Triple Chocolate Mousse Cake Minis are the chocolate cake you’ve been dreaming of! 6 layers of chocolate. After all, there is never too much chocolate, right?! It’s pure decadence in every single bite. If you’re not into chocolate but are more of a vanilla person, check out this delicious custard cake recipe!
If you are not a true chocoholic then move on. But if you are, then you must try this Triple Chocolate Mousse Cake Minis.
To tell the truth, this is not quick, simple and easy chocolate cake recipe at all. It has too many steps, but it’s totally worth it.
Actually, it’s not that complicated to make the brownie base and the mousses. But it’s really time consuming and requires a lot of skills to assemble each of these mini cakes.
My biggest problem was the fact that I don’t actually have the necessary equipment. This kind of a recipe requires ramekins and molds for mini mousse cakes and I don’t have it. Again I did not want to buy them because my kitchen cabinets are already overcrowded. I really don’t have space for more equipment.
Therefore I had to improvise using baking paper. Making collars of baking paper and sticking it with the tape, then piping the mousses inside wasn’t as easy as I expected. After all, collars made of paper are not easy to work with as metal molds. So this was a huge challenge for me.
Also working with chocolate during the hot summer day is quite labor. It’s melting and sticking on your fingers…But I’ll do anything for the love of chocolate!
- Make this recipe Low-Carb/Keto by omitting the pure maple syrup and adding liquid stevia or 1/3 cup powdered sugar-free sweetener such as xylitol or monk fruit sweetener. Add an additional 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk to make up for the loss of liquid.
- Add 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract and/or 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon.
- Add a little bourbon if you&rsquore looking for a booze-infused dessert.
- Want to substitute the raw cacao powder for unsweetened cocoa powder? No problem!
- Want to add a small cooked beet for some extra Vitamins and antioxidants? Much encouraged! Follow this recipe for Vegan Beet Chocolate Pudding.
- Make this recipe with honey instead of pure maple syrup for a non-vegan version.
I have used this avocado chocolate mousse recipe to make Dairy-Free Fudgesicles. Simply follow the same method in this post and transfer the mousse to a popsicle mold!
