    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Whisk the eggs and sugar together in a metal bowl (I use my kitchen-aid bowl). And set it over a pan of simmering water.
    2. 2
      Whisk the mixture until it reaches a temperature of 160 degrees (use an instant read or candy thermometer), it should take approximately 5 minutes. Whisk the entire time, being careful not to have scrambled eggs.
    3. 3
      Remove bowl from the pan of simmering water and place on your mixer and beat with the whisk attachment at medium – high speed until it is cool to your touch(on the outside of the bowl) and very thick. This should take approximately 10 minutes.
    4. 4
      While beating the egg and sugar mixture, melt your chocolate and cool to lukewarm.
    5. 5
      In a separate bowl, combine the whipping cream and Baileys together and beat until stiff peaks form.
    6. 6
      Pour the melted chocolate over the egg and sugar mixture and fold in until blended. Then fold in the whipped cream mixture. I will add a small amount of the cream mixture and blend it in (this will lighten up the mixture a bit) and then fold in the remaining until only streaks of white remain.
    7. 7
      Place in a bowl, cover with saran wrap and chill till set, overnight.
    8. 8
      Once set, it can be spread over a cake layer to be used as filling. Make sure you pipe a dam of your buttercream around the outer edges of the layers to prevent the mousse from being pushed out.
    9. 9
      This is also excellent served as just a mousse dessert.

      This mousse is SO delicious! I've made it several times as a filling in a triple layer chocolate cake with a ganache frosting poured on top, it's always a big hit and it's beautiful. I've tried other Bailey's Mousse recipes and they've been grainy. This mousse is silky, smooth and decadent!!
