Baileys Choco Mousse
This Baileys alcoholic chocolate cream mousse takes delicious grown-up dessert to another level. Not for children. For you.
- Refrigerate for 3 hours or overnight.
- 200ml Baileys Original
- 2 medium eggs, separated
- 150g dark chocolate, chopped
- 1tsp unsalted butter
- 250ml double cream
- Chocolate shavings to garnish
Melt the chocolate, allow to cool slightly then beat in the egg yolks and butter.
Lightly whip the cream and Baileys. Then fold half into the chocolate mix.
Whisk the egg whites until just stiff, now fold with the chocolate mixture. Add pieces of chocolate until it melts.
Spoon half the chocolate mousse into four glasses, followed by some chocolate shavings and then half the cream.
Repeat the layers and top with the remaining chocolate shavings.
Put it in the fridge for three hours. No picking! (well, maybe just a bit…) Serve with a flourish – to some impressed oohs and ahs.
