I’ve been craving for something sweet for a while now. After poking through the cabinet I found a few mixes that I had on hand, a brownie and a moose mix. I thought I could put them together and make some easy Chocolate Mousse Brownies.
I started with a Brownie mix from King Arthur for the base. The box calls for oil and I like to use Wildtree’s Butter Flavor Grapeseed Oil, It gives it just a little richer flavor and it’s dairy free. After baking the base I let it cool and grabbed the mousse topping mix (you could also make the mousse with whipped cream and some cocoa powder). For the mix, I had to just whip up some cream and add the chocolate goodness. I made mine with coconut milk to keep it dairy free if you go this route be sure to use the full-fat coconut milk in a can. Against the Grain has a great blog post about the differences in brands of coconut milk and how to make coconut milk whipped cream.
Spread the whipped topping on top of the brownies and it’s done. These were so easy and so yummy! They look fancy but only take a little time to make and would be great for parties. Please do note that these should be eaten within a day or two, the mousse topping does make brownies a little soggy after sitting awhile.
In the photo, I drizzled a little chocolate on top then garnished it with raspberries and mint leaves.
