  • 10 ounces milk chocolate finely chopped
  • 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


  • 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.
  • In a small bowl, place gelatin and water, allow the gelatin to bloom, let sit for 10 minuets.
  • In the meantime, in a sauce pan, bring ½ cup of cream to a boil.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • When the chocolate mixture has cooled to room temperature, fold in the whipped cream manually using a spatula.
  • Fill shot glasses and small jars with the mousse. Place in the fridge overnight, or for at least 6 hours.
  • Before serving, top with whipped cream and unseated cocoa powder.
  • Enjoy!
