Easy Valentine’s Day Chocolate Mousse

This treat came together in just minutes, sat for the afternoon and was the perfect chocolate bite after dinner. These would be great for a dinner party when you want to make dessert ahead of time, as a chocolately delight for your Valentine or just for those nights when chocolate starts calling your name.

Ingredients:

1 1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips 4 tablespoons sugar pinch salt 2/3 cup whole milk 1 teaspoon vanilla 3 eggs whites 

Directions:

  1. In a blender, combine chocolate chips, sugar and salt. Don’t turn it on yet…

  2. In a small saucepan, gently heat the whole milk until hot but not boiling. While your milk is heating, whip egg whites until stiff peaks form. Set aside.

  3. Carefully pour hot milk into the blender and allow to sit for 2 minutes. Still don’t turn it on!

  4. Ok, you can finally turn on the blender. Blend the chocolate milk mix until smooth. Add vanilla and blend for an additional 2 minutes.

  5. Pour chocolate mixture into a mixing bowl and fold in egg whites.

  6. Pour mixture into 3-4 small bowls or cups. Place bowls/cups into refrigerator to set.

  7. Allow mousse to set for at least 4 hours. Top with whipped cream if you have it or just enjoy the chocolate delight!
