Easy Chocolate Mousse
Easiest dessert ever! This rich chocolate mousse is a snap to make. Break out the blender and bring on the spoons!
- 1 1/4 cups semisweet-chocolate chips
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- Fine salt
- 2/3 cup whole milk
- 3 large egg whites
- 1/4 teaspoon pure peppermint extract
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 1/2 cup crushed peppermint candies
Make It Nutty
Swap almond extract for peppermint and top with chopped, roasted almonds.
In a blender, combine chocolate, sugar, and pinch of salt. In a small saucepan, bring milk to a simmer, then transfer to blender. Let stand 1 minute. Blend on high until smooth, 1 minute. Add egg whites and peppermint extract and blend on high until well combined, 1 minute. Divide evenly among four 6-ounce dessert cups. Chill until just set, 6 hours or up to overnight.
Just before serving, beat cream until soft peaks form. Dollop each cup with whipped cream and sprinkle with peppermint candies.
