Just a little bit ago I shared my recipe for eclairs. Eclairs are one of my absolute favorite desserts. If you can’t have an eclair, the next best thing is a cream puff. Cream puffs are usually missing that delicious chocolate icing on top, but are still very tasty.
I recently came across this recipe for Chocolate Mousse-Filled Cream Puffs from another fellow blogger who happens to also be named Laura. Her site is The Cooking Photographer. So Laura actually got this recipe from Hershey’s. I figured if it came from Hershey’s it had to be good. I was really drawn to the recipe mainly because of the chocolate mousse recipe. The only mousse I’ve ever made before now involved pudding mix and cool whip.
Other recipes that I have seen for chocolate mousse usually involve melted chocolate, eggs, and cooking it on the stove top. This recipe involves no cooking. If you can boil water, I did mine in the microwave, and use a mixer, then you can make this chocolate mousse.
I must tell you, that this mousse was divine and totally worth it. This will now be my go to chocolate mousse recipe. It would also be excellent in a pie or in a parfait. It would even be wonderful in a glass with a dollop of whipped cream. You simply must have this recipe. It is a staple. Thanks Laura for sharing this fabulous Chocolate Mousse-Filled Cream Puffs recipe. My family was in heaven with this simple dessert.
