Velvety Chocolate Mousse

Posted by Carole

Pleasure is good for the mood and the body and we should allow ourselves to enjoy things we like on regular basis even if it’s a yummy dessert that is not necessarily good for our figure. Can you imagine a life where you only eat chia seeds, salad and an apple for desert? I personally can’t and don’t even want to! So today I’ll give you a recipe for one dreamy chocolatey dessert: a Chocolate Mousse, which has nothing to do with a buy-it-ready mousse!

Indeed, if you’re going to indulge in a dessert you’d better prepare it yourself and here’s why

  1. There will only be natural ingredients in your recipe making it a much healthier option
  2. You’ll be able to control the amount of fat and sugar in your preparation
  3. You’ll feel proud about yourself and will make your entourage happy and grateful
  4. Last but not least, your dessert will taste so much better, I guarantee you that!

I also need to add that this chocolate mousse is a very easy and quick dessert to prepare (15 minutes max), like any other recipes suggested on this blog because we’re all about enjoyment and pleasure!

Ingredients for 4 portions

  • 75 g of dark chocolate
  • 75 g of caster sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • A pinch of salt
  1. Heat a pan on low heat and add the chocolate and 2 table spoons of water. Stir with a wooden spoon until the chocolate is melted and smooth then remove from the heat.
  2. Separate the egg yolks and egg whites and reserve.
  3. Add the egg yolks one by one to the melted chocolate and keep whisking until the preparation is smooth and velvety.
  4. In a large bowl add a pinch of salt to the egg whites and whisk until they form stiff peaks.
  5. When the egg whites are very firm, add the sugar and gently blend then add the chocolate and mix carefully to keep the firmness of the whisked egg whites intact.
  6. Place in the refrigerator before eating as the mousse is best served cold!

Tip: Use a syphon to give a cloud-like texture to your mousse or serve as is if you enjoy your mousse creamy and unctuous.

Tip 2: Add half of shot of expresso to your preparation to enhance the chocolatey flavor or the zest of an orange for a fruity kick!
