Super Easy Chocolate Mousse

Recipe by  

"A quick, easy chocolate mousse that will please everyone. Great for potlucks and layered deserts! I recommend chilling for about half an hour to firm and give a nice chill, but this can be eaten right after making. Feel free to adjust the amount of chocolate you use. This is a great recipe if you need a chocolate layer for deserts."

I'm not really sure what I did wrong here. The flavor was good and it is definitely an easy mousse recipe, well if it works out its easy. When I added the chocolate pudding, it hardened the minute I added it into the cream. When I tried to mix it in as gently as I could it thickened up way to quickly and ended up looking a mess and not all of the pudding mixed in so it left little specks of dry pudding mix. I whipped some extra cream and folded that in to try and lighten it up. Could have been my pudding, maybe it was old or something? The flavor was nice but the texture was just off. I think it would be better to mix 1/2 cup of the cream with the pudding and whisk that together before trying to add it into the slightly thickened cream. Served it with sliced bananas and whipped cream on top. The family liked it.

This was super easy to make and it has a great flavor. I was a little afraid of adding the pudding cause of the review that I had read but if you follow the recipe you won't have any problems. Great and super easy recipe !!! My family loves it. Two thumbs up

I love it!!!!!!!!! If you want to make a different flavor, switch the pudding mixes I made chocolate and lemon and they both were great!!!!

It was way too thick, like fudge icing. I added 1 cup of fat free milk and it was better.

It got way to thick as soon as pudding was put in. Won't make again
