Milk Chocolate Mousse Shots are the perfect party pick me up shots, that are creamy, delicious and extremely good looking.

Mousse desserts are probably among my favorite. They are pretty, easy to make, and look stunning. I have a collection of them, starting from Easy White Chocolate Mousse to Mousse Brownies.

Milk Chocolate Mousse Shots

Milk Chocolate Mousse Shots have a creamy texture and the mild chocolate flavor from the chocolate milk. This dessert is so smooth and it’s perfect for a party. Also, I just pumped the mousse into shot glasses, topped with fresh homemade whipped cream and some unsweetened cocoa to enhance the chocolate flavor. As a result, you have the perfect little dessert. Call it sweet finger food!

With football season around the corner, this is these milk chocolate mousse shots are the perfect pick me up dessert to serve. Also, it can be made days in advance, all you have to do is top it with whipped cream before serving. In addition, if you want to go all fancy, you can add some cognac to the milk chocolate mousse shots and shave a little chocolate on top. It will be perfect for the men and ladies attending to enjoy a few shots.

And when the servings are so tiny, you know what they say, its basically calorie free. So, you can just have a few instead of a cocktail. Also, it’s a perfect idea to make it in a few flavors so people can choose from. Similarly, these are perfectly portioned, won’t get you full so you have room to try other things.

You can spice these milk chocolate mousse shots up with some booze. However, if you plan on serving them to children, just divide the batter in half, and leave one half alcohol free. These are particularly good flavored with some Godiva or Baileys liqueur. I like them with the Chocolate Cherry Baileys, it adds such a nice aroma!

Milk Chocolate Mousse Shots
Author: Catalina Castravet Serves: 6 servings
Prep time: 40 minutes Total time: 40 mins

Ingredients

  • 10 ounces  milk chocolate  (finely chopped)
  • 2½ cups  whipping cream  (chilled)
  • 7 grams  gelatin 
  • 2 tablespoons  of water 
  • 2 tablespoons  liqueur or cognac for a boozy version   (- optional)
  •  whipped cream   (- to garnish)
  •  cocoa powder   (- to garnish)

Instructions

  1. Bring a pot of water to boil, place chocolate in a heatproof bowl and melt over the pot of simmering water. When melted, remove from heat and set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, place gelatin and water, allow the gelatin to bloom, let sit for 10 minuets.
  3. In the meantime, in a sauce pan, bring ½ cup of cream to a boil.
  4. If using alcohol, place in a microwave-safe bowl, heat the liqueur until hot, about 45 seconds. Stir in the softened gelatin until dissolved. Add the gelatin mixture to the cream, stir to fully incorporate the gelatin. Remove from heat.
  5. Pour about half of the cream mixture into the chocolate and whisk quickly, add the rest of the chocolate and whisk until well combined. The mixture will be very smooth and shiny.
  6. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the wire attachment, place the remaining 2 cups of cream and whisk until soft peaks form.
  7. When the chocolate mixture has cooled to room temperature, fold in the whipped cream manually using a spatula.
  8. Fill shot glasses and small jars with the mousse. Place in the fridge overnight, or for at least 6 hours.
  9. Before serving, top with whipped cream and unseated cocoa powder.
  10. Enjoy!

Over the top creamy and suuuuper dreamy! Obviously I am going to HAVE to make these for the hubster...

These are awesome girlfriend. Pinned! Cheers to a beautiful week!

I need to make 80 mini chocolate mousse dessert shooters. About the size of a shot glass. How much of this recipe would i have to make to do that?

Reply

oh boy 80 :) this recipe makes about 8! I would recommend making a batch first, see how many you get based on the shot glasses you use and adjust after that.

How long in advance can I make these? (How long can they stay in the fridge prior to serving) Thanks!

Reply

You can make them 1-2 days in advance, but top with whipped cream the day you intend to serve them. They can stay in the refrigerator (without whipped cream) for 3-4 days.
