Chocolate Stout Mousse with Whiskey Cream has booze in the mousse and topping. Happy St. Patrick's Day!
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!
