Chocolate Hazelnut Mousse Mix
Our Chocolate Hazelnut Mousse Mix, made with Ghiradelli® chocolate and the rich flavor of hazelnuts, is so smooth it melts in your mouth. It’s used here as the base for Chocolate Hazelnut Rocky Road Mousse Pie. This kind of pie is sometimes called a freezer pie or no-bake cheesecake. Whatever you call it, it makes a wonderful dessert for anyone who likes chocolate and nuts. It’s also amazingly easy for as complex as it looks when it’s sliced. See RECIPES for directions.
