Chocolate Mousse Cream Puffs

Can you imagine anything more perfect? A delicate, little cream puff filled with light, airy chocolate mousse, this is heaven. Filling these with chocolate mousse is a great way to change up a traditional cream puff, and your guests will be very impressed by them! These are any kid’s, or adult’s, dream!

 Speaking of kids, I made these with the help of some very special people. My aunt and cousins live in west Texas and came to stay with us for a few days on their way to Tennessee. The two little girls, Gracie and Molly, had so much fun helping me make these yummy treats.

They are the sweetest little cuties, and I always enjoy getting to spend time with them and their family!

Chocolate Mousse Cream Puffs

Make your pat a choux and bake the cream puffs.

In the mean time, make the chocolate mousse, but double the recipe so that you have some left over! (BTW, I did not have enough heavy cream to make 2 recipes of chocolate mousse, so I just beat 2 egg whites with a pinch of salt in a mixer until stiff peaks formed and used that as well as the heavy cream.)

When the cream puffs are completely cool, fill a piping bag fitted with tip#12 with the chocolate mousse and fill each cream puff. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Keep the rest of the chocolate mousse in the refigerator in ramekins   wrapped with plastic wrap and save to enjoy another night. 🙂
