These 4-Ingredient Chocolate Mousse Cups are about as easy as it gets! They’re ready in 10 minutes and there’s no baking required which makes them a perfect last minute dessert!
Okay, I know I said my 5-Ingredient Red Velvet Cupcakes were SUPER easy, and they are, they might just be the easiest cupcakes ever. But these 4-Ingredient Chocolate Mouse Cups are an even EASIER dessert, I know, you didn’t think that was even possible! But with Valentine’s Day just a few days away, quick desserts are essential. You don’t want to spend all day slaving away in the kitchen, you want to spend it with your love. After all, time is precious. My husband and I’s OUR time is the most important to me. In a marriage, it’s important to be a little independent while still being one, as long as you keep your priorities straight.
Speaking of time, I get asked on a weekly basis why I blog when I already have a full-time job because the blog takes up so much time. The truth is, I LOVE blogging and I NEED a creative outlet. If I wasn’t blogging, I’d be filling that time with something else. It’s probably better that I blog than watch another season of some B-rate TV show.
Although I could really go for some binge watching right now, I’ll wait until House of Cards pops up on Netflix next week. The biggest thing is that Matt supports me in this venture and it’s his work behind the scenes that makes Sugar & Soul possible. And by behind the scenes, I mean cleaning up the mess that is me and my blog.
So thanks, Matty, though you’ll never read this because you LIVE the blog and don’t need to read it. One day, I might just take advantage of that fact 😉
I felt drawn to blogging for years before I started doing it and it’s something I’m really truly passionate about. It’s a dream and a reality at the same time. Through blogging I’ve made some amazing friends, I’ve unlocked skills and talents I never knew I had, and most importantly, it makes me HAPPY! As stressful and time-consuming as this blog might be, it rewards me a thousand times over. Kinda, like a marriage in itself, you married folks can understand that, right?
So while I’ve got a full week lined up with Date Night in mind for Valentine’s Day, I’m curious what you do for YOU. What makes you happy and what makes you LOVE YOURSELF?
While you ponder, let’s talk a little about these 4-Ingredient Chocolate Mousse Cups, shall we? First off, they’re super easy, just some heavy cream, pudding mix, and confectioners’ sugar whipped up and piped into these Belgian chocolate cups.
