I made you a cake 💕
This Chocolate Mousse Cake is made using just 5 ingredients, but it looks spectacular. And it tastes even better than it looks.
A crunchy Oreo crust topped with silky, smooth chocolate mousse and clouds of freshly whipped cream. It’s the perfect no bake chocolate cake.
If you’re looking for something to satisfy your chocolate fix but don’t want to turn the oven on, this 👆🏻 Chocolate Mousse Cake is your answer. Not only is it super easy to make but it tastes amazing.
The cookie base is made using whole Oreos, so it’s buttery and sweet and just a little bit crunchy. But the star of the show is most definitely that chocolate filling. It’s made using just three ingredients – and two of them are chocolate.
Make no mistake, this Chocolate Mousse Cake is not for the faint-hearted. It’s oh-so-chocolately. Serve a slice with whipped cream and fresh raspberries for the ultimate no bake dessert.
This is my go-to recipe when I’m entertaining because you can make it ahead of time. Since you need to give it time to set in the fridge, it’s best to make it the night before.
It keeps really well in the fridge and you can just whip it out at a dinner party and it looks like you’ve spent hours making it. But the truth is, it takes less than 30 minutes to throw together.
You will love this cake because:
- You only need a handful of ingredients
- It’s quick and easy to make
- It looks super impressive – your guests will love it!
- The chocolate mousse just melts-in-your-mouth
- You can make it ahead of time
TIPS FOR MAKING CHOCOLATE MOUSSE CAKE
- Start your cake by crushing your Oreo cookies. You can leave the cream filling in, it adds extra flavour – and who wants to sit there dividing the Oreo cookies and the cream filling? Not me!
- If you don’t have a food processor, you can put your Oreo cookies in a plastic zip lock bag and bash them with a rolling pin. It takes a little extra time and elbow grease, but the result is ultimately the same.
- The chocolate mousse is made using chocolate and cream. I recommend a mix of half milk (sweet) chocolate and half dark (semi-sweet) chocolate. This gives you the perfect blend of chocolate flavour and sweetness – without having to add any extra sugar.
- The final important step is making sure you whip your cream properly. The cream is what is going to give the cake it’s luscious, full-bodied texture and it’s also going to help the cake set. To check your cream is whipped to stiff peaks, try the bowl trick – you should be able to tip your bowl upside down without any cream moving. That’s how you know you’re good to go!
