We have tons of hot chocolate mix left over from Elise’s Minnie Mouse birthday party. Way more than we could ever think about drinking. I had no idea what to do with it, until I came across this pin on pinterest. This Betty Crocker Hot Cocoa Mousse Recipe is to die for! It was so easy to make. I was eating it with in 10 minutes!
-1 pint (2 cups) heavy whipping cream
– 1/2 cup powdered sugar
-2 packages (1.25 oz each) hot cocoa mix
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
Whipped cream, if desired.
In a medium bowl, beat whipping cream with electric mixer on high until cream begins to thicken. On medium, beat in powdered sugar and cocoa mix until blended. Add 1/4 tsp cinnamon and the vanilla; beat on high speed until soft peaks form.
- It is that easy. I didn’t have any vanilla extract so I skipped that and it still turned out great. I also never measure anything, so I just threw it all together. It was so yummy. I may have ate almost all of it by myself. I plan to make more, as I still have lots of hot cocoa left over. My mom gave me the great idea of making cupcakes and adding it to the center. I also want to make a pretty truffle with oreos and chocolate cake. This may be dangerous for my sweet tooth!
