~mousse au chocolat~

This quick mousse is as delicious as the other and just as quick! In this mousse there are simply 2 ingredients – chocolate and eggs.

The quantities of chocolate and eggs can be varied depending on how many you’re making for -

For 5 little dishes use 150g chocolate (dark or milk) with 1 and 1/2 tbsps water and 3 eggs, for 10 little dishes use 300g chocolate with 3 tbsps water and 6 eggs.

How to: Break the chocolate into small pieces, melt it with the water in a clean bowl over a pan of simmering water -make sure the base of the bowl doesn’t touch the water. Leave to cool a little. Separate the eggs and whisk the egg whites in a clean bowl unitl they form stiff peaks. Add the yolks, 1 at a time to the cooled chocolate and beat together until well combined. Finally gently fold in the egg whites and divide among your serving dishes. Chill for about 3 hours before serving.

  1. My version calls for the use of butter like your other version. I have never heard of a chocolate mouse without butter. Sounds amazing!!! :-)

  2. I’ve made it a few times now and every time it’s great. Maybe it’s more French to make it without butter – this recipe came from the back of a French chocolate bar!

  3. Wow – Candy – I love this. I have a daughter who cannot tolerate any dairy. I’ll make this for her for sure.
    And by the way, I make your flourless almond orange cake all the time. SO good!
