Simple Chocolate Mousse

This chocolate mousse takes just minutes to make and requires only 3 ingredients. I suppose it isn't a traditional mousse. It may be more aptly named chocolate whipped cream, but it is quick, rich, and delicious. It makes the perfect dessert as is, but would probably be equally as delightful used as frosting for a cake or as a dip for fruit or maybe as a filling between cookies!

Ingredients
10 oz of heavy cream
1/2 cup cocoa
1/2 cup powdered sugar

Directions
Pour all ingredients into a stand mixer. Beat on low until the dry ingredients get somewhat incorporated into the heavy cream to avoid making a mess, then beat on high until stiff peaks form. This should only take a couple minutes. You will want to keep an eye on it to keep from over mixing. Quite honestly, the amounts of the ingredients are more of a guideline. This is a forgiving recipe. Taste as you go to adjust for flavor and sweetness!
