in all forms.  I have already made 1 kind of peppermint cookie to share, and have another one I am working on.  So hopefully you enjoy peppermint as much as I do!  On my husbands side of the family we always have Grasshopper pie for the holidays.  That is still one of my favorites, but the white chocolate mousse in this pie, really gives it a run for its money.

White Chocolate Peppermint Mousse Pie

I made this white chocolate peppermint mousse pie to take to cooking club this month.  To say it was a hit, is kind of an understatement.  Everyone raved about this pie.  I brought the few leftovers home, and my 8 year old went crazy for it.  It has a peppermint white chocolate mousse in an Oreo cookie crust, topped with fresh whipped cream, and garnished candy canes.  Definitely a pretty enough pie to celebrate with.   I used Oreo’s for the crust, but if you have other chocolate cookies they would be perfect too.

  3. I am with you, I love peppermint once the holidays hit!! This pie is just perfect in every way.

  4. It sounds like a Peppermint Patty but looks so, so much prettier.

  5. Mmmm I could eat this whole pie in one sitting!

  6. Oh my gosh! I could eat this whole pie! It looks incredible! You did a beautiful job on it!!

  7. Yummy!!!

  10. YUM!

  11. I love that this pie would be great for Thanksgiving and through the holidays. So pretty, too!

  12. Your peppermint mousse pie sound delish! What fun giveaway too.

  13. Oh my gosh, peppermint white chocolate mousse?? That’s my new favorite thing ever, and it must happen here asap. My love for white chocolate knows no bounds :)

  14. What a perfect holiday pie! Bet it did not last long at your house!

  15. Looks like an amazing pie! Just one fussy point. It would be nice to see a measurement or weight on the 24 Oreos. I tend to grind a whole bag at one time to save time and it isn’t always easy determining the amount based on a cookie count. Thanks for a great recipe option!!

    • The amount of Oreos is pretty flexible for this recipe, it really just matters how thick you want your crust. I think it was 2 rows of cookies when I did it. Thanks!

  16. A perfect Christmas pie. :D I bet it’s so fluffy and light…like you’re eating a minty cloud. Ahh…
