  • 1/2 cup whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips 50% cacao or higher will work best
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 chocolate wafer cookies
  • 1/2 cup fresh raspberries
  • more chocolate chips for drizzling on top optional


  • Heat 1/3 cup cream in a small saucepan over low-medium heat, stirring frequently, until just starting to bubble around the edges.
  • Place chocolate chips in a medium-size bowl. Pour hot cream over and let sit until chocolate chips are melted.
  • Add vanilla and whisk until mixed. Add remaining cream and whisk until mixed. Refrigerate overnight.
  • Using a stand mixer or handheld electric mixer, whip refrigerated chocolate cream until thick and fluffy.
  • Place a chocolate wafer cookie in the bottom of two custard dishes. Top each with mousse and raspberries.
  • Melt the remaining chocolate chips in the microwave on 70% power, stirring every 20-30 seconds. Drizzle over each mudslide, then top with another crumbled wafer cookie.
