The easiest dessert recipe.



I was grocery shopping the other day and came across Tropolite’s dairy-free whipping cream. I have always used Amul’s heavy cream to make whipped cream. While it tastes delicious, no matter how much I whipped it, it would never form stiff peaks and give me the desired result. So, when I got my hands on Tropolite whipping cream at Arif in Crawford Market, I was curious to experiment with it. While fresh fruits with whipped cream is the easiest and quickest recipe to make with this ingredient, I wanted to put together something more interesting and also something I hadn’t made earlier.

So, I decided to go with chocolate mousse. And weekend pe spiking your dessert toh banta hai! My absolute favourite, Baileys played a perfect role in helping me do just that.

Here’s what went into making this super delicious and easy dessert.

Serves – 6 generous portions l Preparation time – 20 mins



Whipping cream – 500 ml

Milk chocolate – 200 gms

Cocoa powder – 1 tbsp

Baileys – 100 ml




  1. In a double boiler, melt the chocolate


  1. Once it melts, add cocoa powder and baileys to it and set aside to cool.


  1. In a wide pan, add the whipping cream and beat until it forms stiff peaks


  1. Now, add the chocolate mixture to the whipping cream
  2. Fold gently until all the chocolate gets incorporated with the cream
  3. Add this mixture to a piping bag and squeeze into a bowl or a martini glass


  1. Garnish with chocolate shavings and refrigerate


  1. Serve chilled


  1. It is extremely important to gently incorporate the chocolate into the cream using cut and fold method to enjoy a light yet firm mousse
  2. You can add chocolate chips and chocolate sauce along with fresh raspberries to garnish
  3. This recipe can also make for a brilliant icing on any chocolate cake
  4. If you don’t have Baileys, you can spike the dessert with rum or scotch too.
  5. If you’re not a big fan of adding liquor to your dessert, feel free to completely skip this ingredient.
