Layered Mocha Mousse with White Chocolate and Cream

This delicious mocha mousse recipe features layers of chocolate and coffee mousse and layers of white chocolate mousse. Chocolate is one of the nicest mousse flavors and you can choose from dark chocolate, milk chocolate, mocha (which is coffee and chocolate) or white chocolate. In this mocha mousse recipe, you are combining a homemade easy mocha mousse with a instant white chocolate pudding based mousse.

Anyone can make this simple mocha mousse recipe and it is a very appealing looking dessert to serve at a dinner party. You need to chill the two mousses until they are quite thick before you attempt to layer them in the serving glasses. If you layer them while one is still warm or still thin, they will run into each other and ruin the layer effect.

Kahlua, which is a Mexican coffee liqueur, is a wonderful ingredient for a mocha mousse recipe because it really enhances the coffee flavor. The vanilla extract also goes nicely and a lot of Mexican recipes feature coffee, chocolate and vanilla. This easy mocha mousse definitely has Mexican influences. If you like rich, heavenly tasting desserts, you will love the fact that you can make all the best mousse recipes using instant pudding.
