Dreamy Chocolate Mousse

You know what I love about this Dreamy Chocolate Mousse?  I love that there are so many things I can do with it.  I usually use it for a filling in cup cakes or a cake (like Moist Chocolate Cake), but it's also a great filling for Crepes, cream puffs, or just as a plain dessert.  It's rich, creamy, chocolatey, and just plain good!  The entire family loves it.  You just can't go too wrong with chocolate. :)

1 teaspoon unflavored gelatin
1 tablespoon cold water
2 tablespoons boiling water
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup (1/2 pt.) cold whipping cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Sprinkle gelatin over cold water in small cup or bowl and let stand 1 minute to soften. Add boiling water to gelatin and stir until gelatin is completely dissolved. Let gelatin cool slightly. Stir together sugar and cocoa in medium bowl and add whipping cream and vanilla. Beat on medium speed of mixer, scraping bottom of bowl occasionally, until mixture is stiff. Pour in gelatin mixture and beat until well blended. 

Recipe from Hershey's.

  1. It looks fabulous! I could seriously eat that right now!

  2. oh my.. when you said stuffed in a crepe the lights went on in my brain. Definitely dessert this week!

  3. We were living in California in the 80s when Chocolate Mousse was the rage, pretty much like Tiramisu was in the 90s. I need to make this to surprise my husband, who ordered it every time when we went out to dinner. XOXO

  4. This looks delicious! When we go on vacation, we always order chocolate mousse at our favorite restaurant. I really don't know why I never make it at home, but I should. I am your newest follower. I would love for you to stop by my blog, I'm currently having a giveaway. :) Thanks!
