This Easy 3 Layer Neapolitan Mousse Cakes Recipe Is a Feast for the Eyes and Your Tastebuds

Everyone will flip over this twist on a classic treat, complete with fudgy brownies and berries!

This Neapolitan mousse cakes recipe is three layers of tasty goodness that will cure your sweet tooth in an instant. It has the sweetness of berries and the richness of a brownie bite. And we used coconut milk to add even more irresistible flavor.

To avoid a brownie batter splatter, try this genuis Woman’s World hack, which allows you to shield yourself and the counter by using a plastic storage container lid. Just cut two small X’s in the top of the lid, then slide the mixer’s attachments through the slits and attach them to the mixer’s body. The lid will act as a shield and keep the batter from getting on your clothes and counters.
