simple sweet: chocolate mousse

image via {here}
hello mes chéries!  sitting in heathrow at the moment, at an adorable english pub in an enormous wing chair, surrounded by rustic upholstered stools and deep padded leather sofas.  my very last dose of british-ness {parting is such sweet sorrow}.  but strangely, cannot stop thinking about my favourite recipe for chocolate mousse!  so here it is, an amazingly simple, incredibly delicious recipe that you can whip up in no time, with ingredients you may have on hand, and which is an ideal ending for a romantic summer meal with a beau... 

to serve four, just mix together 1/2 cup chocolate hazelnut spread {aka nutella} with 1/3 cup crème fraîche.  add 1 1/2 teaspoon coffee or hazelnut liquor, if desired.  then, in a separate bowl whip 1 cup heavy cream until it holds soft peaks.  reserving some for garnish, fold the whipped cream into the hazelnut/crème fraîche mixture, spoon into serving dishes {even large wine glasses would work}, and chill for at least 20 minutes before serving {topped with a generous dollop of whipped cream, of course}.  so simply and so impressive.  

bonne idée, non?  xx hillary
