Mint Chocolate Chip Mousse ~ Light and fluffy mousse flavored with Peppermint for the holidays!


Even though the counters are piled high with cookies and treats we always seem to think we need a dessert at our holiday gatherings! We could easily get by with just munching on all the treats but there is something about a festive dessert that tops off the meal. Or maybe I just have to uncontrollable sweet tooth. Now that I think about it it’s probably the latter of the two.

In fact now that I’m typing this I’m dreaming of a dessert I can try out on the family at Christmas. Knowing me it will be a festive Valentine’s Day treat since you know I am a blogger. At Thanksgiving I served a Mint dessert. Don’t worry I made a pumpkin one too! I’m always a little bit ahead of the game. Well, I try to be at least. Sometimes I have an epic fail and am scrambling at the last minute. #notpretty

I love how this dessert was light and fluffy but had the crunch from the chocolate chips and the surprise of being loaded with a peppermint flavor!

    I wonder if you could substitute real whipped cream for the Cool Whip? I’m really not a big fan of Cool Whip.
