Chocolate mousse is a much-loved pud, because it’s light, creamy and packs a powerful chocolate punch. This version adds Baileys and chocolate shavings to add an indulgent touch. This taste sensation takes just 10 minutes to make – though it does need at least three hours in the fridge to chill.
Share recipe


  • 150g dark chocolate, chopped, plus extra 50g shavings to serve
  • 2 medium eggs, separated
  • 1 tsp unsalted butter
  • 250ml double cream
  • 200ml Baileys Original Irish Cream


Step 1

Put the chocolate in a heatproof bowl and set over a pan of simmering water to melt, ensuring the base of the bowl doesn’t touch the water. Remove from the heat, allow the chocolate to cool for 5 mins then beat in the egg yolks and butter.

Step 2

Lightly whip the cream and Baileys until soft peaks are formed, then fold half into the chocolate mix.

Step 3

Whisk the egg whites until just stiff, then carefully fold into the chocolate mixture.

Step 4

Spoon half the chocolate mousse into four medium serving glasses, followed by half the chocolate shavings and then half the whipped Baileys and cream.

Step 5

Repeat the layers and top with the remaining chocolate shavings.

Step 6

Place in the fridge covered for 3 hours or overnight. No picking! (well, maybe just a bit…) Serve with a flourish to the sound of oohs and ahs.
