How do I know? Well, other than wanting to be home in my pajamas 24 hours a day watching British movies and reading Jane Austen novels, I’m craving loads of comforting foods. Mostly, thank heavens, this has been roasted vegetables and simple pastas, etc., but man alive, this week the dessert cravings really hit me.
I love this chocolate mousse. If you like chocolate pudding but want something elegant enough to serve guests, I recommend this. It’s simple enough that it’s no big deal to make but it’s absolutely delicious. It’s the perfect creamy consistency and has the perfect chocolatey taste.
I love this mousse plain, but this time I added a tiny bit of coconut extract. It’s also great with almond, or you could even do cherry.
If you’re trying to plan ahead, know that this does take a few hours to cool in the refrigerator. If you want to hurry the process along, you can place the bowl of mousse in a large bowl of ice water in the refrigerator. If time isn’t a concern for you, you can leave this in the fridge chilling overnight before whipping to serve.Print
