French Chocolate Mousse

Our French Chocolate Mousse recipe is rich and decadent, you only need a small portion of this classic dessert. It contains raw eggs so should not be served to the very young, old or pregnant.

For this mousse we need soft peaks from the egg whites. We've included some visual pointers in the video below to show you how it's done.

To serve, decorate with chocolate decorations of your choice and lightly whipped cream.

Method

  1. Melt chocolate in a bowl over (but not touching) a pan of gently simmering water (or melt in a microwave) then set aside to cool slightly.

  2. Whisk together the egg yolks with the chocolate extract, brandy or Cointreau before beating in the chocolate.

  3. In a clean bowl, whisk the egg whites until soft peaks form, then fold through the chocolate mixture until evenly combined. Spoon into individual glasses, ramekins or cappuccino cups and chill for at least 1 hour.

  4. To decorate; lightly whip the cream until it just holds its shape, spoon a little onto each dessert and sprinkle with the chocolate decorations.
