Looking for a quick Christmas desert that does not require baking, a lot of work or special ingredients? Look no further! *Drum roll*
Meet the Chocolate Mousse! Yes, it is that good that it should be referred to only using capital letters. Light and rich at the same time, it will make any holiday night extra special. In fact, I am going to make it my new Christmas tradition!🎄 Are you convinced yet?
Number of portions: 12-13 if serving in shot glasses (but can be two per person)
Prep and cook time: 15 minutes but chill in the fridge for at least 2 hours before serving (overnight is better)
-1 cup of cream (35 percent)
-1/3 cup of milk or water
-1-2 table spoons of sugar or sugar powder (depending on how sweet you want it to be)
-3/4 cup of chocolate chips (I used milk chocolate) and 1/2 of chocolate bar (or just use 1 cup of chocolate chips instead)
Optional: raspberries or chocolate bar that can be grated for decoration
1. Combine chocolate chips, sugar and milk or water in the soucepan and put on low, mixing. Chocolate chips have to completely dissolve
2. Meanwhile pour one cup of cream into a bowl and whip it using your mixer on high. It may take 3-5 minutes until the mixture is no longer liquid and looks like a whipped cream
3. Once the chocolate has melted, mix it in with the whipped cream until it all has the same color.
4. Pour in the mixture in small glasses or shot glasses, can put raspberries or grated chocolate on top using tea spoon (you can prepare it by taking any solid chocolate bar and just grate it using the grater for cheese)
5. Put it in the fridge (I put shot glasses with the mousse inside a big lunchbox with lit on first to keep it fresh) and leave it for at least two hours. The mousse will become solid.
