Easy Dessert - Chocolate Mousse Shots

Who doesn't like chocolates! And when served up in style, even more. This recipe I am sharing today is the result of an experiment. I had baked a chocolate cake the other day and wanted to ice it with a chocolate ganache. But somehow it was not my day and the cake turned out quite pathetic. By then I had already prepared the ganache and didn't want it to go waste. Looked up the net and found a really easy recipe for Chocolate Mousse. So here's presenting my version of Eggless Chocolate Mousse Shots. Its light , airy and absolutely delicious.


Dark Chocolate - 100 gms ( grated)

Butter - 1 tbsp

Fresh cream - 100 gms

Whipping cream - 1 cup

Chocolate strands  - for garnish

Shot glasses - for serving


In a microwave safe bowl add the grated chocolate and the butter and micro for half a minute to melt the chocolate.

 Add the fresh cream and mix it well into a smooth sauce and keep it aside.

Beat the whipping cream till soft peaks form. Add the chocolate ganache mix into the whipped cream. Gently mix it together.

Fill a piping bag with this mixture and keep it in the fridge for 15 mins.
Take it out and fill your shot glasses with the mix. Garnish with chocolate strands or use grated chocolate on top. Or even some whipped cream.
Chiill again for 1 hour  and serve.

Note : If you like the mousse to be sweeter , you could add some powdered sugar to the whipped cream. But this version turned out just perfect.
