These no-bake Double Chocolate Mousse Shooters make the perfect mini dessert. They have an chocolate crumb crust, a dark chocolate truffle layer then topped with a creamy white chocolate mousse. You can even have more than one, I’ll never tell!
It’s no secret that I love my desserts with something chocolate winning most of the time. It’s something I crave at the end of a meal and just a little dab will do it! I’ve been known to have about a tablespoon of chocolate chips at the end of meal to fix that craving (anyone else do this?). So today’s recipe is perfect for just that little bite of something sweet and just in time for Valentine’s Day.
I have a thing for serving individual desserts – I think you can make a pretty presentation out of them and perhaps make a few different kinds for everyone to try a bit of something. Some of my past individual desserts include these Lemon Raspberry Puffed Pastry Tarts and Cherry Chocolate Nutella Hand Pies. Both of these desserts are also perfect for Valentine’s Day in addition to these Double Chocolate Mousse Shooters.
You could serve these plain, add some raspberries or sprinkles (like shown above).
You are also in luck today because some of my other blogger pals are also showcasing their chocolate desserts. I’m sure you won’t know where to start so maybe you’ll need to try them all! I hope you find something to your liking and I’m sure your family and friends would love to be the recipient of a sweet treat. Enjoy!

Double Chocolate Mousse Shooters
A mini dessert with a double shot of chocolate - the perfect little fix!
Crust - 1 1/2 cups chocolate cookie crumbs, 1/3 cup melted butter
- Chocolate Truffle layer - 12 oz. semi sweet chocolate chips, 1 cup whipping cream, 1 teaspoon vanilla, 2 egg yolks
- Mousse Layer - 4 egg yolks, 1/4 cup sugar, 1 cup whipping cream, 1 cup vanilla chips (white) , 1 1/2 cups whipping cream
- For crust, combine crumbs and melted butter and mix well. Place about 1 Tbl in bottom of shot glass (2 oz) and press down – I refrigerated the glasses at this point
- For truffle: In double boiler (water should be simmering) heat chocolate chips stirring constantly until melted and smooth. Gradually add 1 cup whipping cream and stir constantly until combined (mixture may thicken up a bit but as you add the cream it becomes smooth again – just keep stirring)
- Stir in vanilla and egg yolks – cook and stir 5-6 minutes until thickened and hot.
- Place about halfway up the shot glass the chocolate mixture and refrigerate until firm (about an hour)
- For mousse: beat yolks until thick and lemon color (about 3 minutes); gradually add in sugar and beat until combined.
- Heat 1 cup whipping cream in a saucepan until just hot. Stir about half of hot cream into yolk mixture and then add it all back into saucepan – stirring constantly over low heat until thickened (do not boil)
- Stir in vanilla chips until melted. Pour into bowl and cover and refrigerate until just chilled (about 2 hours)
- Beat 1 ½ cup whipping cream until stiff peaks form. Fold vanilla mixture into whipped cream. Spoon on top of truffle mixture. Refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving. (you will have extra mousse leftover)
- To serve, you could top with whipped cream, a dusting of cocoa and a raspberry. Or other fruit.
