Today I was actually planning on making a peanut butter and chocolate pie, but someone had eaten my peanut butter. All that was in the cabinet was reduced fat. I think some things should be reduced fat, but desserts are not one of them. So to avoid a trip to the store I decided I would make something with the jar of Nutella sitting beside the reduced fat peanut butter.
So I made the mousse initially to put into a pie, but it never made it into the crust. There were some strawberries in fridge and I thought what could be better than dipping the strawberries into the creamy mousse.
1 cup whipping cream
1 cup Nutella
1 tsp vanilla extract
In a mixer beat the cream and vanilla until it forms soft peaks. The cream should be very cold. Usually I put my cream and the mixing bowl in the freezer for a few minutes before I whip it. The colder it is the better it whips.
Then with a rubber spatula fold in the Nutella.
Serve with a spoon and a big plate of strawberries for dipping. Since there was no mousse left, I'll have to make the pie another day.
