When it's hot outside, the last thing you want to do is heat up your oven to make a sweet treat. Lori Renn from MyWickedWhisk.com has an easy chocolate mousse recipe that only takes about 20 minutes and involves no oven!
1 cup finely chopped semi-sweet chocolate or chocolate chips
1 cup heavy whipping cream
2 TBSP honey
1 tsp real vanilla extract
a pinch of kosher salt
Mix together the chocolate and 1/2 C of the heavy whipping cream and melt in the microwave for one minute or slowly over a double boiler.
Whisk in the honey, vanilla and salt. Set aside.
Beat the remaining 1/2 C heavy whipping cream (cold) in a cold bowl for about 5 minutes at medium to low speed.
Gently fold the chocolate mixture into the whipped cream.
Freeze for at least 15 minutes. Scoop into individual bowls and serve.
Makes about 4 servings.
