Offering two great tastes and textures that taste great together, this dessert showcases rich, creamy bittersweet chocolate mousse made with heavy cream. After chilling the mousse in the refrigerator for a few hours, it's topped with cubes of the mint gelatin that are infused with lemon. Take this interesting, decadent dessert to the next level by whipping sweetened cream and finishing the bowls with chocolate shavings. It's best to assemble these right before serving.

  • 1/2 cup mint syrup
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • lemon juice
  • 2 gelatin (sheets)

Directions

  1. Melt the chocolate with the butter in a small saucepan over low heat stirring constantly until smooth in consistency.
  2. Let the melted chocolate cool completely.
  3. Whip the heavy cream and carefully fold it into the chocolate mixture.
  4. Add the chocolate shavings and refrigerate the mixture for a few hours.
  5. Serve the mousse in individual dessert bowls with the mint gelatin squares.
  6. Bring the mint syrup to a boil with the water, sugar, a few drops of lemon juice, and the gelatin sheets.
  7. Pour the mixture into a baking dish, allow it to cool completely and cut it into small squares.

Absolutely the most delectable chocolate mousse recipe I have ever ended up making! This 5 star chocolate mousse had that sweetly bitter dark chocolate taste that was accented well by the delicious mint gelatin. The mousse was light and airy just the way I like it. I have already prepped my kitchen to make this mousse tonight.
