Maple Mousse Recipe

I love to make this dessert with maple syrup produced in our area. For a change from heavier cakes and pies, it’s a refreshing ending to a holiday meal.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. + chilling YIELD:6 servings


  • 3/4 cup plus 6 teaspoons maple syrup, divided
  • 3 egg yolks, lightly beaten
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons chopped hazelnuts, toasted


  • 1. In a small saucepan over medium heat, heat 3/4 cup syrup just until it simmers. Reduce heat to low. Whisk a small amount of hot syrup into egg yolks; return all to the pan, whisking constantly. Cook and stir until mixture is thickened and reaches 160°. Transfer to a large bowl; set bowl in ice water and stir for 2 minutes. Cool to room temperature.
  • 2. In a large bowl, beat cream until stiff peaks form. Gently fold into the syrup mixture. Spoon into dessert dishes. Chill for at least 2 hours. Just before serving, drizzle with remaining syrup and sprinkle with hazelnuts. Yield: 6 servings.

"Tasty dessert. Used it to make maple trifle. I found that I needed to add more egg yolks to thicken the syrup. I also added maple extract and extra syrup to the whipped cream to bump up the maple flavour a little bit."
