Mexican Chocolate Yogurt Mousse Cups

This recipe for Mexican Chocolate Yogurt Mousse Cups is a tribute to my dear Abuela, who LOVED Mexican Chocolate. This rich, light dessert has all the best flavors of cinnamon and chocolate.

Step 1

Heat heavy cream in a small saucepan over medium heat until steam begins to rise. Add semi-sweet chocolate chips, brown sugar and cinnamon; whisk until the chocolate has melted and the brown sugar has dissolved.

Step 2

Remove from heat and whisk in vanilla extract.

Step 3

Pour into a heat-proof container and allow to cool before covering and refrigerating until chilled, about 2 hours.

Step 4

Once the mixture has chilled, pour it into a large bowl {or the bowl of a stand mixer} and beat until the it is light and fluffy.

Step 5

Carefully fold in the yogurt, a bit at a time until the mixture is uniform and smooth.

Step 6

Spoon into individual serving cups. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve. Top with chocolate shavings before serving if desired.
