Decadent but Easy Chocolate Mousse Recipe

Easy chocolate mousse recipe with raspberry sauce

Chocolate Mousse is among one of my favorite desserts, but it always feels so daunting to make. Double broiler {or even fancier bain marie}, candy thermometers, and sieves, oh my! You won’t find any of that here. Just delicious, decadent chocolate mousse, without a lot of effort.

I love and appreciate the process, but when you can get an incredibly creamy result with half the effort and tools, why not? So, I dumbed it down, as my mom would say, and the result is nothing short of spectacular. You’d never know the difference.

This chocolate mousse recipe is light, fluffy and not too sweet. I personally prefer to use semisweet chocolate, but you can use milk chocolate or bittersweet if you’d like. 


This easy raspberry sauce dresses up any dessert - even store bought. Drizzle it on cheesecake, ice cream, mousse or in cocktails. It's quick, easy and of course, delicious.

Wednesday, we were anticipating dinner guests, so I made this chocolate mousse on a whim. Unfortunately, they had to cancel due to a sick child and Chris was left with a refrigerator full of temptation. To be discreet, I won’t tell you how many he ate, but I will to you there are 5 left. Can you relate? 

To top it off, might I recommend my raspberry sauce and mascarpone cream? Why not, it’s the holidays! You only live once.
