  • 2 c
    heavy cream
  • 2/3 c
    powdered sugar
  • 3-4 Tbsp
    cocoa (more cocoa for a richer dark chocolate flavor)
  • 1/3 c
    hot fudge topping, not heated (like Smucker's)
  • 1/4 tsp
    vanilla extract
  • ·
    Toppings: Whipped cream, chocolate syrup, maraschino cherries, Pirouline wafers

How to Make One-Minute Chocolate Mousse


  1. Add the ingredients to a large bowl. Hot fudge topping should come straight from the jar; do not heat first.
  2. With a hand mixer beat ingredients, on medium speed, for 30 seconds until well combined. Scrape down the sides with a spatula.
  3. Beat on high for 15 to 20 seconds more or until stiff peaks form.
  4. Lightly fold the mousse to check the consistency.
  5. If the consistency is fine, it’s ready to serve. If a thicker consistency is preferred, beat the mousse on high for about 10 to 15 seconds more. Make sure to not over beat or the mousse will break down.
  6. Spoon the chocolate mousse into dessert glasses.
  7. Top with whipped cream, chocolate syrup, a maraschino cherry and/or a Pirouline wafer.
