Chocolate Coca-Cola Mousse




About: Hey y'all! My name is Lydia and I want to share my passion for cooking/baking with everyone!

Hey guys, today I'm bring you an interesting recipe: Coca Cola Chocolate Mousse! WHAT! I know it sounds so weird but it works out (unless you get clumps, but even those and satisfying). I definitely need to work on my mousse and gelatin skills ;-) If you want to know how to make your own chocolate Coca Cola mousse, follow the step by step guide below or watch the video tutorial here:

Step 1: Ingredients & Tools


  • 2 packs unflavored Gelatin (7 grams each)
  • 5 T cold Water
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 Egg Yolk
  • ¼ C sugar
  • ½ C Chocolate Chips
  • 1 C Coca Cola
  • ¾ C Heavy Whipping Cream Whipped cream for decoratin


Step 2: The Gelatin

Sprinkle gelatin over a bowl with 5 tbsp cold water, stir a bit and let it dissolve for a few minutes.

Step 3: Egg Mixture Over Double Boiler

In a heat safe bowl, over a double boiler, whisk together egg, egg yolk and sugar and cook for about 8 minutes until thick and creamy, whisking constantly.

Step 4: Add Gelatin to Egg Mixture

Warm up gelatin and water mixture over a double boiler until it liquifies again and add egg mixture.

Step 5: Melt Chocolate Over Double Boiler and Combine

Melt chocolate over a double boiler and add it to the egg, sugar and gelatin mixture. Mix until combined and let it cool at room temperature.

Step 6: Add Coke and Cool!

Carefully whisk in Coke, it may seem like it is way too much coke and far too much liquid but go ahead and keep whisking until combined. Once it cools, the coke will combine with the gelatin. Place in the fridge for 10 minutes, until it begins to thicken. Keep an eye on it (Stir 2-3 times).

Step 7: Whipped Cream.

Beat heavy cream until stiff peaks form.

Step 8: Add Whip Cream to Mixture.

Add whipped cream into chocolate mixture. (You might want to use a whisk, instead of spatula). Gently fold the mixture until it is combined.

Step 9: Place Into Serving Cups

Spoon mousse into serving cups. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

Step 10: Cool and Enjoy!

Remove the mousse from refrigerator, decorate with whipped cream, serve and enjoy!

Strangely enough this Coca Cola chocolate mousse has an oddly satisfying taste. The coke is not overpowering, but there is a hint of it in every bite.

    Hello Lydia,

    Nice writing and video. It look tasty and I will try it.

    Just one thing... In the ingredients list, you write 1 C of Coca-Cola but the cup your are holding, in the photo and the video, seem to have way more than a cooking cup mesure witch is 8 oz. look more like a 16 oz cup so 2 cups. Just want to be sure ;-)

    It looks like more but it's actually just a 1 cup measuring cup. Let me know how it goes when you make it!

    Looks yummy! I'm going to try this with some lower calorie substitutions: Diet Coke, Stevia, unsweetened chocolate, reduced fat Cool Whip.

    I don't see why not, virtually all the ingredients can be substituted :)

    Somewhat reminiscent, I imagine, of the flavor of an old fashioned chocolate ice cream soda, except one made with Coca Cola rather than soda water or Ginger Ale. Since that ice cream concoction is one of my favorite "comfort foods", I'll have to give your mouse a try! Thanks for sharing!

    I suppose it can be a bit similar, haha. It was quite good and oddly satisfying and I'm not a big coke drinker but I liked it. Your welcome and let me know how you like it :)
