Triple Chocolate Mousse Recipe

10.10.14 by Jackie

This whimsical chocolate dessert marks the onset of the holiday season. The sweet treat consists of espresso dark chocolate, orange and salted caramel milk chocolate layers. If you omit the garnish, you'll notice that the dessert is egg-free and gluten-free. 

Having an almost 3-year old at home is a constant reminder that I need to get prepared to celebrate Halloween. We've gone through so many costume ideas already, I wonder which one Aria will finally agree on when the times comes! For this dessert, I prepared three different flavors of chocolate mousse. The mousse required very few ingredients: milk, whipping cream, butter, sugar and of course chocolate (the star of this sweet treat!).

Cardamom Chocolate Mousse topped with Meringue Cookies Recipe

This elegant chocolate dessert might seem complicated but it really wasn't. First I prepared a cardamom-flavored chocolate mousse. The mousse required very few ingredients: milk, whipping cream, butter, sugar and of course cardamom and chocolate (the stars of this sweet treat!). You'll notice no eggs were used in this step. 

The second step is the meringue cookie topping. You can prepare the meringues way in advance and assemble the dessert at the last minute. The meringues provided a nice contrast of texture against the velvety chocolate mousse, as well a striking contrast of color.

Chocolate Raspberry Mousse Recipe Recipe

I love the combination of chocolate and raspberries. I've paired them in multiple desserts such as trifles, tiramisu and custards. But raspberry chocolate mousse was missing from the list of desserts I've shared so far.

The last time, I made an eggless mousse, but this time, I decided to add eggs. To ensure an airy, fluffy consistency, the eggs should be beaten for a very long time, then gently folded in melted chocolate and whipped cream. I flavored the mousse with raspberry extract and repeated the same flavor by adding chopped fresh  raspberries to the whipped cream.

The dessert can be prepared two days in advance, which is ideal when we host dinner parties. Raspberry chocolate mousse never fails to satisfy the sweet tooth of my guests. No chocolate addict can resist!
