Chocolate Mousse

This delicious Chocolate Mousse has a rich chocolate flavor and is light and airy with a velvety smooth texture.


Serves 4

  • 100 ml (1/2 cup) half and half cream 

  • 400g (14 oz) bitter chocolate

  • 6 eggs 

  • 2 Tbsp superfine sugar

For the Topping

  • whipped cream

  • mini chocolate chips


1. Bring the cream to a boil. ​At the same time, melt the chocolate in a water bath. Add the cream to the melted chocolate and remove from heat. 


​2. Separate the egg whites and yolks, keeping just 2 yolks. Whisk the egg whites into stiff peaks with the sugar, combining the 2 yolks at the end.

3. Pour a quarter of the mixture into the chocolate and cream. Whisk. Add the rest of the egg whites and fold in carefully.


​4. Pour the mousse into individual glasses and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.
