In the original, famous chocolate mousses, sumptuous dark chocolate was combined with the subtle taste of orange liquor. Our Traditional Orange Chocolate Mousse is luxurious, with just a subtle taste of orange liquor. Served in these adorable little “tuxedo” chocolate shells (pictured), this mousse is sumptuous enough to finish even the most sophisticated meal. TIP: Look for these and other chocolate shells at specialty food stores around fall and winter holidays, or on line any time. They keep very well as long as they aren't exposed to extreme heat or cold. Serve on a platter or individual plates (both pictured). Add a flute of champagne for a more elegant Christmas dessert presentation.
OTHER GREAT WAYS TO USE THIS MOUSSE FOR EASY CHRISTMAS AND ALL HOLIDAY ENTERTAINING:
Easiest Way To Serve: Pile mousse in a martini glass or cordial glasses (pictured). It’s just the right ending for any Christmas party. Top simply with a dollop of whipped cream or garnish with chocolate sprinkles or pearls.
Cannoli Filling: Cannolis are traditional crisp Italian pastries made in tube shaped shells with a filling typically made with ricotta cheese. Cannoli shells make a lovely "container" for this luscious mousse. Traditional Orange Chocolate Cannoli are pictured: mini cannoli shells have been filled with mousse and drizzled with chocolate syrup; chopped candied orange pieces dot the open ends for extra garnish. This is a very traditional serving style for this most untraditional flavor fusion. Serving this preparation will definitely set you apart as a Christmas party host! TIP: Make this easy entertaining by using prepared regular or mini size cannoli shells. See the READY MADE page for where to purchase ready-to-use cream puff or cannoli shells and crepés.
