Creamy Chocolate Mousse

Dear Chocolate Mousse,
I think I'm in love with you and your chocolaty goodness. The last time I made you I didn't share with anyone. Lately I've been seeing you on all sorts of interesting places, namely my hips and butt. Thank you so much for the early Christmas gift, but I hope to return it before the holidays arrive. The name of the store where I can return the muffin top would be much appreciated.

Your biggest fan,
Heidi


I received the newest issue of Simple & Delicious magazine and knew I must make this recipe. I adore chocolate and it was calling my name. I made this recipe using skim milk, fat and sugar free pudding, fat free cool whip and fat free sour cream making it a healthy and yummy dessert option for your holiday (or everyday) table. I must remember, after eating several batches without sharing the calories do add up!! I served it in my beautiful depression glass cups so I felt really fancy :) I hope you give it a try. Enjoy :)

CREAMY CHOCOLATE MOUSSE
2 cups cold milk
1 package (5.9 ounces) instant chocolate pudding mix
1 carton (8 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed
1/2 cup sour cream

In a large bowl, whisk milk and pudding mix for 2 minutes. Let stand for 2 minutes or until soft-set. Fold in whipped topping and sour cream. Pour into individual dessert dishes. Dollop with whipped topping if desired.

HAHA! I could have written that letter myself, but to ice cream! I've mixed pudding and Cool Whip before but I be the sour cream really improves the texture and flavor. I am soooo getting the ingredients for this tomorrow! Yum!

LOL @ your note! This sounds yummy! I'm a big fan of chocolate myself. I bet my family would be very happy if I served this mousse for dessert.

I never wanted to make mousse because of the raw egg issue. This recipe looks crazy good. Will save for when that chocolate craving hits.

Well, I have to say that I don't share your love of Mousse! :D Sorry, but if you were talking about PB and chocolate together, I'd be all over it. I have a problem with the texture of mousse in my mouth.

Happy SITS Saturday Sharefest!!!
