Chocolate Mousse Recipe: Decadence Made Simple

Welcome to a world where decadence meets simplicity, where every spoonful is a journey to chocolatey bliss aka my pregnancy cravings! I am not the best when it comes to baking, but this recipe is foolproof and extremely simple to make.

Today, we’re diving into desserts with a timeless classic: Chocolate Mousse. Not just any mousse, but a recipe that will elevate your culinary skills and leave your taste buds giddy. So, roll up your sleeves and let’s get our sweet tooth on!

Chocolate Mousse

Simplicity of Chocolate Mousse

  1. Quick and Easy: With just a few simple steps, you can create a gourmet dessert that’s sure to impress.
  2. Minimal Ingredients: No need for fancy or hard-to-find ingredients—just pantry staples and your favorite chocolate.
  3. Customizable: Get creative with flavor variations and toppings to suit your taste preferences and occasion. I topped mine with LINDOR Milk Chocolate Truffles

Top it Up


In crafting my chocolate mousse recipe, I chose LINDOR Milk Chocolate Truffles for a delectable reason: their unparalleled quality and irresistible flavor. Plus, their convenient size and easy availability make them a hassle-free addition to any recipe. However, you can use any toppings that your heart desires! I have been having wild pregnancy cravings for LINDOR Milk Chocolate Truffles through out my pregnancy, and I popped one in the fridge to easily grate over the chocolate mousse!

Ingredients Needed

Equipment Needed

  1. Mixing Bowls: Have a few mixing bowls on hand for various tasks like melting chocolate and whipping the cream. Choose bowls that are large enough to accommodate your ingredients comfortably.
  2. Stand Mixer or Electric Mixer: An electric mixer or stand mixer (I love my KitchenAid) can expedite the process, especially when achieving stiff peaks when forming the whipped cream.
  3. Heatproof Bowl: When melting chocolate, a heatproof bowl placed over a pot of simmering cream (double boiler method) prevents scorching and ensures smooth, even melting.
  4. Rubber Spatula: A rubber spatula is invaluable for gently folding the cream into the chocolate mixture, maintaining the mousse’s airy texture.
  5. Serving Glasses or Bowls: Choose elegant glasses or bowls for serving your chocolate mousse. Individual servings add a touch of sophistication to your presentation.

Chocolate Mousse
Prep Time:5 minutes
Cook Time:1 hour
Yields: 2

Ingredients

Chocolate Mousse

  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Whipped Cream

  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp powdered sugar

Instructions

Chocolate Mousse

  • Heat a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Add heavy cream to the pot to heat up for around 5-6 minutes.
  • In a separate medium-sized mixing bowl, add in chocolate chips and set aside.
  • Once the cream is heated, add to the bowl of chocolate chips. Mix with a small whisk until combined. Set aside. Sprinkle with a dash of salt and mix.

Whipped Cream

  • In a stand mixer, combine the whipping cream, vanilla extract and powdered sugar and mix for 6-8 minutes until peaks have formed and the mixture is a whipped cream consistency. Start the stand mixer on a low speed (around 2) and then gradually go up to 6-8 speed.
  • Once whipped cream has formed, save about ½ cup of whipped cream for topping.

Assembly

  • Fold the whipped cream into the bowl of chocolate chips. Ensuring that the mixture is airy and fluffy. Once combined, cover with cling wrap and place in the fridge for 10-15 minutes.
  • Remove mousse from fridge and add into short glasses. Repeat with the remaining mousse.
  • Top with a dollop of whipped cream followed by chocolate shavings and a pinch of sea salt. Serve and enjoy!
