Chocolate-cinnamon mousse recipe

Serves 2

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 4 ounces gluten-free semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon chopped nuts or gluten-free toffee candy pieces for garnish (optional)

Directions:

  1. Melt the chocolate chips in the top part of a double boiler or in a metal bowl sitting over a pan of simmering water.
  2. Add the ground cinnamon to the melted chocolate and mix well.
  3. Beat the whipping cream until it is frothy and stiffens up.
  4. Fold the melted chocolate mixture into the whipping cream and mix well with a rubber spatula. There will likely be chocolate at the bottom of the bowl, so be sure to scrape it from the bottom and mix it in.

  7. Garnish with the chopped nuts or gluten-free toffee pieces.
