Chocolate Mousse Recipe at About A Mom

I think I’ve died and gone to chocolate heaven! Chocolate Mousse is one of those desserts that is perfect for a celebration. Yesterday for our New Year’s Eve celebration, I made my chocolate mousse even more decadent by topping it with DOVE® Whole Fruit Dipped in Dark Chocolate. Many thanks to the folks at Dove® Dark Chocolate for sponsoring this dessert and providing DOVE® Fruit samples.

Chocolate Mousse is a deceptive dessert. The airy whipped texture gives the illusion of a light dessert, but after a few bites you realize just how decadent and rich it is. A little of this dessert goes a long way, so I like to serve it in shot glasses. Plus, everything is cuter in miniature. I topped each chocolate mousse shooter with DOVE® Whole Blueberries Dipped In Dark Chocolate. Not only was it a lovely presentation, but also a delicious surprise for my friends and family.

Available in three varieties of real, whole fruit – cranberry, cherry and blueberry, DOVE® Fruit uses a divine combination of real fruit dipped in silky smooth DOVE® Dark Chocolate. As the #1 solid dark chocolate on the market, the unique, silky-smooth taste of DOVE® Dark Chocolate does not disappoint, living up to people’s expectations of what chocolate should taste like.

Dove Whole Fruit Dipped in Dark Chocolate

Along with my chocolate mousse, I placed a bowl of each Dove Fruit variety – cranberry, cherry and blueberry, onto the dessert table. I felt like such a good host, providing my guests with a delicious treat that provides the healthy benefits of dark chocolate and whole fruit.

I have goals to live a healthier lifestyle in 2015 which can be a bit of a challenge for someone like me with a serious sweet tooth. I think a few pieces DOVE® Whole Fruit Dipped in Dark Chocolate will help me satisfy those cravings, without the guilt that usually comes from sweet treats.
