4-Ingredient Frozen Chocolate Mousse Recipe Is Pure Chocolate Heaven

Chocolate. Mousse. Two words that can make a chocolate lover weep. How about a frozen chocolate mousse recipe? Even in the winter months, there's nothing like cold, creamy chocolate.

The quick and easy frozen chocolate mousse recipe is made with whipping cream, sugar, cocoa powder, vanilla and rum extract. The rum extract is an optional ingredient, but adds a wonderful flavor to the mousse. If you choose not to use the rum extract, increase the vanilla to 1 teaspoon.

This super simple chocolate mousse recipe takes less than 10 minutes to whip up. Pop it in the freezer for two hours, then get ready for the recipe requests. This four-ingredient creamy chocolate mousse would be a delicious ending to your Valentine's Day meal. Be sure to top it with a fresh strawberry or raspberry!

What a simple, yet no doubt delicious dessert! You've done it again Donna John!
Now...if the weather in Alberta, Canada would only justify this treat. June 20th & it's 50°F out. Supposed to hit 71° tomorrow, so here's hoping! 🤞
Donna John
Woop! So happy you like the recipe! It's in the 100s in Texas, so I'm all about anything frozen. :-)
No doubt! I'd be the one lying in an ice bath with a fan blowing. We didn't hit 71° yesterday but they said we should today. Guess we'll just have to wait l& see.

Uh, this recipe was stupid easy to make, and even more stupid delicious! I can't wait to serve it to some unsuspecting guest. It's 90+ in Michigan, so any time is a good time for frozen treats! Thank you, thank you for posting this recipe.
Donna John
Yeah! So glad you enjoyed it! It's 100 plus in Texas, so I feel your pain. Rachel Marie
