Chocolate-Pomegranate Mousse

With all of those lovely pomegranates around the house that I blogged about last week, I just couldn’t resist coming up with some sweet ideas for them. I was already planning on making chocolate mousse for the weekend, so I decided to make it a little more interesting by adding a hint of pomegranate. I topped it off with some homemade whipped cream and a few pomegranate seeds, and then I drizzled some pomegranate syrup over the top. Also, since this mousse is very similar to the mousse I use in my dark chocolate mousse pie, it’s nice and substantial – you could drop it right into a pie crust and have chocolate-pomegranate mousse pie! Just make sure to refrigerate for about 2 hours for the pie. Either way, it’s perfectly rich and delicious!

Pour the 2 Tbsp water into a small bowl. Pour in the gelatin.

Meanwhile, bring the 1/4 cup water to a boil. Pour it into the bowl and stir to dissolve the gelatin completely.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the cocoa powder and sugar. Pour in the whipping cream.

Beat on medium speed until stiff peaks form. Pour in the gelatin mixture and pomegranate juice and beat until well-blended.

Spoon into dessert dishes and refrigerate at least 30 minutes before serving. Serve with whipped cream, pomegranate seeds, and pomegranate syrup for garnish.
