with an Oreo cookie crust. Yup.
I know what you’re thinking, ummm Amy, isn’t this a diet blog? Aren’t you supposed to be giving us healthy/low calorie recipes? Well yes, yes I am. And this treat only has 125 calories. Low calorie and you’re welcome.
I was trying to imitate the Marie Calendar’s Chocolate Satin Pie. Did you know that one slice of chocolate satin pie has, and get ready, 690 calories?!! (!!!!) Yes you read that right. When I saw that it made me nauseous, because I have definitely put back a few slices of chocolate satin pie. Now, I will admit I don’t think I have eaten a whole slice at a time, it’s a bit rich for the quantity they give you. But I have definitely eaten a solid half of a slice and that is still 345 calories. Definitely too much if you’re trying to lose weight. The serving size of my mousse pie is obviously smaller than the Marie Calendar’s version, at about the size of a brownie. But trust me, it is not so small that it wont fully indulges your sweet tooth.
The second great thing about this recipe, besides the calorie content. It only has 3 ingredients. 3. And it comes together in right around 3 minutes. Seriously.
- 12 Oreo cookies
- 1 tub Cool Whip light
- 4 oz or ½ cup sugar free hot fudge- I use Smucker's brand
- Put Oreo cookies in a Ziploc bag and use a mallet or something hard to crush into crumbs. Can also be thrown in your food processor.
- Press crumbs into a glass 9x13 baking dish, or something of similar size, set aside
- If hot fudge is at room temperature, heat in microwave for about 10 seconds just to liquefy a bit. Be careful not to make hot or you'll melt the cool whip. If in refrigerator, heat for about 30 seconds to liquefy. Again if too hot, give a good stir and let sit as needed. You want to be liquid and just warm.
- In a bowl carefully fold together fudge and cool whip (I used almost all of my cool whip, reserving just a bit for a topping as shown in photo, but that's up to you.)
- Be careful not to stir to vigorously, or you'll break down the cool whip. I also stirred just enough to have ribbons or swirls of chocolate throughout, but its up to you how much you want to combine.
- Spoon mixture over cookie crumbs crust and gently spread to distribute evenly.
- Place pan in freezer to let set. This part is optional, but it will help you with serving and portioning. You can scoop and eat right away, it just wont come out as nice and clean. Again, totally up to you!
Store in freezer to preserve
