You’ve made your list, checked it twice, made the dinner and guests are on their way … but you forgot dessert! Has this ever happened to you? Don’t worry – this Chocolate Peppermint Mousse is festive, delicious, and SO fast to make! Get more delicious recipes by signing up for our email newsletter!
Chocolate and peppermint, is there any better combination? This delicious dessert has only 4 ingredients – organic whipping cream, dark cocoa powder, peppermint extra, and pure maple syrup. Let’s talk about whipping cream for a second. Have you ever taken a look at the ingredient list for conventional whipping cream? You might see more than one ingredient on that list—those extra things are stabilizers, preservatives, and thickeners. What’s the ingredient list on organic cream, such as Organic Meadow? One ingredient: cream. It should be that simple. There is no need for those other ingredients! And trust me, when you’re making something like a mousse, you want the real thing—for the taste, texture, and health of it.
While we’re on the subject, choose a fair trade, organic cocoa powder like Camino Cocoa. Fair Trade ensures that the people who help product the product in less fortunate countries are paid fairly. We carry organic Peppermint Extract as well, and delicious Canadian Maple Syrup (try Canadian Heritage Organics!).
Choose quality for your ingredients and take this amazing mousse to a whole other level of flavour!
