Last night after dinner, my husband asked, “Where’s the Dessert?” I looked at him funny, and said, “There isn’t any!” I then proceeded to ask him, what he would have wanted. His response was this:

“A nice fluffy Chocolate Mousse, with chopped Almonds & coconut on the top!”
I just laughed at him. Tonight, he’s getting his Chocolate Mousse!


This recipe is from “THE REALLY GOOD FOOD COOK BOOK ” You won’t believe how wonderful this mousse is! You can make it, in 10 minutes Flat! I promise. You could serve it at the most elegant dinner parties or at family dinners and, I promise you, it will be all gone. You could also layer berries and whipped cream in between the Chocolate Mousse.


 8 ounces chocolate chips (Semi or Milk)

Depending on how dark of Chocolate you want

*I used a 6 ounce Symphony bar for a Milk Chocolate Mousse instead of the Chocolate chips
 6 tablespoons water
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups whipping cream
1/4 cup confectioners’ sugar


1. Melt chocolate and water in saucepan.
2. Whisk in the vanilla.
3. Allow to cool.
4. Whip the cream.
5. Add the confectioner’s sugar.
6. Gently FOLD in the chocolate.
7. Scoop the Chocolate Mousse into a clear, glass bowl or dessert glasses
8. Garnish with grated chocolate or some of the chocolate from the pan drizzled on top.
