Delicious Chocolate Mousse Brownies – The Best Brownies You’ll Ever Taste!
Chocolate Mousse Brownies are a delightful dessert that combines two favorites into one delicious treat. These brownies are incredibly easy to make and require minimal ingredients, making them the perfect after-dinner indulgence. The light and airy mousse provides a nice contrast to the dense and chewy brownie, creating an unbeatable combination of texture and flavor.
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
- 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 1/4 cup cocoa powder
- 1/4 cup powdered sugar
- Preheat oven to 350°F and grease an 8-inch square baking pan.
- In a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, melt the butter and chocolate chips together, stirring until smooth. Remove from heat and let cool slightly.
- In a large bowl, whisk together the sugar and eggs until light and fluffy. Add the melted chocolate mixture and vanilla extract and stir until combined.
- Add the flour and salt and stir until just combined. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and spread evenly.
- Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool completely.
Chocolate Mousse Layer
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the heavy cream, cocoa powder, and powdered sugar until soft peaks form. Set aside.
- Spread the mousse over the cooled brownie layer and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.
Chocolate Mousse Brownies are best served chilled, but can also be served at room temperature. Top with fresh berries, chocolate shavings, or a dollop of whipped cream for a decadent finish. Enjoy!
