Chocolate mousse is a creamy, delicious dessert perfect for special occasions. But why wait for a special occasion to come along? It’s such an easy dessert recipe that you can whip it up whenever you’ve got a craving for something cool and chocolaty.
You can easily make chocolate mousse look like a fancy dessert by serving it in individual dessert bowls or wine glasses. Top mousse with whipped cream and sprinkle with a little bit of powdered cocoa or fresh chocolate shavings.
The Chocolate Mousse recipe I am sharing with you here is perfect for first-time mousse makers. There are only five simple ingredients. The hardest part about making chocolate mousse is waiting 6 hours for the finished product to chill and set before eating it.
One of the best things you can do to ensure your mousse tastes great is to use high quality chocolate chips. You can use Milk Chocolate chips or Semi-Sweet Chocolate chips. Milk Chocolate chips will result in a sweeter-tasting chocolate mousse than the Semi-Sweet Chocolate chips.
You’ll note in the recipe that it takes several minutes to beat the heavy cream into stiff peaks, so a stand mixer is helpful for the task. However, a hand mixer gets the job done just as well, plus your arm will get a mini workout.
