Aaaaand….the aquafaba craze continues at Downton Cabin.
After experimenting with veggie burgers all morning, I had about a cup of aquafaba from the black beans, so I decided to try another dessert. I found a recipe for aquafaba chocolate mousse here, and thought I’d use it to experiment with little chocolate mousse bites, and they turned out very well!
Chocolate Mousse Bites
- 1 cup aquafaba (or whatever you get from draining one can of beans–I used black beans)
- ⅛ tsp cream of tartar
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- seeds from 1 vanilla bean pod
- 6 oz semi-sweet chocolate, melted (make sure it is dairy-free)
- 1 tsp. coconut oil
Whip the aquafaba and cream of tartar until it forms peaks (about five minutes)….
Add the sugar and the vanilla….
Then make the hard chocolate topping: melt (in the microwave):
- 1/2 cup of chocolate chips
- 2 tsps coconut oil
And pour the melted chocolate over the tops of the little cups. You can cover the top, or just make little squiggles…and you can add a nut for a nice crunchy finish!
This looks a bit messy, but once they’re popped out of the tin, they should (fingers crossed) look okay…
And….just wait for them to be completely frozen and knock them out of the little muffin tins and EAT THESE DELICIOUS LITTLE SUCKERS!!
Here they are with a few of my peanut butter buckeyes–SO good!
