    Vseward (Chef~V)'s Note:

    Another favorite recipe using Bailey's Irish Cream. Chocolate Mousse is great, but adding a little Bailey's makes it decadent! I've had this recipe for years and can't remember where my friend got it, but I'm glad she shared.

      This is very rich. I could only eat a very small serving, but it was delicious. The instructions were easy to follow, except they don't say what to do with the first 1/2 cup cream (common sense said to put it in with the chocolate). The only change I made was to use chocolate mint flavored Bailey's which was yummy and I'm sure it'll be great with original Bailey's as well. Thanks for sharing such a treat.

      Wonderful! I made this for my husband and our best friend tonight. It is a fantastic recipe that is restaurant-quality once it's done right. But like anything worth doing well, this recipe takes some effort to put together. Also, if you're going to get a good product out of this recipe, you have to buy good ingredients (i.e. Ghirardelli baking chocolate, etc.), and that is not cheap. But if you're willing to invest the time, energy, and money into the dessert, the rewards are WELL worth that investment! Try it for yourself!

      Get a grip JillyBean1026! It's a great recipe. There's only a few ingredients in a chocolate mousse, so I'm sure there's many similarities. Don't ever post a recipe for a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.. you'll sure get someone like yourself saying you didn't give credit to the original person! I wouldn't change a thing about this recipe. My guests loved it! I agree it's rich, but worth the calories! It was a great ending to my Irish-based meal!
