A Touch of Natural Sweetness

I like to keep things on the healthier side, even during the holidays. So, I sweeten the mousse with a touch of maple syrup. It’s a natural kind of sweet that pairs perfectly with the chocolate and hazelnut, making it a real crowd-pleaser. Plus, you don’t have to feel guilty about indulging in this Christmas dessert.

The Secret to Fluffiness – Aquafaba

For that magical, airy texture, we introduce aquafaba into the mix. Aquafaba is the liquid from a can of chickpeas, and it’s a fantastic plant-based alternative to egg whites for achieving a mousse’s signature fluffiness. Combined with a hint of lemon juice and a pinch of salt, it whips up into soft peaks that give our mousse its cloud-like consistency.

Bringing Christmas Magic to the Table

When I serve this Silky Hazelnut Mousse, it’s like I’m bringing a little bit of Christmas magic to the table. It’s perfect for our holiday dinner, and it’s the grand finale that everyone looks forward to. But, honestly, I love to enjoy it anytime by the fireplace too. It’s become a must-have in our Christmas traditions.

Hazelnut Mousse



  1. Place the chopped chocolate into a metal or glass bowl suspended over a pot of water. Make sure the bottom of the bowl does not touch the water. Warm up the water on a very low heat. When the water starts to simmer, switch the heat off but keep the bowl on the pot.

  2. Once the chocolate has melted, gently stir in the coconut milk. Next add in the hazelnut butter and maple syrup, and stir again. Keep the bowl over the warm pot until ready to use.

  3. Place the aquafaba, lemon juice and salt in a large bowl. Using an electric mixer, whip the aquafaba until it reaches stiff peaks. To check, turn the bowl upside down and the mixture should not slide out of the bowl. It takes about 5 minutes with a handheld mixer to reach this consistency.

  4. Add a third of the chocolate mixture to the bowl of aquafaba. Using a slow folding motion, gently incorporate it into the aquafaba. Incorporate the other two thirds in the same way. The mixture will deflate a little, but that’s normal.

  5. Transfer the mixture into glasses and place in the refrigerator to set overnight.

  6. When ready to serve, top with chopped hazelnuts.
