I don’t know anyone that doesn’t like a creamy luscious chocolate mousse for dessert! But many of the recipes for chocolate mousse are too rich and too sweet because of heavy cream and added sugar. That’s not the case here! There is no cream and no sugar in this recipe, except for the sugar in the dark chocolate. Not only that, but it requires only 3 ingredients and takes only 15 – 20 minutes to prepare. The rest of the work to set it is done by your refrigerator. It is a wonderful “make ahead” dessert that can be “dressed up” for the holidays and sure to put smiles on their faces 🙂
- 200 grams dark chocolate
- 6 free range large eggs, yolk and whites separated
- 1 tsp pure vanilla
- Raspberries/pomegranate seeds to serve (optional)
Melt the chocolate on low heat in a double boiler with water at the bottom.
Beat lightly the egg yolks, then pour into the melted chocolate after it has cooled slightly: whisk quickly until smooth. Transfer to a larger bowl.
Ad 1 tsp of vanilla.
Beat the egg whites until stiff (4 - 5 minutes).
Stir in some of the whipped egg whites into the chocolate to soften it, then fold the rest of the egg whites until perfectly blended.
Spoon the mousse into 4 dessert cups and refrigerate for at least 2 hours to set.
Dress it up with your choice of fresh fruit or other toppings after it has set.
