Why did’nt I try this sooner??????????? Mrs. Vanard (Jeanie) had an accident and had to have surgery recently, and we visit her weekly. The last time I was there, she gave me some bittersweet baking chocolate. And the package had a recipe for chocolate mousse, she told me to try that.
It is so simple, please go bring the chocolate and try it for this weekend and wow your friends.
3 squares bittersweet baking chocolate,
1 (8 oz) whipped topping (I used Kraft Cool Whip)
First melt the chocolate squares in a microwaveable bowl for about 1-2 mins, whisking every 45 secs. When it is completely melted, add about 1/2 cup whipped topping and blend well. Finally blend the remaining cool whip gently. Dont be shocked, the final quantity is lesser than the container of your cool whip (because the hot chocolate melts the cool whip you added initially … I know sucks right!)
That’s it, mix well and refrigerate (half an hour is enough, I know I couldnt wait longer either!)
Last weekend I was in Ikea, and I ate their Chocolate Overload cake (for a slice, I had to burn a hole in the husband’s pocket, but oh so totally worth it!). It was layers of chocolate cake and chocolate mousse. Yumm!! I am tempted to try making it at home with this mousse.
