Chocolate Mousse Delight |

I don’t think I need to go on about how timeless  and classic this dessert is! It suits all occasions be it a PMS crisis, a romantic dinner or a family lunch. We can easily spot a chocolate mousse as the elected dessert. Maybe that’s why we see so many versions of this recipe out there and I have tried myself, many, many of them. And one by one, they failed to reach the greatness and of this simple recipe I came across.

Because in all honesty this is as simple as it can get. So leave all the big recipes list aside and come give this one a try. I’m sure this one won’t let you down.


  • 200g dark chocolate (70 – 75%)
  • 3 large eggs, separated
  • 40g caster sugar


  1. Place the broken chocolate on a large heatproof bowl, placed over a saucepan of barely simmering water, making sure the bowl doesn’t touch the water.
  2. Keep the heat at its lowest, allowing the chocolate to melt slowly. Now remove it from the heat and give it a good stir until it’s smooth and glossy, then let the chocolate cool for 2-3 minutes.
  3. Stir in the egg yolks then give it another good mix
  4.  Next, in a clean bowl, whisk the egg whites to the soft-peak stage, then whisking in the sugar about a third at a time until the whites are glossy.
  5. Fold a tablespoon of the egg whites into the chocolate mixture gently mixing it, then carefully fold in the rest. You need to have patience here – it needs gentle folding and cutting movements so that you retain all the precious air, which makes the mousse light.
  6. Next divide the mousse between the ramekins* or glasses* and chill for at least 2 hours, covered with clingfilm.

It serves 6 individual glasses/ramekins
