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
- In a double boiler, melt the chocolate
- Once it melts, add cocoa powder and baileys to it and set aside to cool.
- In a wide pan, add the whipping cream and beat until it forms stiff peaks
- Now, add the chocolate mixture to the whipping cream
- Fold gently until all the chocolate gets incorporated with the cream
- Add this mixture to a piping bag and squeeze into a bowl or a martini glass
- Garnish with chocolate shavings and refrigerate
- Serve chilled
- It is extremely important to gently incorporate the chocolate into the cream using cut and fold method to enjoy a light yet firm mousse
- You can add chocolate chips and chocolate sauce along with fresh raspberries to garnish
- This recipe can also make for a brilliant icing on any chocolate cake
- If you don’t have Baileys, you can spike the dessert with rum or scotch too.
- If you’re not a big fan of adding liquor to your dessert, feel free to completely skip this ingredient.
