Salted Chocolate Mousse Tartlets

Salted Chocolate Mousse Tartlets - La Cuisine d'Helene

I am back in Canada and so happy to see my family! Even though I had a great trip in Asia, it's comforting to be with your loved ones. I am still tired today, trying to get back into my normal routine. It will be hectic because I still have to get ready for the holidays. I am still waiting for my children's gift lists and they have to get together to decorate the tree if they want Santa to come.

Before leaving for my vacation, I made these Salted Chocolate Mousse Tartlets and could not stop licking the bowl. It is the quickest mousse that I have ever made and one of the best. I like the fact that it does not contain eggs. If you have guests that are gluten-free you could serve the mousse in a wine glass just for them. It will look chic and they will appreciate the fact that you did not forget them. I did not add sugar in my mousse and added Amarula instead. It is delicious!
