This boozy Nutella dessert recipe changes everything

Sometimes you just need a great, fast chocolate dessert -- actually, for some of us that would be all of the time. For this mousse, it's as if Lawry's took everyone's favorite flavors and combined them into something you can make in 15 minutes. What do you need? Nutella, espresso and Kahlua are folded into a whipped cream chocolate mousse that you just need to chill before serving. Although some of us just eat it right away. And remember that you can double this.



Total time: 15 minutes, plus 2 hours chilling time | Serves 4

Note: Adapted from Lawry's Prime Rib.

1/2 teaspoon instant espresso powder
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup Nutella spread
2 tablespoons Kahlua coffee liqueur
Whipped cream, for garnish
Toasted nuts or peanut brittle, for garnish

1. In a small bowl, stir the espresso powder into the heavy cream until dissolved.

2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, or in a large bowl, add the espresso mixture to the Nutella, then add the Kahlua. Mix with a whisk for 1 minute and scrape down the sides of the bowl. Continue beating until softly whipped. Spoon into a serving bowl or glasses and refrigerate for 2 hours.

3. Before serving, garnish with whipped cream and toasted nuts or peanut brittle.
