  • 1 teaspoon unflavored gelatin
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 cup chilled heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons Chocolate Cherry Baileys or other liqueur
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 4 ounces white chocolate melted and cooled
  • Pinch of salt


  • In a small bowl, sprinkle the gelatin over the water and let stand until softened.
  • In the bowl of an electric mixer using the wire attachment, beat the cream until softly whipped. A hand mixer will work as well. Place the whipped cream in the refrigerator for 20 minutes.
  • In a microwave-safe bowl, heat the liqueur until hot, about 45 seconds. Stir in the softened gelatin until dissolved.
  • Bring a medium saucepan half filled with water to a boil. Place white chocolate in a medium bowl set over the saucepan of simmering water, let it melt, stirring just a few times. Make sure the bowl doesn't touch the boiling water, to avoid overheating. Remove from heat and set aside.
  • In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the wire attachment, beat the egg yolks with the sugar and salt at high speed until pale and thickened, about 5 minutes. Beat in the liqueur gelatin liquid and the melted chocolate.
  • Using a rubber spatula, manually and gentle fold in the whipped cream in 2 additions. Transfer the mousse to serving bowls, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm, at least 4 hours or overnight.
  • Dust with cocoa powder right before serving.
  • The mousse can be stored in the fridge for one week.
