Chocolate Mousse Clouds

November 6, 2010
Prepare yourself to experience the marriage of flakey phyllo cups and light as a cloud chocolate mousse. This is one of my most requested desserts when bringing something for a get together. I can never seem to make enough.Within minutes they are gone.Yes they are that good.Elegant and easy – and best of all- no baking! Especially nice after an intimate dinner for two, they are just the right size for feeding your favorite person ❤
  • 2 boxes Athenos phyllo cups
  • 1 C.whipping cream
  • 1/4  C. whipping cream
  • 1 C. milk chocolate chips
  • powdered sugar for dusting
  • raspberries (optional)
Put a metal bowl and your beaters in the freezer until you are ready to whip the cream.As long as you don’t forget,put the cream in their too.Cold ingredients and utensils make for better whipping.
Microwave chocolate chips and 1/4 C. cream on medium high or until chips are beginning to melt.Stir until chips are completely melted.It’s very important not to wait until the chips melt completely-that is one step away from burning them! The liquid will finish the melting process while stirring.Cool about 15 minutes.
While chocolate is cooling,  beat the 1 C. of whipping cream into soft peaks. A soft peak holds it shape without being “stiff”.Do not over beat ,or you will have butter!
Fold one half of the whipped cream gently into the chocolate mixture.Carefully and GENTLY fold the remaining whipped cream in,just until blended. Folding prevents the mixture from losing the air that you just beat into the cream.

Spoon into mini cups, or pipe them in.To be honest piping takes way too much time for the minimal time these last! Garnish with raspberries, if  you like fruit with your chocolate.Dust with powdered sugar.These little bits of heaven don’t even need the garnish as they are ..well you know by now..a foodgasm on their own.
