This easy chocolate dessert recipe for chocolate mousse is a family favorite.
Only four ingredients (five if you count the optional whipped cream) and simple to make. Decadent chocolate goodness, combined with a hint of kahlua, provides a quick and dreamy dessert. Serve in small wine glasses for a fancy looking way to end your meal! Serves four, but you can easily double the recipe for eight servings!
This delicious recipe is my go-to when I need something easy, but want a dessert that looks and tastes fancy.
6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
3 tbsp kahlua (you can use chocolate liqueur if you don’t have kahlua)
3/4 cup milk, scalded
OPTIONAL: whipped cream (slightly sweetened)
Set aside 1 tbsp chocolate chips for garnish.
Combine the remaining chocolate chips, eggs and kahlua (or chocolate liqueur) in a medium size bowl.
Blend 20 seconds just to break up eggs and chocolate chips.
Pour the scalded milk* into the mixture and blend for a full two minutes.
Pour the blended mixture into 4 small bowls or glasses and refrigerate until firm (I usually make the night before to simplify preparation the day of the meal, but an hour or so in the refrigerator is generally enough time to set.)
Top with whipped cream if desired and garnish with chocolate chips.
Serve and enjoy.
I generally make this recipe in a free standing blender, but a bowl and hand blender works well too.
Sometimes I top each with a few raspberries or strawberries for a little extra color.
For an extra special presentation, add a Trader Joe’s Petite Chocolate Baton to the chocolate mousse!

Though the alcoholic content per serving is minimal, this recipe is recommended for adults only.
