Chocolate Reindeer Poop

Okay, okay, so it’s just chocolate mousse – but how fun to call it Chocolate Reindeer Poop right? I know my niece and nephew get a kick out of such silliness!

I remember making chocolate mousse in school Home Economics lessons and it was so easy to do and tasted so much better than the stuff you can buy in stores.

If I could make mousse successfully at the age of 13, I’m pretty sure you will be able to, too!

Ingredients used in this recipe

The full ingredients list and instructions are found in the printable recipe card at the end of this post, but here is a brief outline so you know what to expect from the recipe.

I highly recommend always reading a recipe all the way through before starting.

  • Heavy Cream/Double Cream, Sugar, Eggs
  • Chocolate Chips – Dark, Milk, or Semi-Sweet, depending on your preference.
  • Whipped Cream and Maraschino Cherries (for decorating, optional)

This recipe contains raw eggs so bear that in mind if this is a concern for you.

However, using the freshest eggs, practicing good food hygiene, and depending on your country’s food supply chain, means the risk of contracting salmonella is likely to be minimal.

The UK, Lion Mark eggs are virtually free of salmonella and have been declared as safe:

“The risk of salmonella is now so low you needn’t worry. And that’s true whether you’re a fit healthy adult, or whether you’re pregnant or elderly or young. It’s only people on strictly medically supervised diets who need to avoid those eggs.”
