Sweet treats to beat the heat

Sweet treats to beat the heat

By Spencer Blake. CREATED Jul 26, 2013

 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!

Ingredients:
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

Directions:
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.
