We relied on the classic combination of marshmallows and chocolate for a mousse without eggs or fuss.
Why This Recipe Works
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.
