TIP OF THE DAY: Chocolate Cups

A chocolate-lover’s dessert fantasy:
milk and dark chocolate cups filled with
chocolate mousse.Chocolate cups from Godiva.

End dinner with chocolate cups—but not to drink from.

For an easy and elegant dessert at the end of a sumptuous dinner, simply place a scoop of ice cream into a molded chocolate cup. Garnish with a berry and a mint sprig, and you’ve got an impressive crowd-pleaser.

  • Think beyond vanilla and chocolate ice cream to coffee, strawberry, mint and other flavors that pair easily with chocolate.
  • For something really rich, fill the cups with mousse. Here’s Julia Child’s chocolate mousse recipe.
  • We also like a filling of custard topped with fruit.

 

You can find chocolate cups at specialty food stores and baking supply stores. Or, get the Godiva chocolate cups in the photo. If you’re shopping online, make sure you purchase chocolate cups and not dessert cups.

Crunchy meringue cups can substitute for chocolate cups and are available at specialty food stores plus most French bakeries.
