3-Ingredient Chocolate Mousse

Simple desserts are often some of the very best. This chocolate mousse is made with only three ingredients. And get this – it’s also dairy-free, egg-free, gluten-free, and completely delicious.

The process is also very simple – nothing more than heating coconut milk and adding it to chopped chocolate. Just like making ganache. Then a little raw honey or pure maple syrup is added to sweeten it every so slightly. The result is a dense dark chocolate mousse to rival any other. Because it is so rich and decadent, a little scoop is all you need. It goes really well with berries and is the perfect little dessert.
