Easy Chocolate Mousse

Who doesn't love to indulge with a bit of chocolate from time to time.  A rich and luxurious chocolate mousse is what I have in mind.  This incredibly silky and decadent chocolate mousse takes only 5 minutes to make and it is perfect to sharing with your sweetheart this Valentine's Day.












Recipe for Chocolate Mousse


LIST OF INGREDIENTS
  1. 1 cup of heavy cream (Chilled)
  2. 1/4 cup powder sugar or to taste
  3. 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
  4. 6 tablespoons of chocolate syrup (Such as Hershey's)
  5. Chocolate Shavings (To garnish)
  6. Raspberries (To garnish)
  7. Mint (To garnish)

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Place chilled cream into a large mixing bowl.  Beat the cream with hand mixer set on medium. Beat the cream until the cream begins to thicken.  Do not over-beat.
  2. Add the confectioner's sugar.  Beat for one minute.  Add the vanilla and chocolate syrup and continue beating on medium until soft peaks form.  Do not over-beat because it will turn clumpy and butter-like consistency.
  3. Garnish with fresh raspberries and mint.
  4. Serve mousse immediately.


Thank you for stopping by today.  Your comments always make my day.

Warm Regards,

Janet

  11. The presentation of the mousse is beautiful, and it does look easier because, it has no egg whites to get right consistency. But can I get it right? It looks delicous. Thank you for sharing the recipe. xoxo Su

  12. I love chocolate mousse so much, I'm truly fond of chocolate in every form you may offer it to me, my sweetest Janet !
    Think, just this morning I've published a post about the importance of hot chocolate during the XVIIIth century ( with recipes ), we've been inspired by the same topic, isn't amazing ?!?
    Probably we both think that chocolate and Winter are a wonderful combination !
    Sending blessings on the remainder of your week, dearie
    with deep love and gratitude
