This is a recipe my mom and I liked to make together when I was younger. Only three ingredients, and easy to make in the microwave.
optional: chocolate shavings or sprinkles
Mix chocolate, marshmallows and 1/2 cup of the heavy cream.
Place in the microwave on high for approximately 2 minutes.
Stir the mixture well until the mixture is smooth. You may need to put back in the microwave for 15 second intervals if the marshmallows are not yet melted (stirring in between if you need to do so more than once)
Cool about 45 minutes to room temperature. While the chocolate mixture is cooling, whip the rest of the cream in a separate bowl until soft peaks form to use for the topping. Refrigerate until the chocolate mouse is cool..
Once the chocolate mixture is cooled, stir one half of the whipped cream into it. When fully mixed, gently fold in the rest of the cream.
Spoon into eight 4 oz ramekins and refrigerate until set (at least 2 hours – we generally make the day before, then let it set overnight)
OPTIONAL: Sprinkle tops with chocolate shavings or sprinkles if you like.
