This Chocolate Covered Strawberry Chocolate Mousse recipe combines two iconic desserts into one decadent treat. Harry & David Chocolate Covered Strawberries make a gorgeous topping, making this dessert perfect for sharing with the one you love.

Chocolate covered strawberries are one of our favorite things. They are so super delicious and one of life's best pleasures. This chocolate mousse is not only inspired by a chocolate covered strawberry, it's topped with one! The mousse is silky and smooth but also rich and creamy. It's topped with a strawberry powder, which is made from crushed freeze dried strawberries and is one of the best ways to use fruit flavors! The best part on top though comes from the huge, delicious Harry & David Chocolate Covered Strawberry. It's absolutely mouthwatering!

  5. Turn off the heat and stir in the chocolate. Chill the mixture in the fridge for 1 to 2 hours, stirring often.
  6. After 2 hours, beat the cold heavy cream on medium-high speed until soft peaks form and you have whipped cream.
