Easy Chilli Chocolate Mousse

December 22, 2017


Thank you to Grounded Pleasures for sponsoring this post!

The presents are (half) wrapped! I’ve finally figured out how to watch Home Alone on my TV! I’ve made four batches of fudge! I think it’s safe to say: it’s Christmas!

What are you up to this year? It’s a simple affair for me; lunch with Mum and my brother. As usual, we will eat ourselves silly all day and watch National Lampoon’s on at night. I am hanging for my Mum’s pumpkin pie and for the pressure cooker that I think is under the tree for me.  

If my mum hadn’t confirmed with me that I need to help her with the shortcrust pastry for her pie approximately 7 times, I’d be making this dessert. Which is actually the easiest dessert ever. 

I’m pretty impressed that all it takes is 3 ingredients for such a rich and flavourful no bake dessert. And let’s be honest, no bake desserts are essential here over the next few months. 

You could actually use any Grounded Pleasures flavours here (dreaming of cinnamon!) but I used their chilli drinking chocolate. Something ’bout that heat!
