Blender Chocolate Mousse

I found this recipe in 1989 in a magazine and have taken this long to get around to trying it.  I needed to make a dessert quickly before heading out on an errand and this fit the bill.  It took minutes to make and is chilling in the refrigerator, ready for supper when I get home.


  • 1 cup evaporated milk, undiluted, scalded*
  • 6 oz. chocolate chips (one heaping cup)
  • 1 Tblsp. granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla

The reason for heating the milk is to melt the chocolate chips, so heating until almost boiling in a pan or heating until very hot in the microwave will work.  If heating in a pan, stir constantly to keep film from forming and to keep the mixture from sticking to the bottom of the pan.

Place in a blender the chocolate chips, sugar and vanilla.  Pour the scalded milk into the blender and blend until mixture is smooth.

Pour into four dessert dishes.

Cover and chill for several hours.  Serve with whipped cream or topping.
