The rich, creamy foundation for this nearly instant mousse is nonfat cottage cheese. It whips to a smooth consistency in a minute or so in the food processor, and then gets flavored and sweetened with cocoa powder, powdered sugar, and vanilla. Spooned into small glasses and topped with whipped topping and crushed candy canes, it’s an easy, super-quick, very merry treat.
