Dinner-Party Worthy: Bailey’s Chocolate Mousse 

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!
