Chocolate Mousse

03 October 2011

Psalm 118:24  This is the day that the LORD has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.

I woke up with this in my heart this morning! Its so sunny and bright today after a whole week end (and Monday) of rain. This time of year everyone's focus seems to be just finding a way to gather enough "umph" to make it until the end of the year...BUT  today is the day the the Lord made, be glad to have today - He will see you through until the end of the year, He will provide the "umph" too see it through if you rejoice in Him and lean on His strength. When I am weak, He is strong!

- Just some encouragement for today!

Also along the lines of encouragement...I am sure NOBODY needs encouragement when it comes to CHOCOLATE. Yip I thought so, just the mention of this cream, delicious cocoa bean product made you reach fro a tissue to wipe the drool off your chin. Its even more drool-inspiring when it is melted with soft marshmallows and folded into delicate peaks off fresh, whipped cream...


 Yes, it was that droolishly good! And so easy - I know i always say that, but its TRUE! This version of chocolate mousse takes very little effort and transforms it into a divine dessert (or anytime snack!) Here is how it goes:

...break up the chocolate (I used hazelnut and dark chocolate), open a small bag of marshmallows...


...put them into a pot with a little cream...


...melt on a very low heat...


 ...until completely melted...




 ...take off heat and let it cool COMPLETELY! This step is very important, if it will flop, it will be that this mixture was not cool enough!

...Whip the rest of the cream and mix the marshmallow mixture into the whipped cream, pour into a serving dish and refrigerate.


I made these adorable little heart strawberries by chopping a strawberry in half and using a little heart shaped cookie cutter to shape the strawberry.


The texture and taste is exactly the same as if you had spent forever making it the typical "eggy" way and is bound to impress guests! It also works for a triple chocolate mousse, just make 3 separate batches, one with dark chocolate, one with milk chocolate and one with white chocolate and layer it in the serving dish! YUM.
