Okay, we aren’t quite sick of cooking any longer and we are back in the kitchen. But the creative juices aren’t exactly flowing and our desire for “easy” is at its peak!! Here is a great and versatile chocolate mousse recipe that is an easy dessert, an elegant dessert and a popular dessert! What more could you ask? It is guaranteed to become one of your favorites.
Easy Chocolate Mousse
Makes 12 – 16 large portions or 24 – 30 small ones
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
2 tablespoons margarine
2 egg yolks
2 cups pareve whip
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
In a small bowl, melt the chocolate and margarine together in a microwave. Stir until smooth. Rapidly whisk in egg yolks so they don’t have time to cook. Set aside to cool briefly.
In a mixer, beat pareve whip until stiff peaks form. Beat in sugar and vanilla. On low speed, add chocolate to whip until completely combined. Store, covered, in the refrigerator until ready to use.
Serve in martini glasses with a cookie on the side or spread across a batch of brownies (use Duncan Hines to make this super easy!)
