Smooth Chocolate Mousse Dessert Recipe

To all the Chocolate lovers out there in the world, do I have a dessert for you this Smooth Chocolate Mousse Dessert Recipe.  So, last week  I was watching one of my favorite Greek Chefs Vagelis Driskas prepare this simple recipe on his cooking show http://kathemerachef.gr  which I just had to try.

This Smooth Chocolate Mousse Dessert Recipe only needs two ingredients.  Actually, two ingredients let’s just say is not accurate.  I posted this Chocolate Mousse on IG, and my good friend Caz from http://invisiblyme.com  (if you haven’t checked out Caz’s blog yet please pop over and check it out) was right about the ingredients. There is one more little catch I should mention, the third ingredient is patience.  This delicious dessert needs to rest overnight in the fridge.  “Sooooo Sorrryyyy”

The Chef left his Chocolate Mousse in the fridge for a few hours before serving.  Whereas, I left my Chocolate Mousse to rest overnight.  I have made many similar recipes in the past and I found that if you leave it overnight the following day the texture is much smoother.  Of course, you can just leave it in the fridge for a few hours if you don’t have the patience to wait, this is entirely up to you.

Hubby had no idea that I was preparing a Chocolate Mousse Dessert so I was able to hide the bowl in the back of the fridge…hehehehe    You can imagine the surprise on his face when he saw this!!!   I also added Grand Marnier into the Chocolate Mousse, just to give it a bit more of a boost.

Be strong withstand attacking the bowl for 24 hrs.

Have a great day everyone!!

  1. Hahahah damn, I'm all out of patience 😉 The Grand Marnier is a sneaky little addition. Do you taste it much in the chocolate? Good tip on leaving it overnight too. Maybe my poor memory will come in handy because I'll forget I made it and I'll have a nice surprise in the morning 😂 I loooooove choccy mousse but I've never made it before.
