Chocolate Mousse with Raspberries

Best yet, it comes in all your favorite chocolate combinations. There’s white chocolate, peanut butter chocolate, and even chocolate mint. 

But it’s not all about chocolate because there are even some with pumpkin or lush clementine champagne flavors. 

No matter which one you pick, all these mousse desserts are sure to delight. 

1. Easy Fresh Strawberry Mousse

As soon as spring hits, I bust out all my favorite strawberry recipes. I particularly like this one on a lazy Sunday afternoon.

With three ingredients, you can have this mousse ready in a jiff. It’s brimming with fresh strawberries and cream which are the best match if you ask me.

2. 3-Ingredient Chocolate Mousse

Chocolate ice cream and chocolate pudding may get all the glory, but this is what I turn to for a quick chocolate fix.

All you need is heavy whipping cream, cocoa powder, and powdered sugar. Bonus points for opting for the almond extract for a delightfully nutty kick.

3. Clementine Mousse With Champagne

How lavish will a champagne glass full of this mousse be at your next party!

This mousse is infused with clementines and champagne, making it oh-so-fancy. 

The garnish of clementine zest on top adds a burst of color and punch of citrus. 

4. S’mores Chocolate Mousse

For the times my family can’t go camping, I whip up a batch of these instead. 

S’mores mousse is a delightful combination of chocolate mousse, marshmallow cream, and graham cracker crumbs.

If you happen to have a kitchen torch on hand, you can use it to brown the top just before serving. Or you could experiment with a dash of liquid smoke. 

White Chocolate Mousse

5. White Chocolate Mousse

I always find an excuse to make my favorite white chocolate mousse. These velvety cups are full of chocolatey goodness. 

I like to sprinkle some dark chocolate curls on top too. The subtle bitterness is an excellent contrast to the sweet richness of the white chocolate. 

6. Pumpkin Mousse

If pumpkin is your favorite fall flavor, then I’ve got just the treat for you!

This smooth mousse tastes just like pumpkin cheesecake without the heavy feeling. 

Pack a glass with light pumpkin mousse, then add a dollop of whipped cream. For the toppings, add a sprinkle of cinnamon and chocolate chips.

I think tossing some pumpkin spice into this mousse will also be a great addition. 

7. Lemon Mousse

Lemon mousse is the epitome of refreshing desserts. It’s sweet, citrusy, and incredibly creamy.

For a super tangy mousse, use lemon curds. You can even garnish with a lemon wedge if you like.

A handful of fresh berries would also make a spectacular spring pairing. 

8. Raspberry Mousse Red Velvet Cake

Red velvet cake may be a classic Valentine’s Day treat, but you won’t need to wait to make this dessert. 

This recipe combines fluffy raspberry mousse with boxed red velvet cake mix for a sinfully irresistible dessert. 

Like red velvet cake, you’ll have to put in some work. So if you’re making these for guests, you may want to prep them ahead of time.

9. No-Bake Cheesecake Mousse

No-bake cheesecake, say hello to mousse. This is a splendid recipe to get your cheesecake fix in with minimal work. 

For the ideal consistency, beat your ingredients until you get fluffy peaks. Then, pop it in the fridge to chill.

10. Chocolate Chip Cookie Mousse Cheesecake

If you’re more of a chocolate cheesecake fan, then this recipe is for you.

This show-stopping cake features a layer of cookie crust, white chocolate cheesecake, and a chocolate chip cookie crumble mousse.

11. Easy Blueberry Mousse

When I want a healthy alternative for a summer dessert, I make this blueberry mousse.

Rather than heavy cream, this recipe calls for Greek yogurt. It also substitutes sugar with maple syrup.

And it’s full of blueberries! To get a cool blue color, use blueberry juice rather than food coloring. 

12. Cherry Mousse

Another splendid fruity dessert is this cherry mousse. It’s simply bursting with fresh juicy cherries!

If you want to go all out, you can even use cherry Jell-O and toss some maraschino cherries on top.

13. 4-Ingredient Peanut Butter Mousse

Do your kids love peanut butter? Then make them an after-school treat with this recipe. 

All you need is peanut butter, powdered sugar, cream cheese, and heavy cream. 

This dessert does lean towards the richer side, so I recommend serving these in smaller portions. 

14. Frozen Margarita Mousse

This is the reason your friends left you in charge of dessert, again. 

This recipe infuses mousse with margarita mix and lime to make it taste just like the classic cocktail. 

While there’s no booze in this, you could take a hint from the clementine champagne mousse and add a dash if you like.

Although, the mocktail version is just as good.

15. Double Chocolate Mousse Torte

Turn your mousse into a rich dessert with this torte. It combines lush chocolate cake and creamy chocolate mousse. 

To cut the perfect slice, use a springform pan. This will help keep all the layers immaculate. 

16. Easy Chocolate Mousse Pie

I think this pie would be a spectacular addition to a holiday feast. 

This pie features a thick, airy layer of chocolate mousse and whipped topping on an Oreo crust.

To make matters even more chocolatey, it’s garnished with milk chocolate shavings.

17. Dark Chocolate Mousse Cake

Chocoholics, I found your new addiction. 

This dreamy cake has layers upon layers of airy chocolate mousse and enticing dark chocolate cake. 

To give you the rundown on the chocolatey goods, you’ll need cocoa powder, mini chocolate chips, chocolate bars, and chocolate shavings.

18. Chocolate Mousse Brownie Trifles

All my friends know I can’t resist a good trifle recipe. And this one is sure to please. 

This recipe layers the perfect combination of chewy brownies, fluffy chocolate mousse, and whipped cream. 

To make this recipe even easier, use store-bought brownies and whipped cream. It tastes just as good. 

19. Ricotta Mousse With Strawberries Romanoff

Words can’t even begin to describe how much I love this dessert!

It turns macerated strawberries and creamy mousse into a masterpiece.

Strawberries Romanoff is the adult version of strawberries and cream. 

It contains Grand Marnier, which adds a sweet and citrusy twist that is simply divine. 

20. Mint Chocolate Mousse Cupcakes

Kids will beg you for this as their birthday treat!

Each cute cupcake consists of a devil’s food cake and delicious mint chocolate chip frosting. 

To really spoil them on their big day, top each cupcake with some chunks of Andes Mints.
