Today I am going to share with you one of my all time favorite dessert recipes. It’s my husband’s homemade chocolate mousse. We make this for a lot of our catered events. It’s so rich and yummy!!!
Here’s what you’ll need:
1 pint of heavy whipping cream
1/3 cup of powdered sugar
1/2 a bag = 6oz of semi sweet chocolate morsels
The first thing you want to do is melt the chocolate. Either in a double boiler pan or use The Pampered Chef microwave cooker. I love this thing. You’ll see me use this in a lot of posts. It cuts down on so much time and melts things perfectly in about a minute. You can find them online for about $10.00
Once the chocolate is melted set aside for a few minutes as it needs to cool before mixing in with the other ingredients. (You don’t want the chocolate to cool until harden just so it’s not hot when adding it in with the other ingredients)
Blend the heavy whipping cream and powdered sugar until it gets to a whipped consistency. A good way to know if it’s ready is to put it on a spoon and turn it upside down and it should stay. You don’t want to blend too much because it can turn oily.
Now turn the mixer on low and add the cooled chocolate slowly to the whipped mixture. You will see a moca color appear. Once blended, scoop into a dessert cup and place in the refrigerator over night. It tastes the best really cold.
Add some fruit or a chocolate stick and enjoy!!!
