Baileys Chocolate Mousse

After a crazy but amazing Christmas, my boyfriend and I decided that a nice romantic evening was just what was needed on New Years Eve, the German firework obsession put this to the test however, but he was cooking dinner so I decided to make something yummy for dessert!  A joint decision resulted in a chocolate mousse, but not any chocolate mousse, a Baileys Chocolate Mousse! Baileys is such a delicious and wintertime drink that it seemed the perfect accompaniment for New Years Eve. This recipe can have a tablespoon of your favourite liquor and this is how you make it;

 

Ingredients

  • 2 Eggs – Separated
  • 25g of Butter
  • 2tbsp of Caster Sugar
  • 1tbsp of Baileys
  • 75g of Milk Chocolate

Method

  1. Whisk the eggs whites until stiff then add the sugar and whisk making sure the mixture stays stiff
  2. Set to one side and melt the chocolate and butter in a bowl
  3. Once melted add the egg yolks and baileys and stir
  4. Then fold the two mixtures together lightly keeping the air in the egg whites
  5. Pour into 4 dishes and refrigerate for at least 5 hours

Serving Suggestions

Serve with a Shortbread Biscuit for dipping. This time I did not use home-made shortbread biscuits (click on the link for my recipe) as we had some Christmas biscuits that were just too yummy!

This recipe gave me a chance to use my new hand whisk and my new set of ramekins which I was lucky to get this Christmas to aid my baking ways! In honesty this Baileys Chocolate Mousse was not as ‘moussey’ as I had hoped but it really did taste that good that I cannot complain! In fact I have already made it again since!
