Chocolate Dessert Cups:

  • 12 oz semi-sweet chocolate
  • 12 oz white chocolate
  • 1 8 inch Chocolate Cake chopped

Faux Mousse

  • 2 packs chocolate pudding mix
  • 2 cups Milk
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 cup whipped cream


  • Dessert Cups: Line muffin pan with muffin cups.
  • Melt chocolates separately over a double boiler. Once the chocolate is melted brush the chocolate inside the cups making sure to get the sides and bottom.
  • Freeze for about 20 minutes, then you can peel the liner off.
  • Easy peasy I promise :)
  • When all the cups are separated I like to put the chocolate cups in a fresh muffin cup and place in the refrigerator.
  • Faux Mousse: Whip until pudding consistency and refrigerate.
  • On to the whip cream :)
  • Assemble: Refer to post / visual pictures for assembly.
