i think it’s pretty clear by now that i am in love with nutella. i’ve made nutella stuffed chocolate chip cookies, nutella brownies, and now this nutella mousse. the best part is this recipe is so easy to make. only two ingredients, and bam – a decadent dessert. don’t worry, you don’t have to tell anyone it’s that easy ;)
- 1/2 cup nutella
- 1 1/2 cups light cool whip
in a mixing bowl, combine the nutella and cool whip. use a hand mixer to whisk until the mousse is light and fluffy. spoon into dessert bowls and garnish with a little whipped cream and oreo crumbs. serve immediately, or store in the refrigerator.
because nutella is already so rich and dense, i reached for the light cool whip versus the real stuff – heavy whipping cream. with the strong flavor of nutella, the flavor wasn’t comprised at all and it’s makes the dessert just a little lighter and ‘healthier.’
