Indulge in your love of chocolate with this simple yet decadent dessert

Everyone loves chocolate, and what better way to indulge your sweet tooth than this decadent Chocolate Mousse? The best part is that you only need two ingredients; chocolate and a liquid to mix it with — coffee, wine, even water, whatever’s on hand and whatever you’re craving. This simple dish makes for a delectable dessert, or an afternoon snack if you can’t wait until then.


  • 1 cup of semi sweet chocolate, chopped
  • ⅓ cup of water, red wine or coffee


Heat your choice of liquid for a few minutes on the stovetop or in the microwave until simmering. Liquid must be very hot!

Place chocolate in a large mixing bowl and pour hot liquid over top, stir slightly to speed up the melting process. 

Place chocolate bowl over top of a smaller bowl half filled with with ice and water. The ice water should be high enough to touch the base of the chocolate bowl. This will speed up the thickening process.

Then using an electric mixer, beat for 1 minute or until it is the texture of a thick icing. Scoop into bowls to serve. Garnish any way you like!
