Ingredients

Mint Layer:
  • 2 cups full fat heavy whipping cream cold
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon peppermint extract more if needed
  • 6 drops mint green gel food color
Chocolate Layer:
  • 2 cups full fat heavy whipping cream cold
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar
Garnish:
  • Chocolate sauce
  • Fresh mint leaves

Instructions

  1. For best results, chill the mixing bowl for 10 minutes, before making the mousse.
Mint Layer:
  1. Add all the ingredients to the bowl of a high speed mixer and whisk on medium high until stiff peaks form, stopping once to scrape the sides of the bowl with a spatula.
  2. Make sure not to over mix, the mixture will be grainy if you do. The mixture should resemble stiff clouds, billowy peaks, not runny, and it should hold on well to the whisk, also if should be easy to pipe it.
  3. Set aside.
