One of my mum’s best desserts was her chocolate mousse – it was out of this world, and I’ll never forget it. It was rich, luscious, thick, smooth and almost chewy in parts, and I can taste it as I am writing. I’ve tried many times to recreate Mum’s mousse, and this recipe comes closest. Here I’ve added a good glug of Irish whiskey – use the best quality you can get. I also find that instant coffee works better than stronger espresso. Serve this chilled and topped with freshly whipped cream, and I guarantee everyone will come back for more.

    Hi Katie,

    I’m on the hunt for a great Irish Mousse recipe and your’s is looking like a winner. I was just pondering, could you replace the coffee granules with good quality hot chocolate powder for those who don’t like coffee? Personally, I’m a coffee lover from way back but unfortunately I have friends who aren’t so easily swayed.
