Chocolate Mouse doesn’t have to be a hardship to make and create loads of bowls and dishes to clean up. This very simple, easy-peazy recipe will thrill all chocolate lovers, friends and family alike. It is versatile too. You can pick up all manor of flavoured chocolate bars at the supermarket and get really creative. My favourite Chocolate Mousse is using orange flavoured chocolate and adding a glug of Grand Marnier. Or adding a teaspoon of instant coffee and a good slug of Baileys Irish cream. Mint works well too. Which ever route you choose the recipe works well. Great desserts don’t have to be time consuming and take hours to make.
