Other than simmering milk in a saucepan, you only need a blender to make these almost mousse, sort of pudding chocolate desserts. You’ll need at least a couple of hours for them to set so it does take a little planning but it’s not much work at all.
Very Easy Chocolate Mousse
1 1/2 Cups milk
2 Cups chocolate chips (12 oz pkg)
1/4 Cup sugar
Pinch of salt.
I used semi-sweet chocolate chips for this batch but I would also try white chocolate, dark, or they now have these Heath bar bits that are great.
Simmer milk in saucepan until bubbles form. While that’s going on dump the rest of the ingredients in a blender & mix until creamy. Pour the hot milk on top then blend on a lower speed for about 1 minute. Pour into custard cups, or as you can see I used margarita glasses, wine glasses, and some glass ice cream cups. I could say this is because I wanted to show you how pretty it can be in a variety of dishes but the truth is that by my age I don’t think I have 6 dishes that match (maybe the old jelly glasses that just won’t break but I don’t think The Little Mermaid is quite right for this).
Top with whipped cream, shaved chocolate bits, fruit (raspberry is great) or if you’re ambitious make cute little chocolate leaves. Refrigerate at least 2 hrs, longer is better. You’ll get a great chocolate hit from these.
