Chocolate- Cream Cheese Mousse

This is a decadent, very rich dessert. It's delicious, but should be served in small portions. I would even suggest serving it in after-dinner drink glasses with small spoons.

Yield: 6 servings

Prep Time: 15 min


Two 8-ounce packages cream cheese, softened
2 cups granulated white sugar
2 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3 cups heavy whipping cream


1. In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to beat together the cream cheese, sugar and vanilla until light and fluffy and the sugar is completely dissolved. Beat in the cocoa until blended and the chocolate is dissolved. Set aside.

2. In a separate bowl, whip the heavy cream until soft peaks form. Fold in half of the whipping cream into the chocolate mixture. Fold together until completely blended. Then fold in the remainder of the whipping cream.

3. Divide the chocolate mousse between six individual serving glasses. Mixture should be firm enough to hold shape. If not, refrigerate until set, at least 30 minutes. Keep chilled until ready to serve.


*If you are preparing this recipe as gluten-free, just be sure to use a brand of vanilla that is known to be GF.

    I was looking for a twist to my typical quick chocolate mouse and loved the idea of adding cream cheese! This recipe is ok (I 1/2 it but recommend 1/4 if just for a quick chocolate fix for 2). Next time I would reduce the amount of cream so you can actually taste the cream cheese. Otherwise I recommend saving the calories and work and just making a quick treat of cream, chocolate, and powder sugar.
