White Chocolate Vanilla Bean Mousse

White Chocolate Vanilla Bean Mousse

Chocolate mousse is an indulgence that is a real treat on special occasions – at least, special occasions are just about the only time I see chocolate mousse being served. Mousse is easy to make and it is light enough that it can be served any day of the week, for any occasion, and doesn’t need to be “saved” for a handful of times throughout ... Read More »

Lemon Mousse Verrine

Lemon Mousse Verrine

Lemon curd is such a versatile product that I love to have it in my kitchen. I’ll happily eat it plain, but I also regularly reach for it as a cake (or cupcake) filling and even add a dollop or two to buttercream for flavoring. One other dessert I like to make with lemon curd is a simple Lemon Mousse that is made just by ... Read More »

Strawberry Curd Mousse

Strawberry Curd Mousse

One of the easiest mousses to make is a lemon mousse, made by folding lemon curd into whipped cream. This type of dessert is delicious, but I wanted to see if I could use it as a base for other simple mousses by trying the concept with other flavors of curd. A fruit curd is a creamy, sweet sauce made with fruit juice or puree, ... Read More »

Deep Chocolate Cake with a Raspberry Mousse Heart

Deep Chocolate Cake with a Raspberry Mousse Heart

When I saw Wilton’s Tasty Fill Heart Cake Set, I knew that I wanted to try making one of the lovely heart-centered cakes myself. A cake with a heart-shaped center is perfect Valentine’s Day. After I picked up the cake pan set, all I needed to do was decide what flavor cake I wanted to make. I decided to work backwards and, knowing that I ... Read More »

Chocolate mousse is a rich chocolate dessert that is made with lots of chocolate and lightened with either egg whites, whipped cream or a combination of the two. A classic chocolate mousse, in my book, is a chocolate mousse that doesn’t use any whipped cream. It gets its lightness and structure from beaten egg whites. Sometimes it seems that these days, mousses are more likely ... Read More »

Light Chocolate Mousse

Mousses are wonderful summertime desserts. They are light, require no (or minimal) cooking and can be stored in the refrigerator or freezer until ready to be served – and it is certainly hard to resist a cool dessert on a hot night. Chocolate mousse has to be one of the most popular mousses out there, and a rich, velvety chocolate mousse is the ideal dessert ... Read More »

Silken Raspberry Mousse

A lot of tofu mousses involve chocolate. Not that there is anything wrong with that, but they can be rather heavy and, frankly, I like fruity things during the spring and summer far more than I like chocolaty things. I haven’t done many mousses with fruit and tofu, but, in this case, decided to give it a shot. And I’m glad that I did. While ... Read More »

Dark Chocolate Yogurt Mousse

Kelli, of Lovescool, picked Dark Chocolate as the theme for this Anniversary edition of Sugar High Friday. Good choice, eh? She included a note telling people to try something new, since quite a few food bloggers have a weakness for the cocoa bean. But while I like to eat a nice bit of dark chocolate, I often prefer to use cocoa in my baked goods ... Read More »
