I used this mousse to fill some chocolate cupcakes and topped the cupcakes with some chocolate frosting with caramel ice cream topping mixed in. I seriously think that these may be my new favorite cupcake! So rich and chocolatey and caramely! Looking for a fabulous, easy, and AMAZING mousse recipe? I now declare your search over! Here is the recipe for the mousse that I would eat plain from a bowl (but it’s even better with the cupcake, check out the Basic Chocolate Cake recipe from my blog for the recipe):
For the mousse (for approx. 24 cupcakes):
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream
- 3/4 cup caramel ice cream topping
Beat the cream until light and fluffy, starting on low and working your way up to high (it helps the process if you chill your bowl and beaters before you use them). Beat in the carmel topping. Enjoy your incredibly easy and delicious mousse.
