Reduced-fat whipped topping helps lower the fat count of this easy-to-make chilled dessert.

Ingredients

2
eggs
1/4
cup sugar
1
cup half-and-half
1
package (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips (1 cup)
3
cups frozen (thawed) reduced-fat whipped topping

Directions

  • 1 Beat eggs in small bowl with electric mixer on high speed about 3 minutes or until thick and lemon colored. Gradually beat in sugar.
  • 2 Heat half-and-half in 2-quart saucepan over medium heat just until hot. Gradually stir at least half of the hot half-and-half into egg yolk mixture; stir back into hot half-and-half in saucepan. Cook over low heat about 5 minutes, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens (do not boil). Stir in chocolate chips until melted. Cover and refrigerate about 2 hours, stirring occasionally, just until chilled.
  • 3 Fold chocolate mixture into whipped topping. Pipe or spoon mixture into serving bowls. Immediately refrigerate any remaining dessert after serving.
Tips  

Mousse is a French term meaning “froth” or “foam.” Light and airy, traditional mousse can be sweet or savory, hot or cold.

Using a pastry bag with a star tip, pipe this decadent chocolate mousse into small foil baking cups. Top with decorative chocolate candies to complete your miniature indulgences.
