Vegan 1-Ingredient Miracle Chocolate Mousse

vegan chocolate mousse

This technique of making mousse is surprising in so many ways. Firstly, the fact that it actually works is astounding as chocolate and water are not usually the best combination. It is also so simple to make, really tastes like chocolate mousse and is completely vegan.

  • Prep Time
  • 4Servings


  • 1 cup water
  • 1 (10-ounce) bag chocolate chips


1. Bring water to a simmer.

2. Whisk in chocolate chips until chocolate is completely melted.

3. Fill a bowl with ice cubes and place the pot over the ice or pour the chocolate into a bowl and place that over ice.  Using a whisk, hand blender, or standing mixer, whisk mixture until a mousse texture forms.

4. Once you achieve mousse-like consistency, stop mixing; if you over mix the mousse will harden. Pour into bowls or ramekins and let set. Eat immediately or refrigerate until ready to serve, it should sit for 2-3 days. 

Note: If you overmix and it gets grainy or hard, simply melt it again and whisk it more carefully.  If it doesn't thicken at all, melt it again and add some chocolate then follow the directions again.
