Our miniature tarts, filled with creamy, rich chocolate mousse, are the perfect antidote when you’re craving something sweet. The homemade mousse gets some thickening help from the gelatin, which helps it set. Agar agar, made from red algae, can be used in place of gelatin if you’d prefer to keep this dessert vegetarian. The whipped topping helps lighten the texture of the mousse. Be sure to gently fold it in and not overmix since you don’t want to deflate all the air that’s just been added. We’ve used well-loved vanilla extract, but almond or coffee extract would complement the flavors of these ingredients too.
