Someone broke your heart. You walked by a bakery. It’s three o’clock and you’re staring at a computer. Whatever it is that flips the switch, you want chocolate and you want it now! I have just the thing. No loco-cocoa craving can stand up to a mousse pie whipped with rich cacao powder and dark chocolate chips. Spread it into a homemade graham cracker crust, and in less than 10 minutes you’ll have a creamy, low-calorie treat. Now wipe the drool from your face and get to mixin’!
