The Minimalist Baker blog released a recipe for a chocolate mousse pie that features a crunchy pretzel crust. While salty and sweet is a classic flavor combination, it can be hard to achieve the perfect balance between these two elements. This recipe manages to achieve the perfect blend of sweet and savory through the addition of pretzels.
The chocolate mousse pie is dairy-free and vegan-friendly. The filling is made from a combination of traditionally sweet ingredients, including coconut cream, dark chocolate and natural peanut butter. To balance out the ultra-sweet filling, the crust is made from a mixture of pretzels, vegan butter and cane sugar. The end result is a creamy chocolate treat with an unusually salty crust.
Because the recipe is made from natural and organic ingredients, the pie is a nutritious alternative to other sweet desserts.
