I love dessert mousses. There’s just something about a light and creamy dessert that appeals to me more than anything (well – except for maybe ice cream!) and this recipe for Chocolate Malted Mousse is right up there with one of my all-time favorite mousse recipes.
This recipe combines crushed malted milk balls, chocolate malted milk powder, two kinds of melted chocolate, whipped cream and chocolate liqueur (we used Kahlua since we had that on hand) to make a sweet, rich and creamy chocolate mousse bottom layer. Then it’s topped with a lightly sweetened, cocoa whipped cream as a perfect complement to the sweeter chocolate mousse and finally, garnished with malted milk ball candies.
I originally clipped this recipe out of Better Homes & Gardens magazine a few years ago and stashed it away in my recipe notebook – I’m so glad we finally tried this recipe! I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
