Easy Chocolate Mousse-Like Dessert

READY IN: 2hrs 20mins
Recipe by horseplay

I've refrained from calling it a mousse because I know mousse connoisseurs will claim "there's no eggs, it's not a mousse!" But it comes out rich and velvety like any real mousse. A note about the portions: I said it makes enough for four, but I used martini glasses to serve it in and it didn't quite fill them as much as I would have liked. So depending on the size of what you're using to serve the mousse-like dessert in, you might want to make sure you have enough whipped cream to add some on top. It also tends to be a bit rich, so you may be happy with smaller portions, also. From the Hersheys website.

This was fun and easy to make! It was a little tricky timing everything and it was much sweeter than anticipated, but it was a huge hit! I put the mixture into martini glasses with a dollop of cool whip and sprinkled it with cocoa powder and chocolate chips for decoration.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place marshmallows, milk and cocoa into a small pot over medium-low heat. Whisk constantly and make sure the marshmallows don't burn to the bottom of the pot until marshmallows have completely melted.
  2. Add chocolate chips slowly, whisking continuously until chocolate chips have melted.
  3. Stir in vanilla. Set aside and let cool, whisking occasionally to prevent formation of a skin.
  4. In a medium bowl, beat whipping cream and powdered sugar until stiff; fold into cooled chocolate mixture.
  5. If desired, fold in chocolate chips. Spoon into dessert bowls, wine glasses or martini glasses and freeze for several hours or until firm.
