Hazelnut Mocha Chocolate Mousse Recipe-2

What goes into a hazelnut mocha chocolate mousse?

To make mousse, you generally use egg yolks, but his time, we’re using hazelnut spread, so that’s easier. 

In fact, we’re basically folding the hazelnuts spread with puffed-up whipped cream to make a mousse. Then we’ll sweeten it a bit more and add instant espresso to give it a mocha feel. 

As a garnish, I like shaved chocolate, but you can leave the mousse as-is or decorate it with a cherry of chocolate chips

And now, let’s talk about hazelnut spreads. Yes, Nutella is the most popular type around, but there are now more alternatives than ever — some are artisanal and small-batch. These are nicer! Look for a crafty hazelnut spread at all-natural stores and farmers’ markets.

How long does it take to make hazelnut mocha chocolate mousse?

Here’s the beauty of it. Making this spread only takes five minutes. You can whip the heavy cream in just a few minutes, and then you fold everything in. 

You do need to chill the mousse for at least half an hour before serving for the full effect. Mousse is much more enjoyable when cooled to fridge temp.
