Easy Chocolate Mousse (3 Ingredients) Recipe


A quick and easy dark chocolate mousse recipe that’s only 3 ingredients and is fluffy and as light as air. All ingredients are from Aldi!



  • 500ml double cream
  • 300g dark chocolate, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • 1 tablespoon of your favourite liqueur (Amaretto, Tia Maria, etc)
  • pinch sea salt


  1. Place the chopped chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl and melt in the microwave in 10-15 second bursts, stirring frequently until all the chocolate is melted and smooth.
  2. Heat the double cream and vanilla until just starting to steam. Slowly pour the cream into the chocolate stirring to create a smooth creamy mixture. Gently stir in the sea salt. Place the mixture in the fridge to set for several hours or overnight.
  3. Once the mixture is well chilled, use an electric hand whisk to whip into a light and fluffy mousse.
  4. Divide into small serving glasses and top with some extra whipped cream and shaved chocolate, or leave in the fridge for unto 2 days until ready to serve.


  1. When whipping the cream and chocolate, be very careful to not over whip and split the mixture.
  2. The sea salt is optional but highly recommended. It gives more depth of flavour to the chocolate and helps to balance the sweetness.
