Fast and Easy Recipe For Hazelnut Mousse

Hazelnut Mousse: The Fastest, Easiest Way Into Someone's Heart

This Valentine's Day, end your meal with a tantalizing chocolate recipe that's ready in less time than it takes to defrost frozen cheesecake. My favorite no-stress, no-fuss recipe is this velvety gianduja mousse made from nothing more than crème fraîche, whipped cream, and that oldie but goodie, Nutella.

With a standing mixer, the recipe takes less than 10 minutes of active prep, and if you're really not up to the task, you can substitute already-whipped cream and be done with it in seconds. The best part? It's creamy, rich but not too cloying, and full of chocolate hazelnut flavor. No one will ever guess that part of the chocolate indulgence comes from a can. Want the recipe? Then keep reading.
