Day 116 : Chocolate Almond Mousse Dipped Strawberries

This is the result of needing to use up a few things I had in the fridge.  I had marscapone left over from a while ago and a whole pint of stawberries from Easter that hadn’t gotten eaten yet.  I immediately thought that some sort of dip would be good, and was thinking of going with a maple syrup type thing, but per Jeff’s request, decided on the chocolate instead.  I was surprised at how similar the taste and texture were to the chocolate mousse I make out of heavy whipping cream!  If it hadn’t been for Jeff too, I might have added a bit of coffee to really make this great, but it was pretty darn good as is too.  I used almond extract to give it a little something extra, but if you prefer vanilla, or maybe coconut, or even orange that is up to you.  I just used what I had left of the marscapone and so we ended up with more dip than we needed for the pint of strawberries, but we put the rest into a little sugar cone which was really good as well.
