Colorful Dessert for Diwali Celebration Recipe

Today Aria's preschool teachers planned a small Diwali celebration in school. Diwali is a Hindu festival and it's India's biggest holiday of the year. It's also known as the "festival of lights." The day began with a non-religious story of Diwali, then there was a beautiful Rangoli demonstration (an art and craft session), followed by a potluck lunch for the boys and girls. I volunteered to bring a nut-free dessert for the children and since I knew other mothers would bring typical, popular Indian desserts, Aria and I prepared a colorful, playful dessert instead for the children.

For the occasion, I transformed our little Aria into an Indian princess and tried to match the dessert with her colorful, festive attire. The dessert consisted of individual servings of a cookie baked in a mini cupcake liner and filled with cardamom-flavored triple chocolate cream (lemon, strawberry and milk chocolate). Needless to say, the children adored the sweet treats and Aria was so proud to tell her classmates she had helped preparing them.

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.

Blueberry Chocolate Mousse Recipe Recipe

When done properly, there are few things in life more sensual than chocolate. If your true love happens to love chocolate, you might want to consider it as part of a special romantic dinner this Valentine's Day.

This blueberry chocolate mousse would be perfect for someone who is not very confident in the kitchen. It's made of dark chocolate mousse flavored with fresh blueberries, encased in a cup made of blueberry-yogurt pretzels and topped with chocolate-covered blueberries and yogurt or ice cream.

You won't have to spend all day in the kitchen to prepare this dessert, but it will look like you did. Your sweetie will appreciate the gesture!

Mandarin Chocolate Mousse Filled Crepe Recipe Recipe

Last night was our first formal dinner party since the New Year and I wanted to add a little wow factor to the end of the meal. I prepared a mandarin-flavored dark chocolate mousse and enclosed it in the cutest little crêpe purses. 

The decadence didn’t stop there, as I garnished the purses with chocolate puffed rice "hung" up high on a spun sugar stick. A little drizzle of coffee-liqueur chocolate sauce finished off the dessert and guaranteed that it would satisfy even the biggest chocoholic's cravings.

I'm starting to plan out what could amaze my Valentine in a few weeks and I know for sure my husband Lulu would be more than delighted that we end our Valentine's Day romantic dinner feeding each other chocolate! Check back for more ideas.
