Karen’s Killer Fixin’s: Chocolate Cheese Mousse

  It’s time for Karen’s Killer Fixin’s!

Over the years, I’ve filled two 4-inch, 3-ring binders with my own creations as well as recipes my family and friends were willing to share with me.  I simply love to cook and want to share that love with my readers.

So every Friday, I share one recipe I think you and your family might enjoy. It might be a main course recipe. A cookie or baked item. Candy. Salads. Whatever strikes my eye and fancy…which today is CHOCOLATE CHEESE MOUSSE!!

We all have those times when company arrives unannounced and we haven’t had time to think about making dinner, let alone dessert.  Or we’ve made dinner plans and have no time after work to spend a lot of time whipping up a fancy dessert.  This recipe is quick and easy, while still having that cache that says “special”.

I hope you enjoy today’s Killer Fixin’s.  Happy eating!

CHOCOLATE CHEESE MOUSSE [Serves 6]

3 square (3 oz.) semisweet chocolate
½ cup sifted powdered sugar
1 pkg. (3 oz.) cream cheese
2 cups whipped cream
3 T. milk

In 1-quart glass measure, combine chocolate, cream cheese and milk. Cook on high 60 seconds, or until chocolate is melted; stir until smooth.  Blend in sugar, cool.  Stir about ½ cup of the whipped cream into chocolate mixture.  Fold in remaining whipped cream.  Spoon into dessert dishes; refrigerate or freeze until serving time.

Note: To dress it up even more, sprinkle top of each dessert with shaved sweetened chocolate or mini-chocolate chips.
