My husband and I find every excuse in the the book to whip up some chocolate mousse. It’s an impressive dessert to make when company is coming, when my husbands’ had a bad day, when I’ve had a bad day, when we just want some dessert….are you seeing a trend? The richness of the chocolate and the creamy texture of the whipped cream is a combination we constantly crave.
The other night I decided to tweak my recipe a bit to intensify the flavors. My husband and oldest daughter had just left to go running and that left my youngest daughter and I at home to whip up some mousse. As we whipped and folded the creamy mixture my daughter would take each spatula or spoon I put in the sink and lick them completely clean. After a while she said, “Wow, I am so glad I stayed home with you tonight!” I looked over and her entire face was covered in bits of chocolate and cream. These little moments cooking with my kids are the times I cherish the most.
