Chocolate Mousse

I love serving this smooth dessert in tiny espresso cups; that way there is no guilt and it can serve a crowd!

Serves 4


  • 7 ounces semisweet milk chocolate, finely chopped
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream, divided
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 cup crushed amaretti cookies
  • Ingredients


  1. Put the chocolate in a large glass bowl.
  2. Heat 1/2 cup of the cream in a small saucepan until it is just under the boil.
  3. Pour over the chocolate and stir until all is melted and smooth. Cool in refrigerator.
  4. Pour the remaining cream into a separate bowl and whip with the sugar until soft but not stiff peaks form.
  5. Fold the cream into the chocolate until well blended. Fold in the cookies.
  6. Transfer to serving goblets or espresso cups; garnish with piped cream if desired.

Thank you Mary Ann. I still make your chocolate bundt cake from years ago.


This recipe looks delicious!

Someone referenced chocolate bundt cake, but I cannot locate that recipe, can it be added to the Ciao Italia site? Is it elsewhere? Please let me know, that sounds fantastic.
