Nothing like your average dessert, this Coca Cola chocolate mousse is made with Coke Zero. It has great flavor, sweetness and a light airy texture. Very simple to make, served chilled and topped with whipped cream.
If you watch sports, you know March is all about basketball. And of course, spring is finally here, but you can’t really tell since we got some snow and colder weather in Chicago.
It is time for NCAA® March Madness. My husband and I aren’t huge basketball fans (he is more into power sports), but some of our friends are. One of them – Jack is a Wisconsin graduate, so he is the biggest NCAA® March Madness fan around here.
So being surrounded by basketball fans, we decided to get together and watch the game this weekend.
I love traditional “game style” food like wings and pulled pork sliders, but this time I left the guys make whatever they want.
I wanted to make a dessert for them.
I headed to Walmart to get some drinks and of course Coke, which I needed for my chocolate mousse recipe.
I was very excited to see the Cherry and Vanilla flavors, from Coca Cola NCAA® Final Four Packs they had. I grabbed a bunch of the Coca Cola NCAA® Final Four Packs – Coke Zero, Cherry and Vanilla.
They are also a great deal, you can get 4 packs (16 cans) for $5 or 2 packs for $3. Having them packaged in smaller quantities (of 4) is very convenient.
I was debating if I should make the chocolate mousse with Coca Cola NCAA® Final Four Packs Zero Or Vanilla, but decided to go with the Zero.
This chocolate mousse is so light and delicious, served in individual cups makes the perfect party dessert. The recipe makes 6 small servings, but feel free to double it and store any that is left in the fridge for up to 4 days.
The guys really loved it!
And of course to make my life easier, I made the mousse in plastic cups.
This coca cola chocolate mousse takes under 30 minutes to make and you should also chill it for 30 more minutes. Top with whipped cream, to make it look even more tempting.
I love mini desserts and this chocolate coca cola mousse was just perfect for our NCAA® March Madness party. Hope you get to try it and of course like it. Are you planning to watch any basketball games?
