Still looking for a perfect Christmas day dessert? Try my Cheats Chocolate & Baileys Mousse – quick, easy and it tastes amazing!
Cheats Chocolate & Baileys Mousse is one of my favorite quick and easy recipes. It tastes amazing and is super simple to make – no cooking required. It also doesn’t contain any raw eggs so is suitable for the whole family. I like to serve it in champagne flutes to make it look extra special but it can be served however you like – in individual ramekins or in a large glass bowl.
The recipe is pretty adaptable too – you could change the Baileys for Tia Maria and add a few drops of coffee essence for a Tia Maria & Coffee Mousse. Or use one of the many flavored Baileys that are now available, such as orange or mint.
This recipe can be made several days in advance as the mousses keep well in the fridge for 4-5 days.
You will need
- 3 Packets of Chocolate Angel Delight
- 300ml of double cream
- 300ml of milk
- 200ml of Baileys
- Electric Whisk
- Glasses for Serving
Makes 7 or 8 depedning on the size of your glasses/portions. This recipe easily doubles up if more portions are required. If you prefer a more subtle Baileys flavour, change 100ml of the Baileys for an extra 100ml of milk.
- Add all ingredients to a large mixing bowl or jug
- Begin mixing slowly to avoid an explosion of chocolate powder
- Mix on high for 3-4 minutes until the mixture has increased in volume but is still liquid enough to pour
- Pour (or pipe if the mixture is thicker) into glasses or bowls
- Chill for minimum 2-3 hours before serving or overnight for best results.
I usually serve topped with whipped cream, chocolate shavings and a wafer curl but the possibilities are endless, top it with whatever you like and will enjoy.
(These instructions use slightly less liquid than the recipe on the angel delight packet will state. This is because alcohol can prevent the mixture from setting, so it’s best to use a little bit less liquid to get a firm set)
There you have it, my Cheats Chocolate & Baileys Mousse, quick, easy and perfect for Christmas.
