I’ve tried so many recipes for chocolate mousse over the years, but this Easy Chocolate Mousse is the one I keep coming back to. It’s quick, easy, has great texture and flavor, and it never fails me.
This is the kind of dessert that will impress your friends and family, with very little effort on your part. Sure, it’s kind of a cheater recipe for mousse, but no one needs to know.
Tried it last night for my cousin’s birthday dinner. It really was easy, unlike other recipes for mousse that I have tried that claimed to be simple….. I would not change a thing! Thanks so much for a great recipe. ~ Nicole
It might seem a little unconventional, with marshmallows on the ingredient list, but trust me, it always turns out fabulous!
I like to use semi-sweet chocolate chips in my mousse, but any chopped chocolate or chocolate chips should work–milk, dark, or anything in between.
I can get 12 mini desserts from this recipe, with a bit to spare, so it should make 6-8 very generous servings. You should be fine making half if you’re serving 6 or less.
I like it best served with whipped cream, but it’s also delicious with fresh berries, or some chocolate shavings, and it makes a great pie filling too!
So simple and it felt so fancy. It was really good too! Everyone loved it. Going in my favorites. ~ Kimberly
