Black Forest Mousse

An excellent and easy dessert.  With just two main ingredients, you can't get much simpler than this and it's low calorie too.

First I started with a dark chocolate ready-to-eat pudding I got for free on a store promotion--the shelf-stable ones that come in the little tubs.  I folded that into some extra-creamy whipped topping then added some chopped dried cherries and mini chocolate chips.

So easy!

The result was a delicious and quick dessert that company thinks you fussed over.

You can substitute lower-fat versions of all things used and by the same token, it can be made even richer by folding in real whipped heavy cream.

Black Forest Mousse

  • 2 individual cups shelf-stable dark chocolate pudding
  • 1 1/2 cups whipped topping or real whipped cream
  • 2 tbs chopped dried cherries
  • 1 tbs mini chocolate chips
  • additional mini chips and topping for garnish

Empty the pudding tubs into a medium bowl.  Add whipped topping or whipped cream and fold pudding into the topping.  

Fold in the mini chocolate chips and dried cherries.

Spoon into 3 dessert cups (such as mini trifle bowls).  Add a dollop of whipped topping and a few mini chocolate chips to garnish.

Serves 3
