Chocolate Mousse

Pin It
If you are looking for simple and quick to prepare ahead, this is it. It takes about 15 minutes to prepare and let it chill in the refrigerator while you are cooking your dinner.

 Pin It


  • 5 1/4 ounces bittersweet chocolate
  • 1 cup cold heavy cream
  • 3 large egg whites
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • Sweetened whipped cream, for garnish, optional

Place chocolate in a large bowl set over in a double boiler at a low simmer. Stir chocolate until melted. Turn off the heat and let stand.

Beat the heavy cream until it forms soft peaks. Set aside and hold at room temperature. With a mixer, whip egg to soft peaks. Gradually add the sugar and continue whipping until firm.

Remove the chocolate from the double broiler and using a whisk, fold in the egg whites all at once. When the whites are almost completely incorporated, fold in the cold cream. Cover the mousse and refrigerate until set.
Serve with whipped cream, if desired.
My daughter decided to decorate by layering it with whipped cream:)!

I hope you enjoy this recipe!
