Abuelita Chocolate is as Mexican as you can possibly get, as far as chocolates go. I don't know who that abuelita is on the packaging, but she instantly reminds me of Mexican hot chocolate and other chocolatey desserts! For this chocolate mousse recipe I first made a ganache. Ganache is a glaze, icing, sauce, or filling for pastries made from chocolate and cream. The trick is to chop the chocolate into smaller pieces so it melts easily. Heat it up but make sure it does not boil!
Basically, this recipe is a delicious Mexican chocolate mousse, topped with toasted quinoa to give it a little crunch. Yes, please! It's an easy dessert to put together. You just need six ingredients and about an hour, with only 20 minutes' cook time. Quinoa isn't a Mexican ingredient, but I love it as an earthier type of crumble or topping.
It's a great dessert to make for parties, as you can serve them in small, portable cups. Enjoy!
