I had some heavy cream left over from making caramels and wanted to put it to good use. Oh, this is DEFINITELY what I call, “good use”!
It’s about as simple as it gets but oh so delicious.
Velvety Chocolate Mousse
Heat 1/4 cup of the cream in a glass bowl in the microwave just until it simmers. Add the chocolate and cover, allowing the chocolate to melt for 5 minutes. Stir until blended.
In mixer bowl, beat the remaining cream, sugar, vanilla, and salt until soft peaks form. Fold a large spoonful of the whipped cream into the chocolate mixture. Then, fold in the remaining whipped cream.
Place in the refrigerator until chilled (1-2 hours).
You can eat it just like this if you can’t wait 🙂
Or, you can pull out your piping bag and make it all fancy. Either way, it tastes even better garnished with some chocolate shavings and a strawberry
