With major emphasis on the quick. It is extremely fast and simple to make, and tastes brilliant too. It has the same idea as a ganache, however, it has a lesser proportion of cream so it hardens more, like a mousse. Feel free to use just about any type of chocolate, preferably one that tastes good to eat, since in this mousse, it is the flavour of the chocolate you use that will really shine through.
2 cups chocolate chips
1 cup heavy cream
In a medium pan, on medium-low heat, heat the cream until just boiling.
Pour the hot cream on the chocolate chips, and let it sit for about 2 minutes.
Stir to form a thick, homogenous mixture. (My all time favorite thing to do)
Chill in the refrigerator until thickened.
Garnish and enjoy!
That’s it. That’s all you need to do.
