Easy Chocolate Mousse - Sweet Melissa Sunday's

Happy Valentine's Day!

Quick post and iPhone picture for me today. We are in Kansas City with our good friends Karen and Larry!

Easy Chocolate Mousse? I guess it depends on how you define an easy recipe? To me, easy doesn't require three bowls and two different rounds with the mixer. I've never made chocolate mousse so maybe compared to other recipes this is easy.

Mine didn't quite turn out as it should have. Instead of whisking the egg whites into the chocolate I folded them in. I read the recipe SEVERAL times but still messed up. I hate it when that happens. My mousse ended up with little chunks of chocolate in the mousse. Everyone really liked it and we renamed it Chocolate Chip Mousse.



Thanks to Spike of Spike Bakes for choosing a great Valentine's Day recipe. You can find the links to all of the other Sweet Melissa Sunday's members here. I'm sure you'll find lots of pictures of beautiful chocolate chip mousse (without the chips).

  2. My grandma always told me there are NO mistakes, just changes and you Never tell anyone you made a mistake; you just fix it and walk out with a confident smile as you serve the dish =). I know what you mean about a ton of dishes used. I was in the same boat, even though the recipe for the chocolate mousse is easy as far as the ingredients. I think your mousse looks delicious!

  3. Well, I did whisk my egg whites into the chocolate and I got "chips" too. I like the added texture in the mousse. If anyone asks...I did it on purpose! That's my story and I'm sticking to it! :)
