"This amazing dessert is made with just three ingredients and comes together in minutes. A word of warning - once you've tasted this simple chocolate mousse, you will never eat regular chocolate mousse again. I know you've been told not to mix water and chocolate, but trust me, this works."

  1. Break up chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl. Pour water over chocolate and microwave at 50% power for 2 minutes. Remove and stir until smooth. Let cool to room temperature.
  2. Place heavy cream into a mixing bowl and mix with an electric stand mixer's whisk attachment until stiff peaks form. Fold chocolate mixture into cream using a rubber spatula until mixture is uniform. Place immediately into a serving dish.
  3. Chill for at least 1 hour before serving. Mousse can be spooned or sliced.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • You can use 3 tablespoons liqueur and 2 tablespoons water instead of all water. Liqueur/chocolate pairings include dark chocolate with Grand Marnier, Framboise, and rum; milk chocolate with Kahlua® or Frangelico; white chocolate with amaretto, Kirsch, or Bailey's®.
  • If using white chocolate, cocoa butter should be the first or maybe second ingredient, and heat for 2 minutes at 30% power.
