Easy Chocolate Mousse with Croissant Crumbs
Though mousse might seem like an intimidating dish to make, this simple version is foolproof. Rather than relying on eggs for the structure, whipped cream does all the work, creating creamy clouds of luscious chocolate. Toasted croissant breadcrumbs top off the mousse, bringing buttery decadence (and a twist of French flair) to each bite.
Pro tip: Be sure to fold the chocolate mixture and the whipped cream together gently to avoid deflating the air that’s been whipped into the cream. For a more casual way of serving this mousse and the beauty of a make-ahead dessert: scoop straight from the bowl to serve, and make the croissant crumbs up to three days ahead.
