Fluffy and creamy my easy Homemade Chocolate Mousse with
When you want a cool refreshing dessert, this is the dessert for you.
A mousse can be sweet or savory. It is a soft food that incorporates air into the mixture so that the texture if light and cream. Mousse can range from light and fluffy to thick and creamy.
In this recipe simply add more whipped cream to make it airier and light.
If you don’t want to heat the house up by cooking a dessert in the oven, this recipe cooks in 5 to 7 minutes on the stovetop.
Furthermore, mousse is great for entertaining. It can be made a day ahead of time. It makes a beautiful and individual serving. And my version is economical since it uses cocoa instead of more expensive real chocolate.
Homemade Chocolate Mousse with
Cocoa Powder and Whipping Cream
- It’s smooth, light, and creamy.
- This mouse is lightly chocolate flavored. If you prefer a stronger chocolate flavor, you may choose to add more
cocoa powder. A well, you can add less whipped cream for richer chocolate.
- I drizzled over store-bought chocolate syrup and more whipped cream. Additionally, you may want to add toasted nuts, coconut, chocolate chips, chocolate-coated candies, or sprinkles to your mousse.
- To serve, try a pretty clear glass, martini glass, or small canning jar. Top with your favorite candies and serve.
