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

  1. Serve chilled

Notes:

  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.
