Hey have you guys noticed it’s been an extraordinarily sweet week here on Wandercooks?

First up we shared one of our tastiest mistakes ever, these deliciously Addictive Scrambled Pancakes, followed up with Grandma’s never-fail Just Plain Easy Homemade Scones.

And this weekend is about to get even sweeter with our pièce de résistance – this gloriously chocolatey and super-easy-to-whip-up 3 Ingredient German Chocolate Mousse.

Oh yes.

I’m gonna blame the weather for this week’s sweet-scapades.

It’s been rainy and cloudy yet weirdly warm and horrible this week.

There I said it.

Far more fun to stay inside, throw a few tasty ingredients around the kitchen and feast on the delicious results.

4 Ingredient German Chocolate Mousse

This mousse is THE CURE for whatever is ailing you.

Sick of that rainy weather? Have some chocolate mousse.

Bad day at work? Have some chocolate mousse.

Craving chocolate? Chocolate mousse!

It couldn’t be easier to make, since you’ve only got four ingredients to whip together:

  • Cream
  • Sugar
  • Cocoa powder
  • Shredded coconut

That’s it.

Throw them in a mixing bowl, whip away with an egg beater, or a stab blender… or just chuck all that out and use a blender or food processor instead.

What you get out of it is a lusciously thick, yet deliciously light and chocolatey mousse that we’re sorry NOT SORRY to say will be super addictive and impossible to stop eating until that bowl is well and truly licked clean.

This is the most bad-ass 5 minute chocolate mousse I've EVER made.Click To Tweet

 

Mm hmmmmmm.

Can’t get enough of the baking fun lately? You probably need a slice or two of this Persimmon (P)Apple Crumble.

Or maybe you don’t feel like baking at all? This Belgian Vanilla Blanc Manger might be more your style. Or throwback to one of our favourite sweet desserts, these Honeyed Pepper Clove Strawberries. (YES!! Pepper + strawberries is a thing and you need to know it!) 😀

Better go, we’ve just made our next bowl of chocolate mousse and I need to eat my share before Sarah does!

  1. What is the yield on this?

      Hi Ashes! We actually didn’t measure our final batch haha – too busy eating! The mousse thickens quite a bit as you whip it, and filled our medium size mixing bowl nicely before portioning out. You should have plenty for dessert for six people at least. Probably more! (But I guess it depends how hungry you are) 😉

    Is it single cream or double cream ? How many ounces is a cup ?

    • Wandercooks

      Hey Fiona, thanks for stopping by. Definitely use double cream (I’ll update the recipe to include that) – it’s much better for whipping. Single cream is better for soups or sauces where you want the texture to remain quite thin. In terms of ounces to cups – we use Australian cup measurements so that means you’ll need 16oz (ie 2 cups or 500ml)

  3. This sounds amazing! Speaking as not the biggest coconut fan– would it work if I left the flakes out? Or replaced them with something else..?

      Absolutely Sonja, feel free to leave out the coconut if you prefer. You’ll still end up with a deliciously thick chocolate mousse, the coconut just gives it an extra subtle flavour and texture. Enjoy!

    Can this be made the night before and sit in the fridge over night?

    • Wandercooks

      03/08/2016 at 2:19 pm

      Sure thing Shawna, just be sure to keep it in a sealed container.

      • So i made this last night and it is bitter do u have a suggestion on how to fix it?

        • Wandercooks

          04/08/2016 at 8:01 am

          Hey Shawna, perhaps your cocoa is making it bitter? Try adding extra sugar to make it sweeter or maybe experiment with a drinking chocolate powder – they’re usually less bitter and quite sweet! 🙂

  5. Dibs on licking the whisk!! Oh! You’ve already washed it? Well, darn it looks so good I wanted to lick it clean. YUM!!The recipe sounds fantastic. This is certainly a must make. Have a great day!!

  6. I love how easy and delicious this sounds

  7. I love/hate that this is so easy to make 😉 Looks amazing and I can only imagine how delicious! I’m sure I’ll have this today!

  8. This looks fantastic, and I love that there’s no raw egg!! And coconut.. Yum!!

  9. Umm so, forget sharing this! I feel like I could eat the whole lot 😛

      Yep yep yep! We’re all for simply delicious awesomeness. Enjoy 😉

  10. I cannot believe how easy this is. It’s an awesome way to spend 5 minutes! And I would most likely eat have this on a Sunday night, I have a serious case of oh-no-Monday-is-almost-here that desperately needs curing!

    • Wandercooks

      02/05/2016 at 9:13 am

      Yep haha, we know that feeling! Hopefully this will help you feel a bit better and ready to face the new week. (With maybe a little left over for a Monday morning pick-me-up 😛 )
