Chocolate Mousse Brownies

I love brownies! They are my favourite dessert. I’ll make them once a week and people go nuts for them! This time I wanted to mix things up and add another dimension to it. The brownies are so fudgy and gooey, it needed something creamy to just it to the next level. So a light and creamy chocolate mousse was definitely needed.

Chocolate mousse brownies

This recipe is so easy and delicious, you will wish you had tried it before!

Firstly, you need to make the brownie batter, bake the brownies and then set them aside to cool to room temperature. Next make the mousse mixture and spread it over the top of the brownies. Top the mousse with some chocolate shavings or chocolate curls, then chill them for 2 hours.

I highly recommend chilling these for an hour or so before cutting these yummy brownies. The mousse needs to set before slicing. Wipe the knife clean between each cut. And serve immediately.
