Chocolate mousse is such a tasty treat and it is so easy to make. While some recipes use eggs, powdered sugar, and even cream of tartar, this is the easiest way to make it without a fuss.
The history of chocolate mousse is an interesting one. The website tasting table explains the origin of this treat and how it came to America.
Tips For Making:
There are so many things you can do with mousse. Top it with whipped cream, crumbled-up cookies, or coconut. You can also use it in a quick parfait. Put a scoop of mousse in a glass and then top it with a small piece of pound cake or crumbled-up cookie or shortbread and repeat. Some love to put crunched-up heath bars in it or other chocolate candy bars. If you want a decadent dessert, make some crepes and let them cool. Then fill them with the mousse and top them with cut-up strawberries or raspberries, and top it with whipped cream or powdered sugar. Chocolate sauce over these crepes for the chocoholics is amazing!
-I cup of the best chocolate you have. If you only have chocolate chips on hand they will do fine. You can use semi-sweet or if you want it sweeter, use milk chocolate chips
-1 ½ cups of heavy whipping cream.
Heat the milk in a saucepan until near boiling or you can heat the milk in a microwave-safe bowl in a microwave for 1-2 minutes. Put the milk into a somewhat deep bowl (you are going to use a mixer on it). Add the chocolate to the cream and let it stand for 2 minutes.
After the 2 minutes, begin to stir with a silicone spatula to make sure all of the chocolate is melted properly. After the chocolate is melted use a handheld mixer to add air to it until it forms soft peaks. Don’t over beat. Enjoy!
