Liégeoise au Chocolat/Eggless Chocolate Liégeoise

Desserts have their important place in French cuisine. Seriously after coming to France, i learned how eat a meal and finish with a dessert. Basically we Indians doesnt matter about desserts and we finish mostly our meals with a fruit. But French peoples always need their dose of desserts and needless to say the varieties of desserts exists in French cuisine. The top most French dessert is always Chocolate mousse and the main ingredient for making most of the desserts is 'Egg', however my today's recipe goes for an eggless Chocolate dessert topped with whipped cream.

Coffee Liégeoise is the most popular French dessert but since French peoples are crazy about chocolate in most of their desserts,chocolate liégeois do exists. Actually this dessert is prepared with eggs,melted chocolate and sugar topped with whipped cream. But my today's recipe is quite different, instead of this eggs loaded mousse like dessert,i went for an eggless chocolate cream topped with whipped cream.

Some famous French brands are known for their Liégeoise au chocolat and this dessert is our favourite one after chocolate mousse. Easily available in markets, this dessert is seriously very easy to dish out at home. When i was searching for this dessert, i got hooked to this eggless version of Liégeoise au chocolat and prepared immediately to serve as dessert for our sunday meal. Since this dessert goes for easy ingredients which is easily available in your pantry and in your fridge, you can make it anytime of the day. Apart from the chilling part, quite an easy dessert to make and enjoy.

Such a decadent dessert and easy to make as well. I like the eggless version better as I am always afraid to make custard with eggs.
