Another day filled with food and family...

Yesterday I had another Amazing day with family, in the morning Phil and I went with our 2 favorite boys, Thomas and Will to the Zoo. After that we made our way to the South shore to spend the afternoon in celebration of Palm Sunday at Gina and Jimmy's House. They prepared us an amazing lunch! With a secret recipe of Sitty's Fried Chicken to the yummy Italian Tartar sauce that I slathered on everything, this weekend was definitely a splurge.

Requested Recipe…

Hazelnut Chocolate Mousse
16 oz carton of heavy cream
2 tbsp powdered sugar
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1 cup Nutella (hazelnut chocolate spread)

In a large bowl, add cold heavy cream, using an electric mixer beat on medium speed until cream thickens, add powdered sugar and vanilla and continue to beat until cream forms soft peaks, about 5 more minutes. Add Nutella and beat until well combined, maybe another minute. Spoon into a plastic bag or piping bag and fill small cups for mini desserts (as featured in picture).

**Another way to use this Hazelnut Chocolate Mousse in a Trifle. In a trifle dish or a clear bowl, layer angel food cake of white cake chunks, strawberries and Chocolate Mousse.
