What Ingredients are Needed for Chocolate Mousse?
You only need two ingredients for this fancy looking dish: heavy whipping cream, and semisweet dark chocolate chips or barks.
I have made this mousse with semisweet chocolate chips, but you can easily replace that with only dark chocolate chips or a combination of dark and semisweet chocolate sweets.
How to Make Chocolate Mousse-
Whipping the Heavy Cream- Carefully whip the cream to form medium peaks. I did that with the help of an electric mixture and a big bowl. On the other hand, if you don't have an electric mixer, you can do it in a big size hand held mixture too. However, it takes more time and quite a lot of muscle power.
Melting and Folding Semi -Sweet Chocolate Chips- I find that using chips is easier than barks. I have used small chips, which melt in no time. You can use dark chocolate chips/bark as well. The folding is important to create air pockets in the mousse.
Can You Make Chocolate Mousse Ahead and Store?
Absolutely. You can make this chocolate mousse ahead of a gathering or party and store it in the fridge. Furthermore, you can store it for 2-3 days in the fridge.
What Can You Use for Serving Chocolate Mousse?
You can use ramekins, shot glasses, or any type of cups as well. Let your imagination run wild and you will be surprised at how innovative your mind can be.
