To celebrate Labor Day, I’m sharing a recipe for the easiest ever chocolate dessert: Blender Chocolate Mousse!

I made these for a labor free holiday, but this quick chocolate mouse will delight chocolate lovers any day of the year!

On the holiday where we celebrate the hard work we’ve done all year long, the goal is to put your feet up, enjoy the summer breeze, but still indulge in a delicious meal. So why not a menu that’s a snap to throw together?

As I always think of dessert first, I wanted to treat my family to the speediest chocolate mousse EVER. One blender, four ingredients (plus boiling water) and some downtime in the fridge and you have the ultimate chocolate dessert.

Now this speedy mousse won’t be exactly like Julia’s Mousse au Chocolat, but with only 5 minutes of prep, it’s not too shabby. Not.at.all. It’s imperative that you get the chocolate melted with the boiling water or your mousse won’t be creamy.

My fancy pants blender needed a quick scrape to ensure that the corners didn’t trap any unmelted bits. Plus, I’d recommend finding a pasteurized egg since like most classic mousse, the eggs will not be cooked.

And on your relaxing holiday weekend, the last thing you want is a food borne illness. The most difficult part of this recipe is allotting 2 hours for this blender chocolate mousse to chill before you dive in! Wishing you all a splendid, safe holiday weekend!!!
