Two-Minute Chocolate Mousse

Circle B Kitchen

This really does make some very good chocolate mousse. At two minutes you will have a soft mousse. If you would like it a little thicker, just shake it a bit longer. At three minutes, my mousse had about turned to butter (very thick). Add more or less chocolate or sugar to suit your tastes. I suggest using a wide-mouth jar just to make spooning the mousse out a little easier. To make mousse for 2, just double the ingredients into a larger jar. For more than that, I might pull out the mixer.

Serves 1


½ cup heavy cream

1 heaping tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder

3 teaspoons powdered sugar

Pinch fine sea salt (a healthy pinch)

Whipped cream topping:

1/4 cup heavy cream

1 ½ teaspoons powdered sugar

1/8 tsp vanilla

Miniature chocolate chips for serving (optional)

For the mousse:

Place all of the mousse ingredients in a jar and shake vigorously for 2 minutes.

For the topping:

Put the whipped cream ingredients in a separate jar and shake vigorously for 2 minutes.

For serving:

Spoon the mousse into a serving dish and top with the whipped cream and chocolate chips. (or eat it right out of the jar!)
