Triple Chocolate Mousse Recipe

10.10.14 by Jackie

This whimsical chocolate dessert marks the onset of the holiday season. The sweet treat consists of espresso dark chocolate, orange and salted caramel milk chocolate layers. If you omit the garnish, you'll notice that the dessert is egg-free and gluten-free. 

Having an almost 3-year old at home is a constant reminder that I need to get prepared to celebrate Halloween. We've gone through so many costume ideas already, I wonder which one Aria will finally agree on when the times comes! For this dessert, I prepared three different flavors of chocolate mousse. The mousse required very few ingredients: milk, whipping cream, butter, sugar and of course chocolate (the star of this sweet treat!).

Cardamom Chocolate Mousse topped with Meringue Cookies Recipe

This elegant chocolate dessert might seem complicated but it really wasn't. First I prepared a cardamom-flavored chocolate mousse. The mousse required very few ingredients: milk, whipping cream, butter, sugar and of course cardamom and chocolate (the stars of this sweet treat!). You'll notice no eggs were used in this step. 

The second step is the meringue cookie topping. You can prepare the meringues way in advance and assemble the dessert at the last minute. The meringues provided a nice contrast of texture against the velvety chocolate mousse, as well a striking contrast of color.

Coffee Pot de Creme Recipe

This week has gone by so fast. And it's already that time of the week when I share another dessert recipe with you. I prepared a French dessert I make often during the winter season because it doesn't require any fruit. I simply raided my pantry and used vanilla beans, instant coffee and Kahlúa, which is a coffee-flavored, rum-based liqueur. Yes, you probably already guessed it; I prepared pot de creme.

I love how easy and simple they are to make. The texture is velvety and lightly sweetened. In my opinion, pots de crème are the quintessential representation of decadence one can find in French desserts.

Crepe Soufflee Recipe

I make crêpes very often. I've done it so many times since I was a kid that I bet I could prepare this batter with my eyes closed. The only difference in today’s recipe is that I made them thicker and fluffier. A crêpe soufflée is basically a regular crêpe batter folded with egg whites. This couldn't be easier!

I flavored the dessert with fig spread, fresh figs and a dollop of whipped cream. To provide a great contrast of texture, I sprinkle crushed honey-roasted peanuts on top. Give this simple French sweet treat a try; I promise you'll be in heavenly dessert bliss!
