Desserts presented in shot glasses are all the rage in restaurants. You can do the same at home with this terrific chocolate mousse recipe.
cup milk chocolate chips
tablespoons unsalted butter
cup dark chocolate chips
cups whipping cream
Additional milk or dark chocolate chips, if desired
In small microwavable bawl, microwave milk chocolate chips, 2 tablespoons of the milk and 2 tablespoons of the butter uncovered on High 50 to 60 seconds, stirring until smooth. Cool to room temperature, about 20 minutes.
In another small microwavable bawl, microwave dark chocolate chips, remaining 2 tablespoons milk and 2 tablespoons butter uncovered on High 30 to 40 seconds, stirring until smooth. Cool to room temperature, about 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, in chilled medium bowl, beat whipping cream with electric mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form. Reserve 1/2 cup whipped cream for garnish.
Fold 1 cup of the remaining whipped cream into the dark chocolate mixture. Fold remaining 1 cup whipped cream into the milk chocolate mixture. Divide and layer chocolate mousses evenly among 12 shot glasses. Top each with reserved whipped cream. Refrigerate at least 1 hour. Sprinkle with chocolate chips.
For a romantic dessert, use liqueur glasses instead of shot glasses.
To fill the glasses neatly, place the mousses in pastry bags without a decorating tip or in resealable plastic bags with one bottom corner cut off of each. Then, pipe the mousse into the glasses.
