This Simple Chocolate Mousse only requires 6 ingredients and 10 minutes of prep. It’s so easy and completely luscious!
This recipe was developed by me for Safeway whom I have an ongoing relationship with. All opinions are 100% my own. Thank you for helping to support the brands that I love and make Belly Full possible!
When Paul and I first started dating, he sort of laid his cards on the table immediately and told me that he’s not a chocolate, flower, or card giver.
Ok, fair enough. Lucky for him, those things weren’t at all deal breakers for me.
I told him that I need the toilet seat down, kitchen sink sponge rung out, and a phone call if he’s running late (a phone call! That shows our age, huh?)
Almost 15 years later, I can tell you I have not missed receiving candy, flowers, or cards. He makes up for it 1,000 fold by doing everything else. Literally.
He does the laundry, vacuums, he cleans the bathrooms, he’s my plumber, electrician, builder, and never once has he forgotten to call if he’s going to be out later than expected with the guys. He is a hands-on father, and never complains. And everyone knows how much he makes me laugh. I would curl up and die without him, I’m so incredibly spoiled. He’s amazing.
BUT, I do love chocolate, and flowers, and cards. I’m not crazy! So, you know what? I simply buy them for myself!
We don’t really exchange gifts or go out to dinner for Valentine’s Day, but I love to make it fun for the kids.
Safeway’s exclusive debi lilly design™ collection has everything you need to make Valentine’s Day lovely and fun! There are so many cute items to choose from like vases, candles, teddy bears, and gorgeous pre-arranged flower bouquets that are ready to “chop & drop” – just simply cut the stems to length and drop them right into a beautiful debi lilly design vase.
Aren’t these vases adorable? They come in several different colors, are light weight, but very sturdy. Great quality and so affordable that you could easily decorate a few rooms in your house. And if you don’t want to refill them with more flowers, use them to hold colored pencils!
The debi lilly design collection has wonderful, on trend products that are perfect for entertaining any time of year, not just limited to Valentine’s Day.
Now what would Cupid’s Day be without chocolate? Sad, I say! So, in addition to filling the rooms with whimsical containers, I’m whipping up this simple chocolate mousse, and you should, too. Everyone will love you forever. It’s sublime.
