Introduction: Easy Chocolate Mousse
I have made this recipe a few times and it is a foolproof chocolate mousse recipe and takes no time at all. I would say that the flavour you get from the mousse is down to the flavour and quality of chocolate you choose and any alcohol that you might add in. Personal preference!
Step 1: You Will Need
Ingredients :75g chocolate (broken up), 2 eggs (separated), 25g butter (melted), 2 tbsp golden caster sugar. Optional Ingredients - 1 tbsp alcohol (Tia Maria, Kahlua, Baileys etc...)
Step 2: Make the Chocolate Mixture
Make the chocolate mixture - melt the chocolate (in a bowl in a microwave or over a simmering pan of water). Add the melted butter and egg yolks and mix together.
Step 3: Make the Egg White Mixture
Make the egg white mixture - In a clean bowl, whisk the egg whites with a hand mixer or lots of hand power! Do this until the volume has increased and the whites are holding their shape well. Add the sugar and whisk again until shiny. The mixture should be quite stiff.
Step 4: Fold Together and Finish
Finish - Combine the two mixtures together, using a metal spoon. Take care not to overwork the mix as you want to keep in as much air as possible. Combine just until you can see no more white. At this stage, you can add any alcohol. Spoon the mixture into glasses, dishes, cups, mugs, etc. Chill in the fridge for approximately 4-6 hours or overnight if you have the time. Top with cream or fruit or anything you would like and serve. This will serve 2 using a small bowl or coffee cup size.
