This Chocolate Mousse Pie In A Jar is a recipe that was created specially for a good friend of mine, Jeri Walker-Becket from What Do I Know?  She has been having a rough go it lately, so this is my gift to her.

This Chocolate Mousse Pie In A Jar really is a fun recipe.  The basis of this creation is from Kraft Foods, however, the rest of this recipe is my own creation.

Chocolate Mousse Pie In A Jar

Chocolate Mousse Pie In A Jar,


  • 15 to 20 Oreo cookies, crushed
  • 1 3.9oz. Package of JELL-O Chocolate Instant Pudding
  • 1-1/4 cups cold whole milk
  • 1/4 cup Crème De Cocoa
  • 3 cups COOL WHIP Whipped Topping, thawed (reserve 1 cup for topping)
  • 6  8oz. Wide mouth canning jars


Chocolate Mousse Pie In A Jar, findingourwaynow.comPlace 2 to 3 tablespoons of crushed Oreo cookies into the bottom of each jar and tap down the crumbs with a spoon to form a crust and set the jars aside.  Whisk the pudding mix, milk and Crème De Cocoa in medium bowl for about 2 minutes. With a wooden spoon, fold 2 cups of Cool Whip, 1 cup at a time into the pudding mixture until it’s combined.  Spoon or pipe the mousse into the prepared jars. Top or pipe on remaining Cool Whip (sprinkle leftover Oreo Cookie crumbs if desired). Refrigerate for at least 20 minutes.

Notes:  Don’t even consider using Sugar Free/Fat Free instant pudding. It does not work. If you prefer not to use a Liqueur, add 1/4 of milk in its place. You could substitute the Crème de Cocoa for Crème De Mint for a mint chocolate pie or Baily’s Irish Crème, Kahlua; any type of liqueur you desire. So be creative and have some fun. The amount of cool whip you use to top the pies is up to you. You may use whipped cream as a topping in the place of Cool Whip. It’s just as good.

As you can tell this is a super simple recipe. It looks so pretty and it’s as delicious as it looks when it’s all said and done. I know my helper and taste tester thought so too on all counts.

Chocolate Mousse Pie In A Jar, findingourwaynow.comThe cool part is this makes yet again a great gift from your kitchen. You can get pretty creative with this Chocolate Mousse Pie In A Jar, which only adds to the fun. Enjoy.

    Looks like a wonderful treat, Susan. I’ve never met a chocolate mousse that I didn’t like. :-)

    • Susan P. Cooper

      Me either Doreen … LOL. This one is especially good. :)

  • Jon Jefferson

    I like the use of the Oreos. You don’t often see those as a crust ingredient. We recently ran across chocolate grahm crackers that my wife wants me to use for a cheese cake crust. Aside from the creamy center I wonder how Oreos would do for a cheese cake crust (probably as a no bake cheese cake).

    • Susan P. Cooper

      Hi Jon, The Oreo cookies as a crust would work very well. When you crust them with the filling, it really helps create a yummy non bake crust. :)

  • Elizabeth Scott

    I have to say I am the luckiest person I know. I get to taste all of Susan’s wonderful creations and this one is definitely one of my favorites. Who doesn’t love chocolate? It was so easy to make and absolutely something you could serve at a dinner party.

    • Susan P. Cooper
