Chocolate Mousse Chocolates

I think there was a time when I believed that good things happened to good people. I believed that those who worked hard were rewarded, that karma was to some extent, the way of the world.

Life has proven me wrong.

Time and again I’ve seen horrendous things happen to the best of people, to those with kind and giving hearts and caring and compassionate ways. I’ve seen the passionate work themselves into the ground without a cent to show and I’ve seen those with lower morals succeed simply because they know how to play the game.

And today I’ve seen and felt about all that I can take.

Today I just can’t understand. I can’t make sense. I can’t cry enough tears and I can’t make it right.

Today I feel like being angry and bitter and furious with the injustice of it all.

Today I feel like too many people are losing the good fight.


Chocolate Mousse Chocolates

  • 1 cup cold coconut cream*
  • 1 tablespoon honey**
  • 2 tablespoons cacao or cocoa
  • 100 grams dark chocolate, melted
  1. Place the coconut cream, honey, cacao or cocoa into your processor and blend to combine. Spoon the mixture into an air tight container and place in the fridge over night.
  2. The following day remove the lid and drain off any liquid. Spoon the mixture evenly into the holes of a mini silicon muffin tray and place the mixture into the freezer for several hours and until it is very firm.
  3. Once firm, use two forks to dip each mousse into the melted chocolate. Once dipped, sit them on a tray lined with baking paper and place them in the fridge to set and to store.
  4. Serve. Eat. Enjoy.

*I use the solid component of a 270ml tin of coconut cream that has been stored in the fridge for a minimum of 24 hours. A simple method is to tip your cold can of coconut cream upside down, open the bottom end with a can opener and drain off the liquid, leaving the solid component to make your mousse. If it doesn’t sound easy, it is. I promise.

**you can use rice malt syrup if you prefer.

    I’m sorry you’re feeling that way, Bianca. I struggle with this, too. I never believed in karma as such – there are too many large scale atrocities for it to make sense to me. But I have previously expected that awful things would be more evenly distributed between people. It just seemed right that everyone would have (roughly) the same challenges, and opportunities for growth.

    But it doesn’t work that way. There is no ‘fair’, and life isn’t a movie or a fable. We are all dealt different cards, and all we can do is play those cards to the best of our abilities.

    I don’t know if it helps at all, but I take comfort from the fact that one person’s worst day, is always another person’s best day. This evening friends of mine welcomed their first child into the world. Everything may seem steeped with pain to you, but somewhere in NSW, at least one couple is experiencing a level of joy they’d never thought possible.

    Sending you big healthy hugs tonight x

    • Thank you Janice, you have a great perspective on all of this. A new baby!! It doesn’t get much better than that! Thank you for taking the time to write. I really appreciate it. xxx

    Oh my dear friend, I am so sorry you are finding life tough. It is an unfair, unjust world we live in, which is why it is even more important that the nice people/ good guys in life ( and you’re at the top of that list), keep on going. You make the world a better place, that’s all any of us can aspire to do. sending you love across the oceans, Wendywoo xx

    • Oh Wendy you are far too nice to me!!! Thank YOU!! Seeing just how unjust and unfair it can be is difficult, but on the other hand I have many blessings to count. I hope all is well with you and yours. Sending love. xxxxxx
