Well sometimes they make me think a little bit too much!  The Spiked ingredient for this challenge is Chocolate Liqueur, so my mind went into overdrive.  Maybe a chocolate sweet roll….or some kind of pasta with a chocolate cream sauce.  Well then I broke my back molar (while eating chocolate chip cookie dough) and needed to switch to soft foods that don’t need to be chewed…..Chocolate Martini Mousse it is!

It is rich and creamy, and best of all, my version is dairy-free!!!  Feel free to substitute heavy cream in place of the coconut milk, it might even turn out fluffier!

The most difficult part of this recipe, is the wait time.  We start by weighing our chocolate.  I used chocolate chips because that was what I had on hand…..

Now this is where things get a little crazy, so listen closely.  Grab a can of coconut milk out of the pantry…the kind in a can…and open it WITHOUT shaking it.  We want the cream that collects at the top…..

I have no idea what to do with the leftover water, so I just dump it out.  If you have a use for it, let me know.  Place chocolate mousse in a martini glass, top with whipped cream, and garnish with chopped candy bars…..
