Chocolate Mousse is my favorite dessert! The first time I tasted chocolate mousse was on my honeymoon…many moons ago. I don’t remember my mom making mousse, her specialty was brownies and grandma typically made cherry pie. So I never experienced mousse until I was dinning at the hotel restaurant.
I especially like mousse when layered with chocolate cake…like the Chocolate Tower Truffle Cake at The Cheesecake Factory! When I treat myself to this cake I normally get it to go…so I can just eat a few bites of it each day until it’s gone. It is heavenly!!!
I’ve made chocolate mousse a few times over the years including one from Suzanne Somers but wanted to try one made with coconut milk…NOT with avocados…and not loaded with a lot of sugar. Searching the internet I discovered a recipe at Dying for Chocolate called South Seas Chocolate Mousse.
It’s made with Coconut Milk, Mascarpone Cheese, Bittersweet Chocolate and a little Rum! Very simple to make. I didn’t melt the chocolate but put the chips in the blender with the milk and cheese…so mine is more of a Chocolate Chip Mousse. I also didn’t have any rum and didn’t want to wait to make it. So I left it out. Filled my Mason Jars and topped mine off with strawberries.
