I'm straying from my usual love for cookies and bars this Sunday to share an incredibly easy dessert when hosting a few guests.
I'm not even sure if Jocelyn remembers but she was hosting a few of us for dinner one night after work several years ago and I arrived early to help. She asked me to whip up this chocolate mousse and it's been a go to dessert ever since.
I love this dessert when playing hostess because it can be made hours ahead of time. I was whipping these up at 8am. You simply add milk and the powder and blend away. The brand pictured is what I always use and is available at most grocery stores.
To make it look like there was a little more effort I serve the chocolate mousse in martini glasses. These glasses have been used for dessert more than they have for cocktails. This time I added reddi-whip and fresh berries, but I've served the mousse plain as well.
Preparing for guests can be a lot of work, so anything that is easy and can be done ahead of time is always a plus! Do you have any go to foods when having company to make things easier?
