This recipe is fluffy and rich. Next time, however, I'll try melting the chocolate and marshmallow together. When I added the hot marshmallow to the melted chocolate it seized up. I stirred and stirred but still had chocolate chunks. It didn't hurt the flavor, but I would have preferred the mousse without the chocolate chunks. Don't let this stop you from trying it however. It's really delicious!

This recipe is very easy to follow - great for cooking novices like me! I have a sweet tooth so I used ghirardelli milk chocolate baking chips instead of bittersweet, and traded the peppermint extract for a dash of vanilla extract and a cap-full of irish cream. So delish!! Definitely not a calorie-saver, but worth every delicious spoonful!

I had some leftover mini marshmallows and 2 bars of bittersweet chocolate that I wanted to use up. After doing an ingredient search I found this recipe. I really was surprised how well it turned out. Very simple to make and it was pretty tasty. I melted the marshmallows and chocolate together to prevent lumps. Then based a another review, I used the mousse to fill cream puffs for Valentine's Day. Boy was my husband happy,he loves chocolate and mint. While it was not the best mousse I have ever had, but it was the easiest and was good tasting.

This just isn't mousse!

While the taste of this was ok, it did not have the consistency of traditional mousse. When the marshmallows were added to the chocolate, lumps formed, which ended up as chunks and bits in the final product. I might try using marshmallow cream next time. Worth another try with some modifications.
