Do you love AMARULA? That actually sounds like a stupid question to me – like asking “who loves chocolate?”. Duh. Everybody.
So try my AMARULA Chocolate Mousse! I wanted to make a sugar-free mousse (originally)…and this one CAN BE – if you omit the Amarula. I was planning to use xylitol as the sugar substitute…but then there was a conveniently-placed shot-sized bottle staring me in the face. So I thought “hmmm…HECK YEAH!!” And added it to the mix 🙂
You could say this is a DIET dessert – at 112 calories per serving (and the serving size is pretty big). Can you imagine? Eating Amarula Chocolate Mousse and losing weight?! What is this trickery??!! But I promise you it’s LEGIT 😉
Is it easy to make?
How long does it take?
It took me about 10-15 minutes to mix everything together. Then pour the mixture into glasses and refrigerate overnight…here’s to waking up with chocolate! You can also pop them in the fridge in the morning, and they should be ready for a dinner-time dessert 🙂 Just make sure they set for AT LEAST 4 hours.
The key ingredient:
An important note before making my Amarula Chocolate Mousse:
Because this recipe calls for RAW EGGS (in case you didn’t know – that’s how you make mousse) – I would advise using only the FRESHEST eggs. I know some people are a bit “iffy” when it comes to raw eggs…just the thought of it…so just make sure the eggs are fresh to be safe 😉 You don’t want to miss out on this!
To make SUGAR FREE Chocolate Mousse:
Just leave out the Amarula liqueur…(noooooo!!!!).
