Baileys Mousse Pie is a fast and easy No Bake Dessert Recipe. A creamy filling tops a chocolate wafer base then a Chantilly Cream brings it all together!
Baileys Mousse Pie
This month for my little get together with my three Blogger friends, we decided to share a Baileys or Guinness Recipe.
The perfect way to share my Irish Roots for the 17th!
Naturally my choice was Baileys! And since I wanted something quick and easy, which also means No Bake, I decided this Baileys Mousse Pie would be perfect!
If you like to taste the Baileys in your dessert then this is the Pie for you.
The Italian after the first forkful told me “Wow you can really taste the Baileys”, I asked if he thought it was too much, “Nope I like it like this”. Me too!
Does Mousse Contain Gelatine?
Not all Mousse Recipes contain gelatine, but I did use it in this Pie Recipe to help the mousse set.
You could always use Agar Agar as a one for one substitute if you prefer.
Who invented Baileys?
According to Wikipedia, Baileys Irish Cream was created by Tom Jago of Gilbeys of Ireland. Baileys was first introduced in 1974 as the first Irish cream on the market.
John Chesterman granted permission for the use of The Baileys name after Gilbeys asked to use the name. The name is from a restaurant that John Chesterman owned.
Baileys is produced in Dublin and Mallusk (Northern Ireland).
Helpful Tips to Make Baileys Mousse
- Whisk together the sugar and flour, to remove any lumps.
- Add the milk a little at a time, whisking as you add, helps keep the mixture smooth.
- Let the mixture cool before adding the Baileys and then fold in the whipped cream.
- Fold in a little of the Mousse mixture to the Gelatine and then add to the remaining Mousse mixture.

How long does Mousse Pie last?
The Mousse Pie will last up to 2-3 days, but make sure to cover the pie loosely in Plastic wrap and keep it refrigerated.

No Bake Baileys Mousse Pie
- 1 3/4 cups chocolate cookie crumbs (205 grams)
- 1/3 cup butter (melted) (66 grams)
- 3 tablespoons granulated sugar (40 grams)
- 1/4 cup all purpose flour (30 grams)
- 3/4 cup whole milk (200 ml)
- 1/4 cup + 3 tablespoons Baileys (100 ml)
- 1 cup whole / whipping cream (240 ml)
- 1/4 cup whole / whipping cream (55 grams)
- 1 tablespoon gelatine
- 2.75 ounces dark chocolate (75 grams)
- 1 1/2 cups whole / whipping cream (330 grams)
- 1 1/2 tablespoons powdered / icing sugar
- Mix together the cookie crumbs and melted butter and press down in a lightly buttered 9 inch (23 cm) pie dish. Place in the refrigerator while you make the Mousse.
- In a medium pot whisk together the sugar and flour, then slowly add the milk, whisking as you add with the heat on low / medium until the mixture has become very thick, stirring constantly. Cover with plastic and set aside to cool.
- Meanwhile whip the cream until stiff peaks form.
- Once cool, whisk briskly to remove any lumps that may have occurred. Fold in the Baileys, then fold in the whipped cream.
- In a small pot mix the gelatine and whipping cream, let sit for 5 minutes. Then heat on medium / low and stir just until the gelatine dissolves, do not boil. Add a couple of tablespoons of the Baileys Mousse and stir to combine. Then fold into the remaining bowl of Baileys Mousse until combined.
- Remove crumb base from the fridge and pour the Baileys Mousse on top. Cover lightly with plastic and refrigerate 8 hours or overnight.
- Just before serving beat the whole cream and powdered sugar, and decorate the set Mousse Pie*. Drizzle with melted chocolate if desired. Enjoy!
*I covered the pie with 1/3 of the cream, then added a simple flower tip around the border.

I am curious why you would put flour in the mousse recipe, it is not cooked, how does this work. I never heard of that.
Hi Teri, it helps to thicken the filling.
