Chocolate Mousse 2 Ingredients (Serves Two):
- 2 eggs
- 60g (2oz) chocolate with 60% cocoa
Chocolate mousse kitchenware
- electric mixer
- bain marie pan
Separate egg yolks from the white.
Melt the chocolate “au bain marie” i.e. in the bain marie pan.
Melting the chocolate using “bain marie” is the best way! If you don’t have a proper double boiler cup, use two pans, the first one contains water and the second one that contains the chocolate is placed on top of it. Put them on the stove with medium fire. Turn the fire low when the water boils.
Pour the melted chocolate on the egg yolks and stir at the same time.
Beat the egg white.
Add a pinch of salt to the egg white before you beat them, it helps.
Add it carefully to the previous mix, step by step.
Put the mix into dessert cups and leave them in the fridge for minimum 2 hours. You can make the chocolate mousse one day before and leave the cups overnight in your fridge.
Voilà, ready to dig in! Please feel free to leave comments below if you have any chocolate mousse-related questions.
If you’ve done this recipe a couple of times already and you want to experience something new, here are some suggestions. To get an even better mouth feel, add a tablespoon of cream at the end of step 2, just before putting the mix in the dessert cups. To have a different taste you can also add 2 or 3 drops of coffee extract to the melted chocolate.
