The World's Easiest Mousse - 3 Ways

TCHO Mousse 3 Ways

I'de like to think my quirkiness shows in my photography and recipes. Some people may think my frequent use of bacon and bourbon is unhealthy. Or that it's dorky to play Fire Place for your Home because you don't have a fireplace. It's true, I do my own thang. I took some TCHO Drinking Chocolate Crumbles home to experiment with and make a few varieties of chocolate mousse. Naturally, I default to a bourbon bacon mousse. The egg nog mousse ended up being my favorite, but all three are delicious! And this really is the world's easiest mousse, just whip and chill. Then relax by the fake fire.

Egg Nog Mousse:
1/4 cup store bought egg nog, scalded in a sauce pan until hot
3 tablespoons TCHO Drinking Chocolate Crumbles

Espresso Orange Mouse:
3 tablespoons brewed espresso, hot
1 tablespoon fresh squeezed orange juice
3 tablespoons TCHO Drinking Chocolate Crumbles
*Garnish with fresh orange zest

Bourbon Bacon Mousse:
1 tablespoon vanilla infused bourbon
3 tablespoons hot water
3 tablespoons TCHO Drinking Chocolate Crumbles
*Garnish with chopped bacon

Whip ingredients in a standard blender or with an immersion blender. Poor single batch into a demitasse or ramekin. Chill for at least 4 hours or overnight and garnish as directed above.
