    Chocolate Mousse Pastry Cups are a simple and easy dessert recipe perfect for making ahead. Ideal for dinner parties, birthday treats and Valentine's day dessert!

    Chocolate Mousse Pastry Cups were a happy accident. I never intended to make them, but hate having any food go to waste. I was actually trying to make and photograph my Antipasto Salad Cups and has sent hubby to the store with a list.

    Like several other happy accidents (read why I made Mashed Potato Cups), hubby is to blame… or to thank depending on how you see it. Actually this one was my fault. I sent him to the store with a list, one of the items being Puff Pastry Cups. He got Puff Pastry Cups, but apparently cups are the tiny, bite-sized ones and shells are the large, multiple bite puff pastry products.

    I hadn’t worked with puff pastry in a while, so I took them out of the box, thinking they would bake up bigger. Well, they didn’t. And they were large enough to fit my chopped up antipasto. So I needed something else to make, fast and with ingredients already in my kitchen.

    Turns out I had some raspberries leftover from making fresh raspberry sauce and cream from paprika chicken. And now we had a whole new dessert: Chocolate Mousse Pastry Cups! Simple, tasty and super easy to make, they became my new go-to for every event. Book club, yes! Valentine’s Day treats, yes! Dinner party, yes!
