Chocolate Mousse with Cocoa Powder


No cooking involved, and it just doesn't get much easier than this for an elegant dessert. I like to pipe the mousse into small shooter glasses for a lovely presentation. Everybody has room for a mini dessert! Chilling the bowl and beaters will result in a better whipped cream.

6 servings


  • 1 ⅓ cups heavy cream

  • ½ cup powdered sugar

  • cup unsweetened cocoa powder

  • cup Philadelphia Whipped Cream Cheese KFT

  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar

  • ½ teaspoon almond extract

  • 1 tablespoon grated chocolate


  1. Combine cream, 1/2 cup powdered sugar, and cocoa powder in a large chilled bowl. Beat with an electric mixer with chilled beaters until stiff peaks form; set aside.

  2. Beat whipped cream cheese in a separate bowl until soft. Add 2 tablespoons powdered sugar gradually and beat until well combined. Mix in almond extract and beat until well incorporated. Fold the cream cheese mixture into the chocolate whipped cream until both are completely blended.

  3. Spoon or pipe mousse into small serving dishes. Top with grated chocolate.

Cook's Notes:

If you use shooter glasses, you'll get about 8 to 10 servings, depending on the size of the glass.

This mousse holds its texture well in the fridge, so feel free to make it several days prior to when you plan to serve it.
