The fun part
Of course, these chocolate mousse bars are not suitable for children under the age of 12. You will want to supervise any child who is helping you to make these treats. The mousse should be added to a thoroughly coated pan and heated until it begins to set. If the pan contains chocolate chips or hard candy, be sure to remove them before the mousse begins to set.
Once the mousse has begun to set, it can be removed from the heat source and placed directly onto the lined baking sheet. Be sure to flip the bars over so that they are flat. Then, using a sharp knife, cut the mousse bars into uniform squares. You can use cookie cutters for larger shapes if desired.
Place a small amount of the chocolate mousse onto one end of a large sheet of unbleached parchment paper. Using a spatula, begin to roll the cream cheese mixture around the center of the sheet of parchment paper. Be sure to avoid coating the entire bar with cream cheese. Once the cream cheese coating has been removed, turn the bar of chocolate over so that the second side has a cookie crust. Repeat the process until all sides of the bar have a perfectly even coating.
Once the chocolate mousse has completely cooled, place it onto a cooling rack in order to set. It may take several hours for this type of bar to harden. When it has hardened, remove the chocolate bar from the cooling rack and carefully slide the flat end of the spatula through the cooling rack’s opening. This will help keep the melted chocolate from spilling out. Refrigerate the mousse until the next day and continue to enjoy its cool treat.
Cakes that have been decorated with edible silver or white chocolate must be frozen after preparation. Wrap individual bars in waxed paper and keep them wrapped in layers of dry newspaper before freezing. A good tip is to place the wrapped cakes on an lined baking sheet so that the pan’s heat will be trapped.
No Bake Chocolate Mousse can be stored in a plastic freezer bag or tightly sealed container. Before opening the bags, spray them with non-stick spray so that the chocolate does not stick to the plastic. These easy to make bars are also available in different flavors, so you can enjoy the taste of these yummy treats at any time during the year. Check out the no bake variety today!
The basic recipe for these chocolate-coated biscuits consists of softened butter, sugar, eggs, vanilla and milk. You can add other ingredients to the mixture if you like, such as nuts, raisins and cream if you wish. You can bake the cookies once each day or make them more often – about twice a week if you are able to stand the wait. When you make mousse cookies, you can place the cookies in a small zip lock bag and put them into the refrigerator to keep them fresh until ready to eat.
If you prefer, you can bake your cookies and spread the mousse mixture across the cookie crust. If you have prepared the ganache mixture ahead of time, you can place it in a sauce pan and bring it to room temperature before baking. In this way, you can spread the ganache evenly. Place the entire cookie crust into the oven and wait for it to go though the heating cycle.
Once the crust has finished baking, remove it from the oven and place the prepared bars on a plate. You can now serve your guests with a dessert that they will love. You may also choose to let your kids help you bake chocolate mousse bars at home. It’s not too difficult – just ask them to put a little chocolate on the tips of their fingers, and they are good to go!
