3-Ingredient Chocolate Mousse Recipe Is a Decadent Dessert In Minutes

Chocolate mousse is one of those decadent dessert recipes that my family absolutely adores. That's why I'm so excited about this easy three-ingredient chocolate mousse recipe. It tastes absolutely amazing, but is almost effortless to make. Seriously!

The secret to its simplicity is the pudding mix. With just five minutes of prep, plus an hour to chill, you'll have a bowl of chocolate heaven that people will think took you hours to make. And there's absolutely nothing wrong with that!

To make this three-ingredient chocolate mouse recipe you will need fat-free-milk (or whatever kind of milk you prefer), a large box of instant chocolate pudding mix and a container of whipped topping. Optional toppings include raspberries, chocolate shavings, whipped cream and/or mint leaves. 

Serve this creamy chocolate mousse for dessert after dinner any day of the week, or as a sweet bowl of goodness just because.
