Recipe: Mimi's Mousse

8:34 PM

My mom at THE PURPLE APPLE made this mousse with Mimi for Memorial Day weekend and decided to name it Mimi's Mousse. It is DIVINE and so easy to make.

I have had the real, true-blue French chocolate mousse and this tastes just as good! (well it's been a long time, but I am almost positive it tastes as good :] ). We layered it with heavy whipping cream that only had a little sugar in it to balance out the sweetness of the chocolate. Best part is, it's fat free! NOT!

Drum roll the recipe. Enjoy!


3 cups mini marshmallows
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
9 oz best quality semi sweet chocolate, chopped (we used Hershey's dark chocolate)
1/4 cup warm water
1 cup whipping cream, whipped
1 tsp. vanilla

in a sauce pan combine marshmallows chocolate, butter and water. Heat gently, stirring occasionally. When all ingredients are melted and combined set aside to cool. Whip cream with vanilla until stiff. Fold cream into cooling chocolate mixture. At this point you can fill pretty glasses with this mousse as we did in the picture. Or chill and create your own temptations.
