Planning a party or a special event is never complete without a few dessert items. A great way to plan out desserts for an event in West Miami apartments is focusing on chocolate. You will give your guests something interesting to finish off their meal and most of your guests will enjoy the sweet treat.

Chocolate Dipped Strawberries

This classic dessert is easy to make and takes only a few minutes. Melt chocolate chips in a small saucepan. Allow the chocolate to cool slightly, but do not allow it to harden. Dip fresh and clean strawberries into the chocolate until the bottom half is covered. Set the strawberries and chocolate on a plate and then place it in the fridge to cool down and allow the chocolate to harden.

Chocolate Espresso Mousse

Mousse is a light and refreshing dessert for any event. For this recipe, melt 6 ounces of chocolate in a microwave and then set it aside to cool. In a small saucepan, beat two egg yolks, 1 and 1/2 teaspoons of espresso powder, 3/4 cups of fresh cream and 4 tablespoons of sugar. Stir constantly to mix the ingredients, but do not allow it to simmer or boil. It will only take two minutes to properly heat and mix. Pour the mixture into your slightly cooled chocolate and whisk it together. Place the chocolate mixture in your fridge for 30 minutes to cool. You can finish up your dessert by beating 3/4 cups of heavy cream with 1 tablespoon of sugar in an electric mixer and topping your mousse with the whipped cream.

Make Chocolate Butter

Chocolate butter is an easy spread you can put on any item for a quick and sweet dessert. Put 1/2 cup of butter at room temperature and 1/2 cup of melted chocolate chips in a bowl. Mix it together and then add 1 teaspoon of cocoa powder and a pinch of salt. Mix the ingredients until it is smooth and then serve it at room temperature. You can also spread the chocolate on cookies, a sweet bread or set it up as a dip during your event.
