Yummy Easy Chocolate Mousse Recipe
If you love the rich taste of chocolate then this Easy Chocolate Mousse Recipe is for you!
This easy chocolate mousse recipe is super rich in flavor and of course it’s all about the chocolate, so come on all you chocolate lovers time for some chocolate mousse, you’ll love how easy it is to make this one!
This easy chocolate mousse recipe has become favorite with my family and friends. I’ve made it so many times now and yet it never stops impressing everyone. While the wait time for it is what takes so long it really is easy to make. You can even do it in the microwave if you want.
You can top this chocolate mousse with some chocolate curls, berries, coconut or leave it plain, either way, it’s delicious. I personally love chocolate mousse with raspberries. While I did top these ones with chocolate whipped cream, it’s not needed as the chocolate mousse is so rich. Be prepared to loosen those pants though because it is a rich dessert and you’ll feel full and your chocolate cravings satisfied. Did I mention it’s easy to make?
- 1.5 cups semisweet chocolate chips
- 2 cups whipping cream
- 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
- Place the chocolate chips in a mixing bowl that will have enough room to add the cream
- In a saucepan bring the cream just to boil (no need to scald it)
- Pour cream over the chocolate chips and start to whisk until it's smooth
- Whisk in the vanilla
- Refrigerate for at least one hour or until it's chilled and has thickened.
- If you double the recipe then double the cooling time.
- After it's chilled use an electric mixer and beat chocolate mix until soft peaks form.
- Spoon in dessert bowls and serve with or without toppings
"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.
