Simple Chocolate Whipped Cream Mousse Stuffed Strawberries

Pin It

My simple stuffed strawberries are perfect for dressing up any occasion of a sophisticated touch. This simple chocolate whipped cream has a light, silky, mousse-like texture that turns plain strawberries into a decadent dessert. The filling can be used as a dip for fruit, a or even a topping on cakes. I love the look of the mousse piped into strawberries, like I did in my No-Bake Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries so I just had to create a variation on the idea!


These fancy looking treats are sooo easy to make and are guaranteed to impress! They start with fresh fruit. Rinse and dry your strawberries.

Slice off tips so they can stand on their own. 

Fill a piping bag fitted with a start tip, or a plastic sandwich bag with the corner snipped off, with chocolate whipped cream mousse (recipe below).

Alternative
Skip the cocoa powder and simply fill your strawberries with whipped topping, or a can of whipped cream!


Chocolate Whipped Cream Mousse

Ingredients*
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons white granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

Stir all the ingredients together in a large bowl until combined. Cover and refrigerate for about an hour to chill and dissolve sugar and cocoa powder.

Once chilled, whip on med-high speed, until fluffy, soft peaks form, and you have reached your desired consistency.

Return the mixture to the refrigerator while you prepare your strawberries. Fill strawberries just before serving.

*Alternatively you can mix together a tub of thawed whipped topping with cocoa powder for a simple alternative for a chocolate whipped cream.
