Chocolate stout mousse with whiskey cream the perfect dessert to add to any St. Patrick’s Day celebrations or just when you feel like treating yourself to something the kids can’t get their hands on! Grab a spoon and dig in.
Hello Food Fanatics! I am so happy to be here as your newest cocktails and boozy desserts fanatic! I love crafting cocktails in my little red kitchen using fresh and seasonal ingredients and then taking some of those to make fun adult only desserts! I say it’s only appropriate that I’m joining you today, on St. Patrick’s Day, to share a chocolate stout mousse with whiskey cream!
I don’t know what it is but when March hits my non-existent Irish blood comes out. I mean the total amount of time I ever actually spent in Ireland lasted approximately 8 hours, but somewhere deep down I have a soft spot for Ireland. It must be the beer, or maybe the whiskey, or both.
Either way, when the green pops up in the stores (and hopefully on land) suddenly I have a need for soda bread slathered with Irish butter, braised cabbage, shepherd’s pie and desserts spiked with stout and whiskey. Just this time last year, I was floating some Baileys mint ice cream in Guinness and baking up cupcakes with chocolate stout and Jameson two years ago.
I’d call it a problem, but it’s too darn delicious to actually admit it as such, therefore it only made sense to carry on the tradition this year by making a chocolate mousse spiked with stout and topped with whiskey whipped cream to mimic a perfectly poured Guinness. This mousse is so easy to prepare, you’ll wonder why you never tried it at home before – the hardest part is waiting for everything to set up!
With a rich deep dark chocolate taste complimented by a bitter stout, I promise non-beer drinkers will be scraping at the bottom of their glass for the very last bite. Serve it after a celebratory St. Patrick's Day dinner - maybe of corned beef and cabbage!
