This rich and thick chocolate mousse is a perfect no-fail dessert. It’s easy, only four ingredients, and yields an absolutely decadent treat in just minutes. It’s a must-try.

Servings: Makes 4 individual mousse cups 

INGREDIENTS:

  • 8 oz - Cream Cheese
  • 1/4 cup - Allulose or Erythritol
  • 1 cup - Sugar-free Dark Chocolate Chips 
  • 1 cup - Heavy Whipping Cream (keep it cold)
  • 1/2 tsp - Flaky Salt (I like Maldon brand)
  • Optional: Berries for garnish

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Leave the cream cheese out on the counter for about an hour to fully soften. Otherwise, soften your cream cheese in the microwave - it needs to be fully soft/slightly warm or room temp. In a mixing bowl, use a spatula to whip the cream cheese with the sweetener. Mix well, until the mixture is nice and fluffy.

 

  1. Melt the chocolate in the microwave by zapping it in 30 second increments, stirring each time until it’s fully melted. (This takes my microwave a total of 90 seconds, but yours might take a little less, so check it at 60 seconds! Don’t over cook it. As soon as its mostly melted, just stir it to finish the melting.)

 

  1. In a stand mixer with a whisk attachment, add the heavy cream. Beat the cream until it forms a thick whipped cream (stiff peaks). Add in the cream cheese mixture. Turn mixer back onto high and beat the cream cheese with the whipped cream for about 15 seconds.

 

  1. Then, with the mixer running on medium speed, SLOWLY drizzle in the chocolate in a steady stream.

 

  1. Once all the chocolate is combined with the cream mixture, pour the mousse into 4 ramekins. Let them set in the fridge for at least 30 minutes to an hour. Then garnish with flaky salt and berries. Serve and enjoy!

 

NOTE: They last well in the fridge (covered) for several days even, so you can make them ahead. Just make sure to leave them out on the counter for  45-60 minutes before serving, so they can soften slightly.
