Chocolate Mousse Recipe

We share an easy Chocolate Mousse recipe. I am preparing a special luncheon for Saturday and I needed a special dessert that would be delicious and light but yet chocolate and yummy! I found the following recipe at, made it yesterday and shared it with a small group of friends last evening. They ate it, wanted more, and said it was delicious so I’m sharing the recipe. FYI–I doubled the following recipe and it turned out well.

Easy Chocolate Mousse
Printed from

1 envelope gelatine
1/4 cup cold water
2 tablespoons butter, softened
1 1/4 cups milk
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups frozen whipped topping, thawed

In a small saucepan, sprinkle gelatine over cold water and let stand one minute. Stir over low heat until gelatine is completely dissolved. Stir in butter until melted.

In a blender or food processor (it leaked out of my food processor so next time I will use my immersion blender) process milk, sugar, cocoa powder and vanilla until blended. While processing, gradually add gelatine mixture and process until blended. Pour into bowl, then blend in whipped topping. Turn into dessert glasses; chill until firm. Garnish as desired with additional whipped topping and chocolate curls. Makes about 8 servings.

Enjoy! We hope to see you at The Firelight Inn on Oregon Creek Duluth Bed and Breakfast on your next trip to Duluth!
