Hershey’s Sundae Pie has three layers; the crust, cream cheese filling, and the chocolate mousse. Extra whipping cream on top makes this pie more appetizing.
It has intensified chocolate flavor from Hershey’s cocoa powder added to the crust, chocolate mousse powder for the top layer, and a drizzle of chocolate syrup if you are using it.

Whisk the two cups of cream until fluffy. Set aside
Dissolve gelatine in two tablespoons of boiling water.
In a separate bowl, whisk cream cheese, sugar, vanilla extract. Add dissolved gelatin. Using a spatula, fold the whipped cream into the cream cheese filling.
Add about seven spoonfuls of cream cheese filling into the crust. Refrigerate again while preparing the mousse and put reserve filling into a piping bag.
Prepare the chocolate mousse packets according to package direction. Whip until thick. Layer the mixture into the cream cheese filling. Carefully spread the mousse using a spatula or the back of the spoon.
Chill until the mousse has set. Before serving, pipe the remaining whipped cream cheese filling on the edge and drizzle with chocolate syrup if you want.
