Chef Joe Flamm used this three-ingredient ricotta mousse to help cinch his season 15 Top Chef win. Flamm used the rich, vanilla-scented mousse to dress up a simple brown sugar cake, but it’s also an easy and delicious way to elevate your favorite brownie recipe, or to serve with in-season berries or fresh fruit.
Ultimate Irish Cream Chocolate Mousse
This airy, lightly boozy Irish cream mousse is perfect for a party: It makes a generous 12 cups. If you don’t want to make so much, this recipe is easily halved. We like our mousse garnished with coarsely grated bittersweet chocolate, but a dusting of unsweetened cocoa powder, a dollop of whipped cream or curls of semisweet chocolate would be delicious, too.

Vegan Coconut-Chocolate Mousse
Made with fewer than five ingredients and taking just minutes to make, this healthy mousse is a game-changer. Sure, it's dairy-free, paleo-friendly and vegan, but this mousse's greatest asset is taste and texture. Easily adaptable using whatever ingredients you have on hand — substitute the maple syrup with an equal amount of raw honey, add a pinch of cinnamon instead of the cardamom, or top with any nut, fruit or chocolate — this is a great pantry recipe to have in your back pocket.
