Baileys Chocolate Mousse

This dessert is beyond delicious.  It is easy to make.  I was able to make it after work and serve it for dinner that night.  It looks so decadent served in individual dishes with a topping of whipped cream and a hazelnut or two.
This recipe came from the website Lemon Tree Dwelling.

  • 2 tsp. unflavored gelatin
  • 2 Tbsp. cold water
  • ¼ c. boiling water
  • ½ c. sugar
  • 3 T. cocoa
  • 1½ c. heavy cream, very cold
  • ½ c. Bailey's, very cold
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • whipped cream
  • 8 hazelnuts
  1. Before preparing mousse, prep bowl and beaters by placing in the freezer for 15 minutes to chill.
  1. Sprinkle gelatin over cold water in small bowl; stir and let stand 1 minute to soften.
  2. Add boiling water; stir until gelatin is completely dissolved. Let stand to cool.
  3. Stir together sugar and cocoa in small mixing bowl;   add to the prep bowl that has been in the freezer.  Slowly add heavy cream.
  4. Beat at medium speed until stiff peaks form; gradually pour in Bailey's, vanilla, and gelatin mixture, beating continuously at high speed until well-blended and soft peaks form.
