You won’t be intimated to make this silky chocolate mousse for dessert. This is not just the best, it’s the easiest mousse you will ever make!

Makes: 8 servings 


1 – 12oz Bellwether Farms Whole Milk Basket Ricotta
2 Tablespoons powdered sugar
5 oz – semi-sweet chocolate, melted
1 cup heavy cream (not ultra-pasteurized)
3 Tablespoons Grand Marnier liqueur


In a food processor, blend the ricotta, sugar and melted chocolate until smooth. Add the Grand Marnier and pulse until combined. Transfer the mousse to a large mixing bowl and set aside. In another mixing bowl, whip the cream to soft peaks. With a spatula, gently fold the cream into the ricotta mixture until smooth and combined. Spoon into glass dessert dishes and chill until ready to serve. Crisp cookies or tuile make a nice accompaniment. Can be made a day ahead and refrigerated.
