Ever since I made the peppermint mocha fudge bites, I’ve been on a mission to make the Belgium chocolate mousse my way. From my experience, Belgium mousse is a bit thicker than regular mousse. It’s like a cross between frosting and French styled mousse. French mousse is more airy and fluffy. But not Belgium chocolate mousse… It’s rich and creamy thickness melts my soul.
I wanted to recreate the recipe so that it was a bit “better for you” and for a smaller serving size. Less than 200 calories per serving! The original recipe is really delicious. It makes about 6-8 servings and had about 250 – 320 calories per serving. I don’t need that many servings and I like to keep my sweets 200 calories or less. Plus, I also wanted to experiment using different types of flavors and chocolate. I made this recipe so that it was perfect for two [people]. But of course you have them both for yourself.
My favorite is, of course, a dark chocolate mousse. Dark chocolate offers antioxidants and even has some fiber making it treat with benefits. All in moderation of course! However, you can also make into a milk or white chocolate mousse. Play around with the chocolate and even try out different flavored extracts. Orange, coconut, oh my! The possibilities are endless!
On your next romantic date, you can surprise them with delicious Belgium chocolate mousse that only takes about 10 minutes! How awesome is that? You can even serve them in fancy wine glasses to make them look fancy. Enjoy!
