Quick and Easy Chocolate Mousse Recipe

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 5 minutes
Cooling Time 15 minutes
Course Dessert
Servings 4 people


  • 1 ½ cups heavy (whipping) cream
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 tbsp powdered sugar
  • pinch of salt


  • ¼ tsp vanilla or almond extract


  • Start with melting the chocolate chips. In a large microwave safe bowl, combine 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips with ½ cup of heavy whipping cream. Using the microwave in in 25-second intervals, allow the chocolate chips melt while gently stirring the mixture each time until smooth. Let mixture sit to cool.
  • Using either a hand mixer or stand mixer, whip the heavy cream in a separate bowl until frothed or peaks start to form. Then add sugar, a pinch of salt, and optional vanilla or almond extract, and continue whipping until stiff peaks form.
    Pro-tip: a chilled mixing bowl helps the heavy cream whip easier.
  • Combine melted chocolate and cream mixtures by slowly and gently adding the melted chocolate in increments into the whipped cream to ensure it’s well mixed. By carefully folding in the melted chocolate to the whipped cream will reduce the whipped cream from deflating, helping maintain a light and airy mousse consistency.
  • It’s time to chill! Either keep the mousse in the mixing bowl or transfer to individual serving dishes and refrigerate for about 15-minutes. Option to refrigerate for upwards of 2-hours to allow the mixtures flavors and texture to develop.
  • Once chilled, you can customize your chocolate mousse any number of ways! Top with berries, whipped cream or chocolate chips! Garnish with mint leaves and enjoy!
