Christmas is approaching so quickly, I can’t believe it… this year went by so fast. I have to think about presents for my children. That is right I do not have presents yet. Lately they are into skating. So maybe I can get a hockey stick or something related to skating or hockey. They are hooked so much with Canadian winter sports. Today we went to a party in our city “Skate with Santa” and it was a blast. They were skating for the whole time. Then they had a hot chocolate which they love. Do you think that these chocolate mousse brownies will go perfect with hot chocolate? I think they will:)
I really like brownies, they are perfect for any Holiday… Christmas, Easter, Valentine’s Day etc. They are easy to make and there are so chocolaty. I bet probably everyone loves them. These sweet chocolate mousse brownies are so good! The mousse is also very chocolaty.
Actually, I can tell you I made this mousse twice… because I was not satisfied with the first topping so I had to fix it. I went to the store quickly again (second time in a day) to get ingredients that I just did not have on hand at home. It was a late night when I finished but I was finally happy with my results. The first mousse was perfect and delicious too, but to watery. These chocolate mousse brownies are topped with peppermint to add mint flavor and drizzled with chocolate. Are you ready for Holidays? Did you finish your Christmas shopping?
