Chocolate Mousse Cups

I guess it's treat week on the porch hooray! So after you've made Laura's mintalicious cookies give these a try!

So these I will admit were a little time consuming. But mega-fun to make too. I got the mold at Jo-ann for $2 and just regular old baking squares for the chocolate.

Melt the chocolate and pour into your mold, filling it about half-way full.

Turn it over and tap it gently so the chocolate pours evenly throughout the mold

Put it in the fridge for about 20 mins. (or just take it out  after you remember from when you started that batch of laundry or favorite show)

The mold says to put it  in the freezer for a few minutes after refrigerating but don't do this! It makes them brittle and impossible not to break. They are perfect after just refrigerating, still a little flexible and don't break as easily. However if they do break, its easy to just seal it up with some extra melted chocolate. No thanks for the tip Wilton!

As your last set of cups are cooling, whip up the chocolate mousse. I just used the recipe from our best bites because its so easy.

My favorite part is getting the pastry bag and filling them. Spoon the mousse in your pastry bag and fill those bad boys up!

I topped mine with strawberries but you could do chocolate curls, mint leaves, raspberries, or anything your mind comes up with.

Eat up!

  1. Wow!! These are so beautiful, Maren! I need to make some. I'll bet you're the life of the party when you bring these babies!

    1. Thanks Nancy! I kind of was the death of the party after that whole tray flipped over into the dirt and I was so sad I couldn't bring myself to pick it up! But thank heavens for plastic wrap which they fell into, not too much dirt got in them and people still ate them in pieces. Woosh!

  2. Those look divine! What a fun idea that looks gorgeous and must tast delicious too. Notice how I said "must" because I'm not so sure yet...Hmmm I know a way to solve this mystery! I'll be over in a snap and you can make me some! ;)
