Twilight Delight Mousse

I really do enjoy being part of the FoodBuzz Family, being part of the tastemaker program I get to enjoy samples of new upcoming products from vendors that partner with FoodBuzz. This Opt-in has been my personal favorite so far, FoodBuzz joined forces with Ghirardelli Chocolates. I was given 3 large bars of chocolate and 2 bags of mini bars, each has its own unique flavor and richness but I loved them all. When I opened my little brown cardboard box and found all of these wonderful chocolates I was just beside myself with happiness. I of course started to think of what I could make, however this time my husband decided to step in and take charge of the decision making and he chose the following recipe and which chocolate bar to use in it...he made an excellent choice, this recipe turned out awesome.

1 7 oz. - Bar Ghirardelli Intense Dark Twilight Delight
1 1/2 C. - Mini Marshmallows
1/2 C. - Milk
2 C. - Heavy Whipping Cream (whipped)
1/4 Tsp. - Sea Salt (garnish)
2 Mini Bars - Ghirardelli Intense Dark Sea Salt Bars (garnish)

In a heavy saucepan, heat the candy, marshmallows and milk, and heat over low heat until melted and smooth. Set aside to cool while you beat the cream. Place the heavy cream into a stand mixer with the whip attachment or use your hand mixer, beat at high speed until still peaks form. Fold the melted chocolate mixture into the whipped cream, turn from the bottom up and over using a rubber spatula. Spoon into single serving parfait dishes, and garnish with shaved Intense Dark Sea Salt chocolates and top it with a pinch of extra sea salt.

Side Note: You can also spoon this into a 9 inch Chocolate Cookie Pie Crust, chill for 3 hours then garnish and serve.
