National Chocolate Mousse Day

Yum
It's Today!
National Chocolate Mousse Day!

Do you really need a reason to celebrate?
I'd say National Chocolate Mousse Day is a good as any reason!

If you are a chocoholic, then this recipe is totally for you!
If you aren't quite a chocoholic yet, you will be after eating this dessert!!!
A dark chocolate brownie topped with chocolate mousse and chocolate sixlets.  I included a strawberry flavored pirouette cookie too...just to be extravagent!

You know I like simple, so here you go...

Ingredients:
1 box of brownie mix (I used a dark chocolate brownie mix)
1 envelope of Dream Whip Whipped Topping Mix
2 cups milk
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 pkg Jello Chocolate Flavor Instant Pudding and Pie Filling
chocolate sixlets
pirouette cookies

Make brownies according to package.  Let cool.
For the mousse, mix the contents of the whipped topping envelope with 1/2 cup milk and 1/2 tsp vanilla.  Beat on high for 4-5 minutes or until mixture forms peaks.
In a separate bowl, mix together 1 1/2 cups of milk with the pudding mix.  Beat for about 2-3 minutes.
Stir in the whipped topping mixture.
Use on cooled brownies or refrigerate until ready to use.

To assemble, layer a square piece of brownie topped with mousse into a glass.  Add sixlets and pirouette cookies to embelish.



The mousse is so light and pairs so well with the dark chocolate brownie.
All of the embellishments really push it over the top!

Really, do you need it to be National Chocolate Mousse Day to celebrate?
I think not!!!
This would be an awesome dessert anytime!

Celebrate the little things that make life chocolatey sweet!
