Instant Chocolate Mousse Recipe

Delicious Air.

That’s right. That’s what I said.

This mousse tastes like delicious air. Such is the awesomeness of this almost intangible delight that you can forgive yourself for making this again and again and again!

Instant Chocolate Mousse Recipe

This recipe is egg-free. But it does call for Marshmallows. Now, the regular marshmallows you get in any general store isn’t vegetarian. It is made with gelatin. If you’re okay with that, then no worries. If not, what you can do is go to a vegan specialty store and purchase those marshmallows, order them from Amazon OR make them yourselves at home (tutorial coming up soon).
