Easy Chocolate Mousse

Easy Chocolate Mousse

I love chocolate mousse but have never made it before, so when my latest Martha Stewart Living magazine came and contained a little insert called Everyday Food (a Martha Stewart Publication) with the cover saying ‘Festive and Fast’ with this recipe in it, I knew I had to try it. Of course, Martha did not let me down. This recipe for Easy Chocolate Mousse is just that…easy…and delicious!

Cook time
Total time
Serves: 4
  • 1¼ Cups Semisweet Chocolate Chips (I used Ghirardelli brand)
  • 3 Tbs Sugar (plus 1 Tbs for whipped cream topping)
  • ⅔ Cup Whole Milk (must use whole milk, I tried once using skim milk and it failed haha)
  • 3 large egg whites
  • ½ tsp Vanilla Extract
  • ¾ Cup heavy Cream
  • ½ cup Crushed Chocolate flavored Candy Canes (by Hershey's, or regular candy canes)
  1. In a blender or food processor put chocolate, sugar and a small pinch of salt.
  2. In a small saucepan, bring milk to a simmer then transfer to the blender. Let stand for 1 minute. Blend on high until smooth (about 1 minute) Add egg whites and vanilla extract and blend on high until well combined (another minute). Divide among 4 desert glasses (able to hold ½ cup).
  3. Chill for 6 hours or overnight.
  4. Before serving beat cream until soft peaks form with a hand mixer or stand mixer (about 5 minutes) and add 1 Tbs sugar. Dollop each cup with whipped cream and top with crushed candy canes and enjoy!
