Elegant and easy! Dazzle your dinner party guests with this incredible and impressive dessert.
Serves:6 (1/2 cup) servings (But of course that’s silly because who is going to be happy with 1/2 cup of this yummy dessert? No one I know!)
- 2 tsp. unflavored gelatin (you can find glutin free gelatin in most grocery stores)
- 2 Tbsp. cold water
- ¼ c. boiling water
- ½ c. sugar
- 2 Tbsp. cocoa powder (for a more intense chocolate flavor, add 1 additional Tbsp.)
- 1½ c. heavy cream, very cold
- ½ c. Bailey’s, very cold
- 1 tsp. vanilla
Before preparing mousse, prep bowl and beaters by placing in the freezer for 15 minutes to chill.
Sprinkle gelatin over cold water in small bowl; stir and let stand 1 minute to soften.
Add boiling water; stir until gelatin is completely dissolved.
Let stand to cool.
Stir together sugar and cocoa in small mixing bowl; add heavy cream.
Beat at medium speed until stiff peaks form.
Gradually pour in Bailey’s, vanilla, and gelatin mixture, beating continuously at high speed until well-blended and soft peaks form.
Spoon into serving dishes and place in refrigerator to chill. If you’re in a hurry (totally can relate), chill bowls before filling.
Chill 1 hour or until ready to serve.
Serve with whipped cream and a fresh raspberry for a picture perfect dessert!
