Classic Chocolate Mousse

There are so many chocolate mousse recipes out there, it’s really hard to choose the right one or even know which one is the right one, don’t worry I got you covered!

With this full proof, flop proof recipe, you can’t go wrong. It’s delicious, it’s airy, it’s fluffy and everything you want in a chocolate mousse.

It’s a classic, a family favourite, a chocolate lovers dream. My chocolate mousse recipe makes enough for 4 servings.

100g 70% Dark Chocolate
3 Eggs, room temperature and egg yolks seperated from egg whites
250ml Fresh Cream
60ml Castor Sugar

Break the chocolate block into smaller pieces. Place in a microwave safe bowl. Melt the chocolate for 1 minute and 30 seconds, mix with a spoon at every 30 second interval till melted. Set aside to completely cool down.

In a seperate bowl whip up the egg whites using an electric hand mixer till stiff peaks form, when you tilt the bowl upside down the egg whites should not fall on your head. Set aside.

Mix the egg yolks with an electric hand mixer, in another bowl. After the chocolate have cooled down, fold in the egg yolks one by one into the chocolate till well incorporated, using a spatula.

Fold in the whipped egg whites till well incorporated into the chocolate and egg mixture, using a spatula.

In a seperate bowl whip up the fresh cream, using an electric hand mixer. While mixing, add in the castor sugar. Mix until stiff peaks form. Slowly add the whipped cream to the chocolate mixture using a spatula and don’t over fold, till well incorporated.

The mousse should be light and airy. Place in the fridge to set for 3 to 4 hours, serve and enjoy!

You can scoop the chocolate mousse into glass ramekins, and let it set in the fridge, and serve it with some whipped cream for a delicious dessert.
