Petite Chocolate Mousse Cups and a Dove Chocolate Discoveries Giveaway

I know I’m guilty of neglecting my deep love of chocolate desserts. I have neglected my readers and their love of chocolate desserts. Most importantly, my family has been neglected. I think I have a delicious way of making up for the precious chocolate time lost.


When I was contacted by Dove Chocolate Discoveries to sample their INCREDIBLE line of chocolates, I was a wee bit excited!

Dove happens to be one of my favorite chocolates. While shopping with the kids and they aren’t looking, I usually sneak a bag of their amazing dark chocolates into the grocery cart. I then sneak them into the house and quietly eat them when they’re not looking.

This weekend we baked with almost every product from the line and made four different desserts! I will post the next recipe when I announce the winner this week.  Every one of the products was exceptional. I couldn’t stop nibbling on the the milk chocolate-covered cinnamon-dusted almonds! Gabriella kept sneaking a bar from the milk chocolate box. My mom reminded me to make sure I saved her something to try. 
I forgot to mention that they have a FABULOUS chocolate martini mix! Oh my goodness!

This incredible line of chocolates is not available in any store. You could buy them through a Dove Chocolatier or you could sign up to become one. You could turn your passion for chocolate into a career! If you prefer to buy through a Chocolatier, here is where you can be matched with one: https://www.dove-chocolate-discoveries.com/corporate/leads/contact-us?requestInfo=true). The Chocolatier will bring you samples to taste at your Girls’ Night In with your friends, and they will have the opportunity to purchase Dove Chocolate Discoveries products at the party. 
If you are interested in hosting your very own Girls’ Night In party on 9/22, you will be entered into a drawing of all parties held that night to win a special product bundle. 20 lucky hostesses will win the bundle! The $50 product bundle that hosts will receive for a $350+ party is in addition to what the hosts self select with the free product credit that they will earn. Dove Discoveries will select the products provided in the bundle. Hosts select free product based on the amount of free product credit earned on sales.
Disclaimer: Dove Chocolate Discoveries provided me with a delicious product bundle and will provide the exact same delicious product bundle to one lucky winner. My opinions expressed in this post are entirely mine.

Read a little about Dove Chocolate Discoveries™

DOVE CHOCOLATE DISCOVERIES™ launched in February 2007 as one of the latest ventures from Mars, Incorporated. Now, a global leader in chocolate, Mars roots goes back to the kitchen. In the 1880′S, when Frank Mars was a young boy, his mother taught him to hand-dip chocolate. With his wife, Ethel, Frank started a home candy-making business in Tacoma, Washington, that eventually grew into Mars, Inc., a world-wide industry leader in chocolate confections. Going back to its direct-selling heritage, Mars created DOVE CHOCOLATE DISCOVERIES™. Since then, the Chocolatier sales force has taken off. There are now Chocolatiers in 48 states. 

With over 100 years of candy-making experience behind us, DOVE CHOCOLATE DISCOVERIES™ is dedicated to creating the ultimate chocolate experience – in the comfort of your own home, providing an opportunity to share some sweet moments with family and friends. Plus, as a Chocolatier, you’re walking in the door with respect and recognition. What could be sweeter than that!

Petite Chocolate Mousse Cups

Ingredients
chocolate mousse (1 envelope of the mousse starter kit)
8 ounces (1 envelope) of the Milk chocolate-covered cinnamon-dusted almonds
12 petite chocolate dessert cups

Directions
1) Make the chocolate mousse according to the mix directions. Chill the mousse for about 2 hours.
2) When you’re ready to fill the cup, add the mousse to your pastry bag. We used a star tip. Fill each chocolate dessert cup with the chocolate mousse.
2) Grind the Milk chocolate-covered cinnamon-dusted almonds in a food processor. Do not over grind the almonds or the chocolate covering will melt.
2) Sprinkle the ground almonds on top of each dessert cup and ENJOY!
 
Good luck!
