Easy Chocolate Mousse-Like Dessert

"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."

  • 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.
  • Add chocolate chips slowly, whisking continuously until chocolate chips have melted.
  • Stir in vanilla. Set aside and let cool, whisking occasionally to prevent formation of a skin.
  • In a medium bowl, beat whipping cream and powdered sugar until stiff; fold into cooled chocolate mixture.
  • If desired, fold in chocolate chips. Spoon into dessert bowls, wine glasses or martini glasses and freeze for several hours or until firm.

    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.


So basically, I cook two nights a week for a household of four adults including myself. Here are their dietary preferences: Person #1) Eats no meat, but seafood ok. Person #2) Eats no meat, seafood, eggs, cheese or fermented items. Person #3) Dislikes veggies, ethnic foods, and dishes with a lot of sauce. No tofu (this makes feeding persons 1 and 2 very difficult). Loves meat. Person #4) Dislikes cooked veggies (raw ok) and tofu. Dislikes onions and peppers of any kinds. Usually I end up making a meat-n-potatoes dish one night a week to satisfy diners #3 and 4, since the no-meat rule of diners #1 and 2 is a dietary thing, not moral/ethical, so they are okay with me picking out chunks of meat from say, a stew, and replacing it with veggie meat in their plates. The other night I make something vegetarian - squash as a main dish or something with lentils and beans. As long as there's no tofu, diners #3 and 4 will eat it, albeit with little enthusiasm. <img src="http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/PACSpring09Iwasadopted.jpg">
