Cravings are curious things: Everything’s normal, until they’re suddenly all you can think about. Now, if only we had portable and easily accessible snacks for those times when unasked-for cravings strike. With that in mind, let us introduce you to this instant chocolate mousse that’s as easy to make as pulling the lid off a pudding cup — only far more satisfying.
Kirbie, the blogger behind this luscious recipe, knows a lot about cravings; she even named her blog after them. So, it’s only fitting that she has the perfect solution: an easy-peasy chocolate mousse recipe that will have you enjoying your favorite sweet in no time. And, believe us, for being such 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, silken tofu, packs plenty of protein — and as strange as that might sound, 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 of hours, it’s perfectly acceptable to dive in right away if you’re willing to sacrifice a little texture.
Want it chilled a bit 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.
