great mousse, love this one. a little hint warm the coconut oil to just melted but not hot, then add it to the other ingredients already in the bowl. All other ingredients including eggs should be at room temperature otherwise the coconut oil will solidify resulting in a lumpy mixture. I found using an electric whisk worked well and it takes about 3 mins to get it whipped double in volume, it will still look runny, but put it in the fridge and it will set. Just remember it melts quickly when taken out!

Easy and yummy. Will certainly be making it again. Kids less keen, but that's not a problem - more for us!

Soooo easy and absolutely delicious. I served this in 3 cocktail glasses with raspberries or strawberries on top. It set perfectly. I've also put them into shot glasses with some amaretto in the bottom. If you can't get cacao, you can easily use cocoa powder instead. Highly reccommended.

I made this recipe yesterday and doubled the quantities however, it was very runny and even having left overnight in the fridge, it is still runny. I have now put it in the freezer hoping that it will set for tonight.

Did you use chocolate or cocoa powder? The fat in chocolate (cocoa butter) sets hard when cold and would set the mousse. You would not get this if cocoa powder was used.

When you say cacao powder, is this the same as cocoa powder?

Cacao powder is raw ground cacao beans, the cocoa powder is a heated powder or roasted and ground version that is cheaper but lacks all the vitamins and minerals as these are destroyed in the heating process. cacao powder gives a more creamy dessert
