This is a very easy recipe for a great tasting dessert.
The other day I was surprising my friend with a Halloween Birthday Cake….the cake was filled with ORANGE and CHOCOLATE Mousse filling…
Since I made little bit too much Orange mousse as well as chocolate MOUSSE I decide to turn it into a little Sunday Dinner dessert for my family.
As always….I found in my pantry box of ready-to-serve Belgium CHOCOLATE cups and the rest was just to scoop up some mousse and make it look pretty….
The result…..You can easily serve this at your next dinner party….. It looks impressive and tastes divine.
- 3/4 cup Orange Juice
- Orange Rind from 1 large Orange
- 1/3 cup Sugar
- 1 Tbsp Clear Gelatin (1 package)
- 2 Tsp Triple Sec or Grand Marnier
- 1,5 cup Heavy Whipping Cream
STEP 1: In a pot bring to boil orange juice, orange rind and sugar. Remove from heat.
STEP 2: Dissolve gelatin according to it’s package and add it to the orange mixture.
STEP 3: Add the Triple Sec and stir well. Cool it down till it’s starts to thicken.
STEP 4: In a large bowl whip the whipped cream until firm.
STEP 5: Fold in little bit of the whipped cream into the cold orange mixture till well combined. Gently fold in the rest of the whipped cream, cover and chill in the fridge.
- 6 oz Semi-sweet Chocolate (I use Belgium)
- 2 cups Heavy Whipped Cream
STEP 1: In a large bowl melt chocolate in a double boiler over a hot (not boiling) water until smooth. Cool it a bit.
STEP 2: In another bowl whip the whipped cream until firm.
STEP 3: Add little bit of the whipped cream into the cooled chocolate and mix well till combined. Gently fold in rest of the whipped cream. Cover and chill in the fridge.
When you’re ready to serve your Orange and Chocolate Mousse just scoop little scoops into the chocolate cups and decorate with fresh fruit.
You can also serve it in a nice Martini glasses with a some fresh strawberries and fresh mint.
