Chocolate Mousse For Two - rich and silky treat for two!

Chocolate Mousse For Two Recipe - Crunchy Creamy Sweet (1)

I have been meaning to make this mousse since this cake. I knew it would be amazing. Here we are, a year later, Valentine's Day approaching. It was time to make it happen.

If you need a dessert that can be made ahead of time and is fairly quick to make, this is it. Aside from the fact that it's one of the most decadent ones! My Hubby loves chocolate mousse and he was awaiting anxiously for me to finish shooting the photos so he can have his share! 🙂

As for decorating it, I used chocolate shavings. You can use whipped cream or caramel sauce or hot fudge sauce. Whatever your sweet heart desires! Or you can use this mousse for dipping strawberries!

This recipe makes a perfect amount for two. This mousse is rich so don't be tempted to double the recipe (unless you are making it for 4).

Calories 621 kcal

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2.5 tablespoon hot water
  • 3.5 oz semi-sweet chocolate
  • ¾ c cold heavy whipping cream
  • 2.5 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • dash of salt

Instructions

  • In a small bowl, mix together cocoa powder and hot water. Set aside to cool slightly.

  • In a double boiler, melt chocolate. Cool 3 to 5 minutes.

  • In a large mixing bowl of a stand mixer, whip cream, sugar and salt at medium speed. Whip for 30 seconds. It should slightly thicken. Increase the speed to high and whip the cream until soft peaks form. It should happen quite fast ( 20 to 30 seconds ) so do not walk away. Set aside.

  • Whisk cocoa powder mixture with melted chocolate until smooth. At first it will look like your chocolate seized but keep whisking. It will come back together and be smooth.

  • With whisk, fold in ⅓ of the whipped cream into chocolate mixture to lighten it. Switch to a rubber spatula and gently fold in the rest of the whipped cream, until no streaks remain. It is important or the mousse won't set right.

  • Spoon the mousse into glasses.

  • Refrigerate until ready to serve or for up to two days.

    It says “put in the fridge until ready” do you have an estimate on how long that will take? Thanks in advance!

      Hi Sam! It is best to let it set for 2 to 4 hours. Pull it out of the fridge 30 minutes before serving. Hope this helps!

      Chocolate Mousse For Two Recipe - Crunchy Creamy Sweet (11)
      Baking chocolate is unsweetened chocolate. This recipe uses 3.5 ounces of semi-sweet chocolate (not the same as unsweetened), as well as 1 tablespoon of unsweetened powdered cocoa. Most chocolate chips are semi-sweet chocolate, but a better quality of chocolate will make your mousse better-quality, too.

    Anna, I've been a terrible blogger friend and haven't visited your lovely blog in so long! I've missed so many delicious things. Girl, this mousse. It's heavenly! And your photos are gorgeous - I'm especially loving the overhead shots. I also love how this only serves two. I mean, I would totally eat an entire vat of mousse by myself but I really shouldn't. A two person serving is perfect!
