Chocolate Orange Mousse

When it comes to baking, my favourite thing to make is dessert and one of my absolute favourite desserts is chocolate mousse. When I discovered this recipe in a brochure from one of my local supermarkets, I was beyond excited to try it and rushed out the next day to buy the ingredients. This recipe makes quite a large amount of mousse and would create the perfect serving size for 4-5 people. When I made this dessert, the end result wasn’t quite the colour or taste that I was expecting from the recipe but it was delicious none the less.


You Will Need:

  • 1/4 cup Dark Chocolate
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup boiling water
  • 125g cream cheese, softened
  • 2 teaspoons gelatine
  • 300ml cream, whipped

What To Do:

  1. Combine the dark chocolate, boiling water, brown sugar and cream cheese in a large bowl.
  2.  Mix with an electric beater until smooth and creamy.
  3. Sprinkle the gelatine over the orange juice and leave to swell for 5 minutes.
  4. Once swelled, gently heat to melt the gelatine.
  5.  Beat the gelatine into the cream cheese mixture and fold in the whipped cream.
  6. Spoon into serving glasses and place in the refrigerator to set for at least an hour.

I hope you enjoy this recipe and would love to know if you try it out 🙂
