No bake chocolate mousse cake. Need the perfect excuse to indulge in a chocolate treat? Rich, decadent and loaded with chocolate, this no bake cake brings in the silky smooth texture of chocolate mousse to your favorite treat. Top with chocolate glaze for the ultimate chocolatey experience.
A hearty meal is incomplete without a decadent dessert. Agree? My idea of the best dessert is the one that starts with a ‘C’ and ends with an ‘E’. Chocolate and more chocolate.
With the addition of rich decadent chocolate, this no bake chocolate mousse cake is your chocolate dreams come true. The best part? This cake is completely set in your refrigerator, no baking involved.
So, here’s the ultimate mousse cake recipe for all the chocolate lovers out there.
Start with the base layer. Very similar to the base of a no bake cheesecake, crushed biscuits combined with a little melted chocolate is pressed onto the base of a springform pan. Of course, you can use chocolate biscuits or even crushed oreos for the base. I just wanted to keep the base layer less chocolatey.
The mousse layer of this no bake chocolate mousse cake is going to be rich in decadent chocolate. Again, this layer is eggless, with just two main ingredients playing the key roles – fresh cream and chocolate.
I’ve used a combination of both dark and milk chocolates folded into whipped fresh cream. Gelatin holds the ingredients together when cooled.
The third step – making the cool chocolate glaze – is my most favorite part of this recipe. I really love the gorgeous glaze covering the top of the cake. It’s a stunner. The idea is to create a smooth lump-free chocolate mixture with a few ingredients like cocoa powder, sugar and fresh cream. Pass it through a sieve to remove all the tiny lumps and create a smooth finish.
The silkiest, smoothest no bake chocolate mousse cake decorated with white chocolate drizzle and white chocolate flower. Pure bliss!
