CHOCOLATE CUPS WITH CHOCOLATE MARSHMALLOW MOUSSE

Chocolate Cups with Chocolate Marshmallow Mousse - Butter With a Side of Bread

You can whip up these little treats with just a few basic ingredients! This mousse is so easy to make and it is absolutely decadent. I just love the presentation of the chocolate cups – dessert is even better when you can eat the cup it is served in! Top the mousse with fresh berries and this becomes the perfect treat for Valentine’s Day!

CHOCOLATE CUPS WITH CHOCOLATE MARSHMALLOW MOUSSE

  • 2 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips, divided
  • 1 1/2 cups miniature marshmallows
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 cup heavy cream

Place 1 1/2 cups of the chocolate chips into a glass bowl and melt by microwaving in 30-second intervals, stirring in between each interval. Place 12 paper muffin cups in a muffin tin. When the chocolate is completely melted and smooth, use a small pastry brush to coat the bottom and sides of the paper muffin cups. Refrigerate for about 10 minutes and then add a little bit of coating to any thin spots. Chill for at least 2-3 hours before removing the paper.

A couple tips for success: Make sure not to brush the chocolate all the way up the sides – I like to coat the wrapper about 2/3 of the way up the sides. Also, make sure that the chocolate coating is fairly thick. If it is too thin, it will make it really hard to remove the paper without breaking the chocolate cups.

To make the mousse, combine the marshmallows and milk in a saucepan and stir over low heat until the marshmallows are melted. Remove from heat and add 1 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips. Stir until melted and cool completely. Use an electric mixer to beat the heavy cream until stiff and then fold the whipped cream into the chocolate marshmallow mixture. Scoop into the chocolate cups right before serving. Top with a berry if desired! Store any extra cups and mousse in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

A couple tips for success: Make sure not to brush the chocolate all the way up the sides - I like to coat the wrapper about ⅔ of the way up the sides. Also, make sure that the chocolate coating is fairly thick. If it is too thin, it will make it really hard to remove the paper without breaking the chocolate cups.
