Mousse Can Stand Alone but Why?
With this change, came extra mousse and my daughter-in-law stepped in and created this beauty which tastes as good as I think it looks.
Mousse in A Glass
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/3 cup boiling water
3 cups whipping cream
Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave. It should not take long and you should remove it while it still has a loose form. Pour the boiling water over the chocolate and mix it completely so you have a smooth chocolate.
In a large bowl (I used my electric mixer) beat whipping cream with 3 tablespoons confectioner's sugar. Fold several scoops of whipped cream with chocolate, leaving 2/3 in the bowl. The rest should be added in scoops until you have used it up. Fold each scoop into the chocolate. When this is completed, refrigerate the mousse for at least 3 hours.
Take a glass or bowl (whatever shape you prefer) and layer the mousse with "Oreo" crumbs. The cookies should be ground in a food processor. First place in mousse on a slant. Cover with some crumbs, also on a slang. Finally add another layer of mousse. On top, place a chocolate leaf and a few crumbs sprinkled on the mousse.
You now have an attractive and delicious dessert.
Note: If you would like to intensify the chocolate flavor, add 2 teaspoons of cappuccino or instant coffee to the boiling water. Mix thoroughly and add to melting chocolate.
