Cravings are like surprise parties. Everything’s normal, until--BAM!--it’s all around you and it’s all you can think about--except cravings don’t come with the built-in snacks. That’s why you need this almost instant chocolate mousse. It’s just as easy as pulling the lid off a pudding cup, but far more satisfying.
The blogger behind this luscious recipe, Kirbie, knows a lot about cravings; she even named her blog after them. So it’s only fitting that she has the perfect solution: a chocolate mousse recipe that’s as easy as blend, top with whipped cream, and enjoy. And, believe us, for a quick and easy recipe, it sure doesn’t skimp on flavor. Nutella is one of the core ingredients, and its rich, cocoa-forward flavor is sure to satisfy that chocolate-hungry monkey on your shoulder.
The second ingredient packs plenty of protein--hear us out. Though that’s not something you usually look for in your desserts, it’s key for banishing your sweet tooth for hours thanks to its ability to keep you feeling full. But don’t take our word for it! You’re just five minutes away from trying one of these silky sweets for yourself. Although Kirbie suggests letting it set in the fridge for a couple hours, it's perfectly acceptable to dive in right away if you're willing to sacrifice a little texture.
Want it chilled a little when you dive in? Use the blender for most of the processing, but finish the whipping in a bowl set in ice. As you whip, your dessert will cool. By the time it's fully blended, the mousse will be slightly chilled just as you like it.
