From Cook's Country
Authentic chocolate mousse can be tricky to prepare and has a short life span—the cream that lightens it deflates quickly. We wanted a chocolate mousse that was easy to make and would last for a day or two—perfect for parties. Melted miniature marshmallows thinned with a little milk provide a stable and creamy base for our Amazing Mousse. Melting the chocolate directly into the mixture saved on cleanup. We found that bittersweet chocolate, which has less sugar and more cocoa than semisweet or milk chocolate, packed a welcome, rich flavor.
Mousse without eggs or fuss? This super-quick mousse relies on melted marshmallows for its airy texture. For a whimsical garnish, top mousse with a few toasted mini-marshmallows.
