Our Chocolate Hazelnut Mousse Mix, made with Ghiradelli® chocolate and the rich flavor of hazelnuts, is so smooth it melts in your mouth. That’s why it makes such a great cannoli filling (pictured). Make this Christmas dessert even faster and easier by using purchased cannoli shells.
This mousse is also great filling for a Chocolate Hazelnut Mousse Cake, Chocolate Hazelnut Cream Puffs (great for Christmas Eve buffets) or Chocolate Hazelnut Crepes (yummy for Christmas morning brunch).
TIP: See the READY MADE page for where to purchase ready-to-use cream puff or cannoli shells and crepés.
OTHER GREAT WAYS TO USE THIS MOUSSE FOR CHRISTMAS AND ALL HOLIDAY ENTERTAINIG:
Elegant Presentation: Mound in wine or martini glass topped with whipped cream (pictured). Serve with champagne. It’s a beautiful finish for your elegant holiday dinner party.
Fun Dip or Topping: Top with sprinkles and use as Chocolate Hazelnut dip for French toast sticks. It’s delicious and fun! Quick and easy as a topping for Chocolate Hazelnut waffle bites - both are perfect for Christmas morning brunch buffets or your casual Christmas party.
Pairing or Flavor Theme: Serve topped with whipped cream and with a glass of chocolate wine or Frangelica® to carry out the hazelnut theme. Add a chocolate ball on a tooth pick and serve in a martini glass for a Chocolate Hazelnut Martini (pictured). All great ways to finish holiday dinner.
Mousse Pie: Made as directed, our mousse is not firm enough to cut into slices. Chocolate Hazelnut Rocky Road Mousse Pie is pictured. It was frozen and thawed about 10 minutes after cutting before being served. This is sometimes called a “freezer pie” or “no-bake cheesecake.” Whatever you call it, it makes a wonderful dessert for game day entertaining or a pot luck holiday dessert. It’s also amazingly easy for as complex as it looks when it’s sliced. See DESSERT RECIPES for directions.
More “Frozen” Ideas: Use the mix to flavor Chocolate Hazelnut Ice Cream or freeze prepared mousse and serve stuffed between double chocolate cookies for Chocolate Hazelnut “Ice Cream” Sandwiches (pictured). See RECIPES for directions for Ice Cream and Ice Cream Sandwiches
Note: Make with reduced fat cream cheese and Lite Cool Whip® for light and fluffy mousse texture
