Chocolate Mousse

Bittersweet chocolate mousse may be the standard, but try it with milk or white chocolate for delicious variations.

Yield: Makes 6 servings

  • 3½ oz (100g) bittersweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1 tbsp whole milk
  • 2 large eggs, separated
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • Grated chocolate or chocolate curls, to decorate






1. Combine the chocolate and milk in a heatproof bowl and place over a saucepan of simmering water. Heat, stirring often, until the chocolate melts. Remove from the heat and let cool slightly.

2. Whisk the egg yolks and sugar in a large bowl until thick and creamy. Whisk in the chocolate mixture.

3. Whip the cream in a bowl until stiff peaks form. Add the chocolate mixture and fold together just until combine. Using clean beaters, whip the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Stir some of the whites into the chocolate mixture, then fold in the rest.

4. Spoon into individual dishes. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours, until chilled. Garnish with grated chocolate and serve chilled.


Light Chocolate Mousse

For a sweeter and lighter taste, make the mousse with 50 percent dark chocolate or milk chocolate. Top with shavings or curls of white chocolate.


Good with biscotti, shortbread, or a little whipped cream.
