Sweeten Anyone's Day With 100-Calorie Mini Mousse Cups

Who wouldn't appreciate a little edible treat on Valentine's Day? Although you could buy a box of chocolates or take your loved one out for wine and dessert, it'll mean so much more if you make them something from scratch. And they'll especially appreciate that this recipe is low in calories — just 100 calories per decadent creamy cup!

Notes

The best part about this delicious dessert is the edible chocolate cup you serve it in! Use cupcake liners made of parchment paper rather than regular paper since they'll easily peel off your chocolate cup once it hardens. Silicone baking cups work well too.

Vegan Chocolate Mousse in Chocolate Cups

Ingredients

Edible chocolate cups:
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons dairy-free dark chocolate chips

Mousse:
1 container silken tofu (1 pound)
1/2 cup chickpeas, rinsed and drained
10 pitted dates
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
16 raspberries, washed and dried

Directions

  • Line 16 mini muffin cups with paper liners.
  • To melt the chocolate, place half a cup plus one tablespoon of chocolate chips in a glass bowl over a pot of simmering water, stirring until smooth.
  • Spoon a small scoop of melted chocolate into each paper liner. Using a pastry brush, carefully brush the melted chocolate over the bottom and up the sides of liners to coat evenly. Place the muffin tin in the freezer for at least 30 minutes to harden.
  • While the first coat of chocolate is setting, make the mousse. Place all the ingredients (except the raspberries) in a food processor and blend until smooth, several minutes. Place mousse in the fridge for at least 30 minutes. If you're making this recipe ahead of time, it's OK to leave the mousse in the fridge overnight.
  • Take the muffin tin out of the freezer and repeat, adding a second coat of melted chocolate to the chocolate cups, using the last of the chocolate chips (half a cup plus one tablespoon). Freeze for another 30 minutes.
  • Remove chocolate cups from the freezer. Remove paper liners and place on a chilled plate.
  • Using a pastry bag and icing tip, pipe mousse into the chocolate cups as if you were icing a cupcake. Top with a fresh raspberry and enjoy immediately, or keep in the fridge until ready to serve (up to a day).
