Easy Baileys Chocolate Mousse Recipe – a boozy dessert for chocolate lovers. No bake sweet treat.

Made with Baileys Irish Cream. Just in time for St Patrick’s Day!

Chocolate Mousse is one of my favorite desserts.

What about Baileys? I like this whiskey and cream based liqueur. I rarely buy it though.

But when I do, I often make a chocolate martini or this Easy Baileys Chocolate Mousse.

If you are not a fan of alcohol and Baileys, you might want to just make a regular chocolate mousse. Baileys is what makes this dessert unique!

Love the flavor it adds.

This Easy Baileys Chocolate Mousse is set with gelatin.

No egg yolks or complicated pastry making techniques required.

All you need it – chocolate, Baileys Irish cream, heavy whipping cream, gelatin and water. Only five ingredients and some patience to wait until it sets.

This is the perfect holiday dessert, if you are a fan of desserts in a cup, just like me.

This Baileys chocolate mousse makes a delicious cake filling, too. Can’t wait to use it in a cake.

I topped it with some fine chocolate shavings, but you can also add some whipped cream on top.

My inspiration for this Easy Baileys Chocolate Mousse Recipe was a box of Baileys Chocolate Candy I spotted at the store.

They tasted amazing! I almost ate the whole box, then I thought it is time for a Baileys inspired dessert.

I don’t celebrate St. Patrick’s Day regularly, but I love the food and green beer served.

I also live in the suburbs of Chicago, which is famous for it’s Downtown Parade and the dyeing of the Chicago River green.

What is your favorite boozy dessert?
