Graham Cracker Crust

  • 9 Graham Crackers
  • 4 tbsp Prairie Farms Unsalted Butter melted
  • 1 tbsp Granulated Sugar
  • ¼ tsp Kosher Salt

Chocolate Mousse

  • 8 oz Bittersweet Chocolate Bar chopped
  • cup Prairie Farms Heavy Whipping Cream divided
  • 1 tsp Instant Coffee Granules
  • ¼ tsp Kosher Salt
  • ½ tbsp Pure Vanilla Extract
  • Prairie Farms Aerosol Whipped Cream garnish


  • Make the graham cracker crust. Line an 8"x8" square baking pan by coating with butter and lining with parchment paper.
  • Add graham crackers to a food processor or plastic bag and crush into fine crumbs. Add crumbs to a medium-sized bowl, then stir in melted butter, sugar, and salt.
  • Add the crumb mixture into prepared pan and press into a compact, even layer on the bottom. Chill in the freezer while you make the mousse.
  • Make the Chocolate Mousse. Add the chocolate to a medium-sized bowl. Add ¾ cup of heavy cream, instant coffee, and salt to a saucepan. Heat until very hot, but not boiling, stirring as needed.
  • Pour the hot cream over the chocolate and let sit for about 5 minutes. Add vanilla extract and stir until smooth and a ganache is created. Set aside to cool completely, adding to the fridge to speed up the process if needed.
  • In a large bowl, add the remaining ¾ cup of heavy whipping cream. Beat with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form. Fold the chocolate ganache into the whipped cream until combined.
  • Add the mousse to the prepared crust, spreading into an even layer. Cover with plastic wrap and chill in refrigerator until firm, at least 2 hours.
  • Cut into squares and top with whipped cream to serve. Enjoy!


Store chocolate mousse bars in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
You can easily make the chocolate mousse recipe without the crust. Simply add to individual glasses or in your dish of choice before chilling.
