Unfortunately when I made this mousse it would not set and I found the brandy flavour to be too overpowering for my tastes. Read More

I too used Kahlua will try brandy next time but it's already perfect. I used 1/4 cup sugar to make it less sweet and also used 1/2 & 1/2 instead of milk. Don't know what some people are doing but mine set up perfectly! Read More

Awesome quick dessert! I used a giant dark chocolate bar I had on hand and took the sugar down to just 1/4 cup. Also I used Irish creme for the liqueur. Very tasty! Read More

Good and easy! I cut the sugar back to 1/4 c and made the batch without alcohol. I poured most of the mixture into the cups and returned a small amount of the mixture back to the blender and added Irish Baileys Creme. Yum!!! Read More

I agree not only was it sickeningly sweet it did not set up. It had a horrible taste. A waste of food. Read More

all I can say is WOW! I used Heavy whipping cream in place of the milk and added vanilla extract and Kahlua in place of the brandy. Those that are complaining about this being too rich and sweet I don't get! Chocolate Mousse is supposed to be rich and sweet! Wonderful topped with freshly whipped cream and sliced strawberries!

Very rich good taste. This recipe does not work with white chocolate probably because of the different oil content in white vs. dark chocolate. Read More
