Chocolate Mousse is one of my favorite desserts. While the internet is full of all kinds of different ways to make a mousse, I wanted one that I could whip up in a matter of minutes…no fussing with eggs or thermometers. So I did a little experimenting to see if I could find a quick and easy, but still decadent and delicious recipe. This particular recipe is one where I used Kahlua blended into the chocolate. I loved the finished product, but you could substitute any liqueur you happen to like…think Grand Marnier, Chambord, Drambuie. You could also use different chocolate. If you prefer milk chocolate, by all means use it. I happen to be a fan of dark chocolate, but in the end, I favored the outcome of the dark mixed with semisweet. I love the combination of orange and chocolate, so next time I think I’ll try using the Lindt Orange Chocolate bar mixed with dark chocolate and use Grand Marnier as the liqueur. The possibilities are limitless, so have fun!
