Nutella Mousse

Cheers to the weekend! To celebrate the end of a busy week, we are whipping up an insanely easy and addicting dessert. All you need is four ingredients, fifteen minutes (plus some time to chill), and a big spoon to eat straight from the bowl. Not that we've done that.

You can serve this a variety of ways, such as in small ramekins or individual shot glasses. We like to scoop it from one of our medium wavy bowls and let guests garnish with their choice of berries and cookies. This mousse is easy enough to make any night of the week, but also worthy of a spot on your next dinner party menu.
