Chocolate mousse shots

Chocolate mousse shots are easy, look good and with the recipe I am sharing pretty fail-safe too.

I had a terrible incident when I hosted a dinner party once. Fortunately it was for a bunch of women friends and they were very forgiving. In fact, like most things in life, disasters can turn into wonderful opportunities to laugh. Where cooking is concerned when things go wrong, you are more likely to remember a meal and this one was lots of fun. There were new cocktails designed by more own fair hand for a start – Pankhurst and Bra burner by name.

So what happened to the chocolate mousse? I had a lovely recipe. I rushed things and did not leave the mousse in the fridge long enough. So as well as having a soup for starters we also had a soup for pudding. Mind you it was tasty!

Anyway to save such culinary embarrassment, her is a simple recipe for your delectation.

Chocolate mousse shots are a tasty dessert brought direct to you from comedienne Jennifer Saunders.

What event will you use the chocolate mousse shots recipe for?

If you love mousse but want to ring the changes I do have a white chocolate alternative with a scrumptious strawberry sauce.

If you love all things chocolate, I have a healthy chocolate chip brownies recipe or you might prefer an indulgent chocolate fondue.
