This barely qualifies as a recipe, but I suppose it has more than one ingredient and some instructions, so it'll pass.
I found myself in the kitchen earlier, staring at yet another possible chocolate cake for the book. It wasn't quite what I was after, but it did leave me with a couple of very handy things leftover:
- A couple of tablespoons of Nutella
- ~1/3 cup of whipped cream
aka: deconstructed Nutella mousse
So I constructed it.
To make the mousse, stir the Nutella frantically for a minute to loosen it up a bit. Don't heat it, it just doesn't seem to help. Fold in about a quarter of the whipped cream to lighten the Nutella a bit. Fold in the rest of the whipped cream. Drool for 10 minutes while trying to get the glam shot of the not-so-photogenic brown glop. Eat.
