Imagine that with just two simple ingredients, being able to make a luscious, chocolatey dessert. Well, your not just imagining things. This mocha mousse is that simple and oh so divine!
This is the easiest chocolate mousse recipe EVER.
When I saw this recipe all over the web, for chocolate mousse with only two ingredients, I absolutely couldn't believe it...so I had to see for myself.
Since St. Patrick's Day is coming up, I thought I'd jazz this luscious chocolate mousse up with a little irish cream liquor.
So, I guess technically, this is a 3 ingredient chocolate mousse.
I feel like this recipe is a teensy bit technique sensitive, but is easy to fix if you don't get it right the first time around. So don't worry!
I may have had one or two do-over's, but who's counting?
Since chocolate is the star here, you'll want to use a really good quality dark chocolate.
And your other ingredient is liquid. I've seen recipes call for milk, and some that call for water. Water!
I chose to use a mocha flavored almond milk with coffee that tastes amazing on it's own, but gave this chocolate mousse it's "mocha" flavor. If almond milk isn't your thing, I'd use regular milk and maybe a teaspoon of espresso powder.
With a good glug of Irish cream liquor, you've got yourself a simple, yet amazing chocolate mousse.
2 Ingredient Mocha Mousse With Irish Cream
6 oz. good quality chocolate, chopped
½ cup mocha flavored almond milk, regular milk, or water
¼ cup Irish cream liquor, such as Bailey's Irish Cream
Place chopped chocolate in the bowl of a double boiler set over a pot of barely simmering water. Stir chocolate until melted. Remove the bowl from the pot and add milk and liquor.
Set bowl inside of a large bowl filled with ice. Using a hand mixer, beat mixture until starting to thicken, but still pourable.
Divide mixture evenly into two bowls.
Refrigerate for two hours before serving. Top with sweetened whipped cream and chocolate shavings.
*If you over-beat the mousse, set the bowl atop the simmering pan of water until chocolate is melted again and start the process over.
