Moonies – A combination of two favorites in one. Fudgy brownies topped with chocolate mousse make for a chocolate lovers dream.
It is no surprise that I am a huge fan of brownies. It can be your basic Homemade Brownies that are topped with a chocolate frosting. Or it can be something over the top. These Peanut Butter Stuffed Brownies are a must if you like peanut butter and chocolate together.
So today I am back with another brownie, but this time I am combining 2 classic desserts into one. This is a rich and fudgy brownie that is topped with a creamy chocolate mousse. You can call them “Moonies” for short if you want!
These are seriously chocolate-y and decadent. The mousse is light and airy, but still rich and chocolate-y. Put that on a fudgy brownie and you will win over any chocolate lover out there.
The trick to making the chocolate mousse is marshmallows! They are melted down and help make it stay light and fluffy, so your brownie isn’t over the top heavy and too sweet. Don’t get me wrong, they are still sweet, but not over the top sweet. You use semi-sweet chocolate for the mousse, but if you prefer dark chocolate you can use it instead.
Brownies from scratch are probably my favorite dessert. I will skip the box mix every day of the week. Chocolate brownies are one of the easiest desserts to make; they don’t involve a mixer, just a few ingredients, and you pour everything in a pan to bake. They really take about 5-7 minutes to mix up and get in the oven and if you are speedy you can even cut down on that!
Ingredients for Homemade Brownies
- Chocolate – unsweetened chocolate squares
- Vegetable Oil
- Granulated Sugar
- Baking Powder
See 7 ingredients! Can’t get that much more basic for a homemade dessert.
These chocolate mousse brownies are best stored in the fridge. You don’t want the mousse to melt and no be safe to eat. I do like to let the brownies sit out for about 20 minutes before we eat them though. Just so the brownie can get closer to room temperature and you can really taste the chocolate.
These Moonies have been a huge hit at our house, and if you love chocolate I am sure you are going to love them too! They are very easy to make, so add them to your baking list now!
