Choc Recipe: Chocolate and Caramel Mousse Jars

Alison Campbell

This is the kind of chocolate dessert that dreams are made of. :) First, there is the chocolate cake. This cake is incredible on it’s own. But then it’s soaked with caramel syrup, and then covered with chocolate mousse. Which brings us to the second layer. The chocolate fluffy mousse goes right over the cake and gets topped with fresh whipped cream and then the whole thing gets drizzled with more syrup and chocolate cake crumbs. Oh my goodness.

You're welcome. :)


For the Cake
110g butter
½ cup chocolate chips
1 cup all-purpose flour
⅓ cup cocoa powder
½ tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
2 eggs
¼ cup granulated sugar
1 tsp vanilla
⅓ cup sour cream
⅓ cup boiling water

For the Caramel Syrup
4 cups milk
1 1/4 cups sugar
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla


For the Chocolate Mousse
1¾ cups milk chocolate chips
4 tbsp butter
4 egg yolks
1 tbsp sugar
3 cups thickened cream


Preheat the oven to 375 F and line the baking sheet with slightly oversized parchment paper. 

To prepare the chocolate cake, melt the butter and chocolate chips over double boiler. Stir and set aside. In a medium mixing bowl combine the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Stir and set aside. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs with sugar and vanilla. Beat until smooth and add the cooled butter/chocolate mixture. Whisk to combine and gradually add the flour mixture, then the sour cream. Be sure to mix until JUST combined (do not over mix) then quickly stir in the hot water. Pour the batter onto the baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool, then crumble the cake with 2 forks.

To make the caramel syrup, stir together 4 cups milk, 1 1/4 cups sugar, and 1/4 teaspoon baking soda in a heavy saucepan. Bring to the boil, then reduce heat and simmer uncovered, stirring occasionally, until caramelized and thickened, about 1 1/2 to 1 3/4 hours. Stir in 1 teaspoon vanilla. Transfer to a bowl to cool.

To make the chocolate mousse, melt the butter and chocolate chips over double boiler. Stir and set aside. In a small sauce pan whisk together the egg yolks, sugar and a few tablespoons of water. Place on the stove over medium low heat and stir constantly until the sauce thickens slightly and just coats the back of a spoon, about 3-4 minutes. Stir the melted chocolate into egg mixture until completely smooth. Place in the fridge while you whip the cream.

Place the cream in the bowl of a standing mixer and whip until stiff peaks form. Reserve a few tablespoons for topping and place in the fridge. Place half of the remaining whipped cream in to the cooled chocolate mousse mixture. Gently fold the cream into the chocolate until no more streaks remain. Add the remaining cream and gently fold into the mousse. Place in the fridge.

To assemble the dessert line up 4 mason jars or glasses. Drizzle the bottom of each jar with 1 tablespoon of the caramel syrup, then crumble in a layer of the cake. Drizzle that with another tablespoon or so of syrup, then add a layer of mouse. Repeat for another layer and finish with the layer of whipped cream. Then add crumbled cake to the top of the whipped cream and drizzle with more syrup. Refrigerate 2 hours or until ready to serve.

Chocoholic not-so-anonymous #4

My name is Jan. I am a chocoholic.

Are you inordinately fond of chocolate?
Definitely one of my greatest loves.......chocolate makes you feel complete.

Chocolate. Incentive or reward? Or both?
I feel it's like a reward , I never over indulge because i want that feeling of having more tomorrow.

When did you know you were a chocoholic?
For as long as I can remember, I think my first chocolate addiction was Bertie Beetles in show bags........god, they were good.

White, milk or dark?
Used to be milk but my palate has widened, and I grew up, so now only dark will do it.

Describe your favourite chocolate in three words...
Rocky Road Heaven

Tell us about your most memorable chocolate experience?
Far too many to choose from, but one that stands out is walking through a side street in Brussels, Belgium where all the chocolate shops are and just eating my way slowly through them all sampling exquisite mouthfuls of the most sublime chocolate.......heavenly moments.

Where is your favourite place to indulge your choc-habit?
I like sitting in comfort so I can feel the total effect of the chocolate.

Secretly solo or shared indulgence?
I like to share my chocolate but sometimes I have to stash it from my husband...

Top choice-choc destination?
My fave little chocolate shop on the planet...Love Byron Bay Creperie & Chocolate Boutique.

Favourite product in the Love Byron Bay chocolate range?
OMG, thats tough but the salted Caramel Rocky Road would have to be top of my list.
