Dark Orange Chocolate Mousse Pots

A delicious sweet treat in a pot, our dark orange chocolate mousse recipe offers a spot of indulgence and relatively easy to make. Let us know how you get on with it.

Dark Orange Chocolate Mousse Recipe



  • 500ml Whipping Cream
  • 250g Dark Orange Chocolate (roughly chopped; this means 3 bars, although you can half the recipe should you choose)
  • 1tsp Vanilla Extract


  • Heat the cream in short bursts in the microwave until bubbles begin to form around the edges. Pour over the chopped chocolate, and leave to stand for a couple of minutes so that it starts to melt; then stir with a whisk until all of the chocolate is properly melted and smooth, then stir in the vanilla.
  • Now you need to leave the mixture to cool completely, and place in the fridge for at least 6 hours; if not, overnight to chill and set.
  • Take it out of the fridge, and whip the chocolate cream with an electric hand mixer until stiff peaks (for which only takes a couple of minutes).
  • Spoon into small bowls, add a swirl of cream, sprinkle with grated chocolate left over from the bars and enjoy.
