Description

If you love the rich taste of chocolate then this Easy Chocolate Mousse Recipe is for you! This recipe is rich in flavor and it’s all about the chocolate!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1.5 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 2 cups whipping cream
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla

Instructions

  1. Place the chocolate chips in a mixing bowl that will have enough room to add the cream
  2. In a saucepan bring the cream just to boil (no need to scald it)
  3. Pour cream over the chocolate chips and start to whisk until it’s smooth
  4. Whisk in the vanilla
  5. Refrigerate for at least one hour or until it’s chilled and has thickened.
  6. If you double the recipe then double the cooling time.
  7. After it’s chilled use an electric mixer and beat chocolate mix until soft peaks form.
  8. Spoon in dessert bowls and serve with or without toppings


Notes

“Cook” time is time to chill. It is ready after chilling in the fridge and whipping in the mixer but I recommend chilling for another hour after spooning into dessert bowls.
