Chocolate Mousse in Crispy Ginger Curls

Look for mangoes with sweet scents and rosy colors and avoid those that have black spots or are too soft—they can be overripe and stringy.


Ingredient Set Name: 

Chocolate Mousse


Ingredient Line: 
1 large mango, diced (1 ½ cups)
Ingredient Line: 
1 medium avocado, diced (¾ cup)
Ingredient Line: 
¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
Ingredient Line: 
1 Tbs. brewed espresso or strong black coffee
Ingredient Line: 
1 Tbs. rum, optional
Ingredient Line: 
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Ingredient Line: 
¾ cup semisweet chocolate chips, melted

Ingredient Set Name: 

Ginger Curls


Ingredient Line: 
2 Tbs. maple syrup
Ingredient Line: 
1 Tbs. canola oil
Ingredient Line: 
2 tsp. ground ginger
Ingredient Line: 
2 8-inch flour tortillas, quartered


  1. To make Chocolate Mousse: Blend mango, avocado, cocoa powder, coffee, rum, if using, and vanilla in food processor until smooth. Add melted chocolate, and blend until smooth. Chill 2 to 3 hours.
  2. To make Ginger Curls: Preheat oven to 325F. Coat 8 muffin cups with cooking spray. Whisk together maple syrup, oil and ginger in small bowl. Brush one side of each tortilla quarter with syrup and ginger mix. Press gently into muffin tin with brushed side facing up so tortilla holds slight cup-shaped form. Bake 10 to 15 minutes, or until crisp and golden. Cool on rack.
  3. Spoon mousse into curls. Top with coconut and mango, if desired.

Comments on this Recipe

This is very good. I would call it a pudding though because it is denser than what I consider a mousse. Not very sweet but that is to its credit. My kids love it too.
