Trader Joe's Chocolate Mousse Desserts are decadent and one of my favorite dessert items! Grab a box while they are in season and read about the fastest way to thaw them.
Have you tried the chocolate mousse cakes at Trader Joe's? I have to say that they are one of my favorite items.
They are seasonal, and usually show up in November/December, so when I see them I always grab a few boxes!
The instructions on the package have you thaw them in the refrigerator for 2 hours, but rarely do I plan ahead that far, so I usually thaw them at room temperature with great success.
How to defrost the Trader Joe's mousse desserts
Open up the package of Trader Joe's mousse desserts and remove however many of the mini mouse desserts you want to enjoy.
Place on a plate.
Leave out for 30 minutes at room temperature (or 2 hours in the refrigerator), then take the plastic wrapping off.
What do they taste like?
The mousse desserts have a delicious chocolate flavor. They aren't flavored with much else, so the dessert is pure chocolate mousse flavor.
The flavor is pretty rich, so you really only need one to feel like you had a tasty, satisfying dessert. (Though I have been tempted to eat 2 in one sitting!)
What is the texture like?
The texture is creamy and delicious. Very decadent. The bottom layer of shortbread is soft, and cuts very easily. It gives the mousse dessert a nice additional texture.
How many come in a box
6 mousse cakes come in a box. That's definitely enough for 6 servings, since you would only eat 1 mousse dessert at a time.
This is one of my favorite Trader Joe's desserts. I bought 3 boxes of them when I spotted they were back in stores! Such a simple and easy treat to enjoy, especially if you're a chocolate lover!
