You’ve been invited to a Passover dinner or a Passover seder and you don’t know what to bring. This chocolate mousse pie with coconut macaroon crust is your answer. Every bite of this Passover dessert delivers rich, silky chocolate with a chewy coconut macaroon finish. This chocolate Passover dessert is by far the best way that I’ve ever found to serve coconut macaroons.
Passover Pie Tips
This chocolate mousse contains raw eggs, so I highly recommend using Safest Choice pasteurized eggs to prepare it. You don’t want to be responsible for killing Grandma from an unsafe raw egg – that’s a great way not to get a Passover invitation next year. Safest Choice eggs work just as well as other eggs, but without the worry. Grandma thanks you in advance.
This chocolate mousse recipe calls for heavy whipping cream. If you are bringing this pie to a seder, you should replace the heavy whipping cream with water since you can’t have dairy at a meat-based seder meal. For other meals during Passover, check with your host to see if the meal will be dairy or not before deciding whether to use heavy whipping cream or water. Likewise, replace the milk chocolate with a bittersweet chocolate for non-dairy meals.

The chocolate mousse recipe I used is from a version of Pierre Hermé and Dorie Greenspan’s chocolate mousse that I found on Serious Eats.
