Questions & Replies

  1. My daughter is getting married in a couple of weeks and I have thought about making this for the reception by putting it into chocolate cups. Can this be made ahead of time and frozen until the wedding day?


  1. I followed this recipe down to a T. At first, it turned out as a sweet whipped cream. I waited another 4 hours. Finally, it seemed ready to put on my cake. I put it on, and after waiting overnight, i checked on it. It turned into a hard creamed cheese. I have performed many recipes like this, but i thought that I'd give this one a try. Ever again.
  2. Yummy and rich. I added a packet of hazelnut cocoa to it before whipping. Plan to top with cookie crumb topping
  3. I made this as a filler between a layer cake. I used ghiradelli white chips (11oz) bag and remaining ingredients as listed. However, I placed chips and cream in the microwave in 30 sec increments. Turned out awesome! After it set (plan to wait a while for this) I spread it between dark chocolate cake layers (8"). There was enough left over to make (5) 1/2 cup servings that I put mini chocolate chips on after completely set. Everyone loved it! Super easy and greet tasting...especially between cake layers. On its own was good...but needs a little contrast with it. Fruit, chocolate chips, raspberry swirl. Nothing major...just a little something.
  4. This was easy to make and yet oh so good. The whole family enjoyed it. I followed the recipe exactly as written.
  5. This is a perfect and versatile recipe! I wanted to just make regular chocolate mousse so I used a packet of Baker's bittersweet squares and a pint of cream (no measuring!) I sprinkled it with white chocolate flakes; to resemble my favorite chocolate mousse the Food Exchange no longer sells. Mine didn't taste quite the same, but was delish no less. This is a great recipe because it's simple, requires very little measuring, and best of all no eggs and thus very little mess. Will make over and over with different types of chocolate and different extracts!
