European Style Mousse Mix From Nestle

It’s hard to find somebody who doesn’t love chocolate mousse. It’s on everybody’s top five list of desserts – something we look forward to savoring on New Year’s Eve at that haughty French Bistro. Even though chocolate mousse is a perennial dessert favorite, few of us have the time or the touch to make it right. Thus, we don’t eat it as much as we’d like to.

However, Nestle’s European Style Mousse Mix might change all that: this handy alternative to restaurant mousses. Nestle’s European is both fast and easy to make, and the end product is quite good. This mousse mix is actually imported from France, and tastes deliciously light. It’s made in a quick two-step process (just add the mix to two-thirds of a cup of milk and blend it until it thickens into a transparent swirl; then chill). A couple of hours later, you have a chocolate mousse that is fluffy and delicately sweet — creating a wonderful compliment to sliced fruit, Biscotti or Bunt cake. Plus, the caloric content is modest : just 90 calories per serving.

If you’re looking for an elegant taste in a package that won’t take 3 hours to build, try this mousse mix. The wide array of flavors (milk and dark chocolate, mocha, chocolate raspberry truffle, milk chocolate Irish cream) and the inexpensive price tag (around 3 bucks a box) make it very attractive. Like the Oreo cookie or those bakery donuts of yesteryear, a mouth could become addicted to this.
