Chocolate Mousse in Chocolate Cups

Hey I saw this here and was super excited to try. The chocolate cups turned out well. I made a simple eggless mousse to fill the cups. The choco cups with mousse are so divine that you're sure to drown. Why waiting?. Make it for your family and enjoy. I used muffin cups to make the choco cups, but would prefer cupcake sizes next time. It is too rich. A lovely dessert which will surely get you claps. In the original recipe they've asked to use semi sweet chocolate. I used a mix of milk and dark chocolate. The below will get you 3 to 4 muffin size cups



For chocolate cups
You need
  • Milk chocolate - 50 gm
  • Dark chocolate - 50 gm

Method
  • Line muffins cups with paper liners
  • Melt chocolate using double boiling method. The bottom of the bowl shouldn't touch the boiling water.
  • Stir continuously
  • When the chocolate has completely melted and is smooth, spoon into muffin liners
  • Using a pastry brush, brush chocolate over bottom and sides to coat evenly
  • Place the coated cups in muffin tray and freeze them for 30 minutes or until firm
  • Give a second chocolate coating to each cup in the inside and freeze until completely set.
  • Once set peel off the muffin liners very carefully
  • Cover and keep frozen until use


For mousse
You need
  • Chocolate chips - 100 gms (I used a mix of white and milk chocolate chips)
  • Cream - 170 gms
  • Vanilla essence - 1 tsp
  • Sugar (as required) - I didn't use

Method
  • Beat cream with powdered sugar until you get soft peaks
  • Melt chocolate chips using a double boiler.
  • When it has completely melted and is smooth, allow its temperature to drop a bit. It should be warm.
  • Fold the beaten cream into the melted chocolate and beat well.
  • Pour into the chocolate cups and freeze for atleast one hour before serving. :)
