When you get a super quick recipe with minimal ingredients for a dessert, it brings a big smile on your face. Chocolate mousse is a great dessert where you can experiment with your creativity skills. Going the simple way or making it with layers, it’s incredibly decadent!
When time is less and I am out of complicated ingredients that different desserts demand, I often resort to different variations of this simple chocolate mousse recipe. The silky and fluffy texture along with the appealing look, makes it a winner for divine indulgence. This chocolate mousse was a sweet treat to all my friends and family who I met this Diwali and they enjoyed it a lot.
I was scared of trying my hands in making a mousse since it requires a prefect combination of ingredient and preparation technique. However I decided to be a little brave and gave it a try. I failed miserably a couple of times since I had to make eggless mousse but with constant hit and trail I came up with this easy and perfect eggless chocolate mousse recipe. Getting the airy texture was difficult but with this recipe I feel you can experience some serious food coma!
So don’t get intimidated, just gather a few ingredients and let’s start cooking.
- 1 packet Vanilla Oreo Biscuit
- 1 cup White chocolate
- 1 cup Dark chocolate
- 1 1/2 cup fresh cream
- 1/2 cup whole milk
- 3 tbsp powdered sugar
- 3 tbsp melted butter
- Chocolate shavings, for garnishing (optional)
- Whipped cream, for garnishing (optional)
- Fresh berries, for garnishing (optional)
- Mint leaves, for garnishing (optional)
- Remove the cream from the oreo biscuit. Take the biscuit and crush it in the food processor along with the melted butter.
- Take this mixture and heat it in the microwave for 2 – 3 minutes. Pour the mixture into the glasses in which you will finally serve.
- Take fresh cream in a bowl and heat it on the medium flame. Add powdered sugar and stir until incorporated well. Make sure to constantly stir the cream.
- Divide the heated cream into two bowls equally. In one bowl add the dark chocolate and mix it well. In the other bowl add the white chocolate and mix well.
- Add milk in both the bowls and mix until the chocolate is fully incorporated in the cream.
- Pour the dark chocolate mix over the Oreo layer and allow it to partially set for 15 – 20 minutes in the freezer.
- Next put the white chocolate layer and allow it to set on the freezer for 1 hour.
- Take the mousse out and garnish it with chocolate shavings or whipped cream or berries, whatever you please.
- Put it the the refrigerator and serve it cool.
- You can omit the Oreo base and instead use Hide and Seek biscuit. You can even choose to omit any biscuit base.
- You can add a third layer of milk chocolate to give it a great look.
- You can add 1/2 tbsp instant coffee powder in the dark chocolate layer to add more flavor. (Coffee and chocolate can never go wrong together.)
- To keep it simple, make a chocolate mousse using either dark chocolate or using milk chocolate. Don’t forget to adjust the quantities of the different ingredients.
