Things I am Going Crazy For This Week
Have Mercy…S’more Mousse Filled Chocolate Cups!
Sorry, I just really have been wanting to say that line for the longest time now and these just seemed like the perfect recipe.
Plus, I have been watching Full House re-runs pretty much every night with Asher before bed while I work.
I kind of love it all over again.
Nick at Nite rules.
And it’s been fun watching it with Asher, who has never seen the series before. She loves little Michelle and oh my gosh can you blame her? She has to be the cutest baby (err babies?) on television. Seriously, those Olsen twins were adorable.
You know what else is adorable?
Actually, let’s not use the word adorable because that word sort of annoys me. I think it stems from people always calling me adorable to this day. I may look young, but I am so over being called adorable.
Anyway, these little no-bake, S’more Chocolate Mousse in Chocolate cups? They are so stinking cute! I love them and trust me, it is not just because they are cute.
They are maybe the best “S’more themed” knock off I’ve ever eaten.
If you know my mom, then you know she is a die-hard chocolate mousse fan.
Like die-hard, she loves the stuff.
Especially if it’s really light and airy as these are. Honestly, it’s so light and yet so chocolatey at the same time. Almost like a creamier whipped cream with a hint of custard. It’s so good.
So good that I actually made four, yes four batches of this mousse over the last week and a half. I changed up the recipe for one dessert and it was so good. So be on the lookout for a few more mousse desserts coming your way over the next few weeks.
They are all different, all amazing, and all so good in their own way!
Let’s talk about the chocolate cups.
These highly edible, highly delicious, chocolate cups. They’re actually filled with graham crackers on the bottom. Yep, just chocolate and graham crackers and they are too are so good.
The mousse may have been my mom’s favorite part about these, but the chocolate cups are my dad’s. The crunch from the hard chocolate and the graham crackers with the light whipped mousse is like texture heaven.
Then the marshmallow frosting.
That you actually get to toast!!
It’s pretty fun.
Here’s the thing about the frosting.
It is pretty easy to make, but it requires a kitchen torch. Which I do not have.
I could have just left the frosting un-toasted, but no, I needed the warm toasty marshmallow to complete my s’more. I know I could have just toasted a real marshmallow and called it a day. And if that’s what you want to do I have no problem with that. But I had to do the frosting…..
So I found a long-handled lighter (you know, one of those grill lighters or large candle lighters) and spent a good five minutes on each cup or cupcake or whatever you want to call them.
Best decision ever.
But, I can’t really recommend it since it took me forever.
Although like I said, it was so worth it!
If you want to make things super duper easy though, just toast some marshmallows and throw them on top. Whatever you do, make the warm chocolate ganache. It is just some chocolate, milk or cream and lots of vanilla, but it is good.
Oh, and I heard some buzz around the internet that tomorrow is national S’mores days. I don’t know this for sure since I do not really follow those national food days, but if it is then you kind of have to make these.
It’s a National day after all.
Ah….(just checked) tomorrow, Saturday, August 10th, is indeed National S’mores Day.

Hi, do you know if the marshmallow cream can be used inside of a log cake? Will the creme stay stiff or will it break down?
thanks for your help!
