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...)  
will this work with regular sugar?
Normal caster sugar would be fine, the difference between the two is minimal and any taste difference is most likely masked by the chocolate flavour. I would steer clear of granulated sugar though, as I don't think it will dissolve properly and you may be left with a gritty mousse. If you try it though and find otherwise, let me know!
My suggestion would be gently whisk the egg whites and sugar on a double boiler until the grit of the sugar is gone. After that just whip it until it holds. But personally I like to use heavy whipping cream to fold into the chocolate mixture.
You never mention what to do with the butter. Is it needed for this recipie?
Oh gosh, i'm so sorry! I have updated it. It gets mixed in with the melted chocolate and egg yolks. Thank you for drawing my attention to it.
