For ever chocoholic out there, there's nothing more decadent than a bowl of chocolate mousse for dessert! Making chocolate mousse in the Thermomix is oh-so-easy. This recipe is based on the Everyday Cookbook and is just totally delicious.
When I serve my chocolate mousse, I like to pop it into little glasses and then have a selection of yummy things that everyone can top their's with. Chopped strawberries, raspberries, chocolate shavings, whipped cream, crushed Peppermint Crisp bars or crush chocolate honeycomb are all delicious options... and I certainly wouldn't say no to any of them.
This Thermomix chocolate mousse is a great option if you're having guests over and want to prepare dessert early. Simply whip it up, pop it in the fridge to set and it will be good to go once dessert time rolls around.
