Chocolate Mousse

This classic chocolate mousse may become the ultimate dessert for dinner parties this summer. This mousse is light, smooth and frothy.

Mmmm… there’s something about this French chocolate dessert. I don’t know if it’s the taste or the texture, or the combination of both, but it always leaves me wanting more. When I finish my portion, I’m satisfied but … I can’t help but look at the others to see if they finish it or need a little help!!

Few desserts leave me with this feeling, so I launch a warning to navigators: this dessert can become addictive!

If you’ve made more recipes from this blog, you’ll know about my passion for sweet treats and, above all, for chocolate.

Here are some other chocolate desserts to encourage you to try, if you haven’t already!

Will you be able to resist the magic of its texture and intense chocolate flavor?

Once you have made this chocolate mousse, you will feel like the chef of any French restaurant in the heart of Paris.

As you savor the mousse, and notice how it melts on your palate, the intensity of the chocolate will conquer your senses and (possibly) take your imagination to visit magical places such as la tour Eiffel or the pedestrian streets of the French capital.

Last summer was another mousse the star dessert on the blog. It was a success because of its simplicity and creaminess. It is another type of mousse with a different texture made with condensed milk.

Therefore, I thought it would be a good idea to propose chocolate mousse as this summer’s dessert.

Although chocolate mousse is a dessert that is eaten throughout the year, this time we are going to put it in the freezer for 60 minutes so that it has a refreshing touch, without losing the intensity of the chocolate.

How to Make Chocolate Mousse

This delicious chocolate dessert is made with only 4 ingredients, so it is important that they are of high quality and at room temperature.

  • Dark chocolate
  • Butter at room temperature
  • Eggs at room temperature
  • Sugar

1. In a bowl, add 200 grams of dark chocolate and 40 grams of butter, both in small pieces, and melt in a bain-marie or in the microwave for 1 minute. If there are any lumps in the mixture, stir with a wooden spoon to dissolve them. Chocolate can burn in the microwave, so it is best not to overdo it and just stir until the chocolate and butter small pieces are dissolved. Let the mixture sit cool at room temperature.

2. Separate the egg whites from the yolks. Remember that eggs (2) must be at room temperature.

3. In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff with a hand held mixer. Add in one teaspoon of sugar at the end until dissolved.

4. Add the 2 egg yolks to the chocolate, which is already at room temperature, one by one. Stir with a wooden spoon until the yolk is dissolved and well combined. You shouldn´t see any trace of yolk.

This next step is very important to create the texture of the chocolate mousse. .

5. Add the meringue to the chocolate in 3 phases. In the first phase, add 1/3 of the meringue and stir quickly with the wooden spoon until combined. Once integrated, add in another third of meringue and stir more slowly until combined. Then, carefully add the remaining meringue and combine both mixtures with slow folding movements, a bottom-to-top and top-to-bottom motion, until well integrated.

6. Pour the mixture into small glasses, cover them with cling film and put them to chill in the freezer for 1 hour.

7. Take them out of the freezer and sprinkle chocolate on top to decorate and give a crunchy touch to the dessert. Et voilà! You have made a delicious chocolate mousse.
