National Chocolate Mousse Day

Celebrate National Chocolate Mousse Day with my Super Simple Triple Chocolate Mousse. Luscious layers of chocolate mousse get adorned with whipped cream and fresh berries.




Super Simple Triple Chocolate Mousse
This is not only Super Simple, but it can be made ahead of time!

Special Dark chocolate syrup
Chocolate mousse (instant is fine)
Whipped cream (fresh or straight out of a can)
Fresh raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, and/or strawberries
Squares of special chocolate, such as Lindt Intense Orange (1 per serving)

Start with any clear serving bowls or glasses… even champagne flutes. Drizzle chocolate syrup up and down on the inside of the glasses. Then spoon a little chocolate mousse in the center. Place 3-4 dabs of whipped cream around the outer edges and place a berry between the dabs. Add a full layer of chocolate mouse over it all and decorate around the edges and in the center, if desired, with more berries. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until serving time. To serve, top each bowl with whipped cream and accent with a square of special chocolate. (Yeah… a big, fresh strawberry in the center would be super.)

KISS Tip: This dessert looks soooo sensational, but it is Super Simple and flexible. For example, swap out a favorite pudding for the mousse. Use any berries you like. Swap out the square of special chocolate with a rolled wafer cookie or a favorite milano.
