I woke up out of a dead sleep the other day needing chocolate.  Not just any old chocolate but fancy chocolate.  I’d had a dream about whipping up a fancy chocolate for the President.  {Just kidding it wasn’t the President but I’m not going to tell you who it actually was ;)}

Does this happen to anyone else?  Where you just have to make something fancy schmancy even if you don’t know what the fancy schmancy thing might be?

I’m going to pretend everyone just said yes.  Now the question really was, what kind of fancy schmancy dessert was it going to be?  It’s amazing the kind of things that come to mind when you think ‘fancy desserts’.  Souffles (yeah, right) and cream puffs (choux pastry, nope) and roses made out of chocolate (eh, maybe but no).  None of them hit me.  Not until I thought the word “mousse”.  Ding ding ding!

I wanted a mousse that didn’t have any eggs in it like most do because I didn’t want to have to worry about tempering eggs.  A thing that never works out for me anyway.  Unless I’m making lemon curd.  So an egg-free mousse is an A+ in my book.  I haven’t had a lot of mousse experience in my life but this is seriously the best chocolate mousse I have ever put into my mouth.  Hands down.

Plus I had the perfectly bright idea to add alcohol.  Bailey’s Irish Cream + chocolate?  Yes, please!  I mean St. Patrick’s Day is coming up and that is the perfect excuse to break out the Bailey’s.  Wow your honey bunny with this fancy chocolate dessert on St. Pat’s and get your drink on.  Sans green beer and drunk college kids.

Unless, you know, you’re into that whole scene.  And then get your green beer drink on, y’all.
