Treat Day Wednesday–Mini Chocolate Mousse’s in Edible bowls

moussecups

Now that the pink is gone, at least in food colour, I thought I’d make a fan favourite. Chocolate Mousse!

It’s one of my favourite food groups ever and yes it’s a food group.  Don’t judge :)

I also wanted to make it a little more fun for the girls so I made edible bowls.  I have done the balloon method before but wanted to try the chocolate box technique.  I used tiny plastic cups and drizzled chocolate to make the cups.  Stuck them in the fridge and then popped them out when set. Aren’t they cute!

  4. Add 1/3 of the whip cream to the chocolate until combined.

  2. I'd dive into that mousse in a second! I'm sure the girls gobbled it all up too. One, because it's delicious and two...who couldn't wait to get at that delicious chocolate serving bowl ;)

  10. I love chocolate mousse and I love how you did the cups! I've done the balloon method also but it's always so hard to get them the same size, can't wait to try the cup method.
