I’ve tried so many recipes for chocolate mousse over the years, but this Easy Chocolate Mousse is the one I keep coming back to. It’s quick, easy, has great texture and flavor, and it never fails me. Plus, it’s the kind of dessert that will impress your friends and family, with very little effort on your part. It might seem a little unconventional, with marshmallows on the ingredient list, but trust me, it always turns out fabulous!
I usually use semi-sweet chocolate chips, but any chopped chocolate should work. I can get 12 mini desserts from this recipe, with a bit to spare, so it should make 6-8 very generous servings. You should be fine making half if you’re serving 6 or less. I like it best served with whipped cream, but it’s also delicious with fresh berries, and makes a great pie filling too!
Easy Chocolate Mousse
- 1 1/2 cups miniature marshmallows

- Beat heavy cream in a large bowl until stiff peaks form.
- Gently fold cooled chocolate mixture in whipped cream until well mixed.
- Spoon or pipe into dessert dishes. Refrigerate until set, about 3 hours.
