So make this mousse in the early afternoon and you will have a lush dessert right after dinner. But plan ahead!”
Thank you Rachel!
11) Avocado Chocolate Mousse (Well Plated By Erin)
I have seen quite a few recipes with avocados that first made me stop dead in my tracks. But when I tried them, it was amazing! Now I regularly add avocado to soups to make it creamier instead of adding cream or butter. And I guess that is also what avocado does to chocolate mousse. This avocado chocolate mousse looks so perfectly rich and creamy, only that look comes from the avocado in it! Credits go to Erin from Well Plated.
And she says: “Chocolate mousse is the ideal dessert. It is romantic and makes you feel special. If only this easy raw avocado chocolate mousse had been in my life back then!”

A pretty classic chocolate mousse… but what I loved about it is the presentation! I have never done that before, dipping balloons in melted chocolate. But every time I see them, I have to admit that it looks stunning. Plus fun to make, especially with kids or grandkids! You can find this recipe over at Weekend At The Cottage. I always keep an eye on Nik Manojlovich’s recipes on Twitter.
And he says: “These chocolate mousse cups are so simple to make at home. And they are packed with layers of chocolate flavors! Make them once and you will find yourself making them for years from now on.”
Thank you so much Nik!
13) Strawberry Marshmallow Mousse (Pretty. Simple. Sweet.)
Alright, here is the catch.
Technically speaking, this next one is not really a chocolate mousse… However I thought I should include it in this chocolate mousse recipes roundup just because it really looks so good. And another thing: I had no idea that you could make a mousse with marshmallows!
Besides, my little niece is not a chocolate fan but she does like sweet desserts and anything with strawberries in or on it. Perhaps I should give this one a try next time she comes over. So as far as I am concerned, this strawberry marshmallow mousse from Shiran over at Pretty. Simple. Sweet. is one to pin for later.
Thank you so much Kelly for this inspirational idea!
