Editor’s Note: In honor of #ChocolateMousseday I wanted to share my favorite recipe for making a quick mousse (no separating eggs involved). The recipe was found in a Taste of Home magazine years ago. Reminder when cataloging your recipes always include where you got the recipe and when. Future generations will thank you. For the family cooks out there that don’t write their recipes down, please consider doing this for your family. I wish my grandmother had written down a few of her recipes as I try and try to replicate them and they still don’t taste like she made it.
1 can (14 oz) Sweetened Condensed Milk
1/3 cup Cocoa Powder
3 Tbsp. Butter or Margarine
2 Tsp. Powdered Instant Coffee or Espresso dissolved in 2 tsp. hot water
2 Cups (1 pint) Cold Heavy Whipping Cream
In a medium saucepan, combine sweetened condensed milk, cocoa powder, butter and coffee mixture. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until the butter melts and the mixture is smooth. Remove from heat, cool.
In a large mixing bowl, beat the heavy whipping cream until it is stiff. Gradually fold chocolate mixture into the whipped cream. Spoon into dessert dishes. Refrigerate until set, about 2 hours. Garnish as desired. Makes 8 servings.
