how to make easy chocolate mousse in minutes

As the name suggests, chocolate mousse, or mousse au chocolat, comes from France, which means chocolate foam in French. It is believed to have been first made by French chocolatiers in the 18th century. Its divine taste was soon recognised across the ocean in America, where one of their newspapers was the first to publish a recipe for it.

Mousse is a dessert that quickly became world-famous - especially after the invention of electric mixers, which made it much easier to prepare. Because chocolate mousse is such a versatile dessert, it can be used and prepared in many different ways. But the main ingredients of a real chocolate mousse - chocolate, eggs and sugar - are rarely changed in the recipe. The sweet cream version is also very popular. A drop of rum or fruit-flavoured liqueur adds a particularly nice touch.

  • 3 containers
  • electric mixer
  • spatula 
  • 8 serving glasses for the chocolate mousse   


CHOCO TIP:

  • use good quality chocolate - as chocolate mousse is made with only a few main ingredients, it is even more important to use real good quality ones. Quality is even more essential when it comes to chocolate, so it's best to use one with at least 70% cocoa, which will ensure a really rich dessert flavour.
  • the eggs should be fresh and at room temperature - the chocolate mousse will go smoothly if you take the eggs out of the fridge at least 30 minutes beforehand. Cold eggs can harden the melted chocolate and change the texture of the chocolate mousse.
  • choose a heavy cream with the highest percentage of milk fat possible - this will keep the chocolate mousse in a more stable form even after a longer time.


So remember that a chocolate mousse can only be as delicious as its main ingredient, chocolate. So make sure you use only the highest quality. Bon Appetit!

Ingredients:

Instructions:

1. Step Melt the chocolate in a water bath by placing a smaller bowl in a larger saucepan filled with water. Put the chocolate in the smaller bowl. Heat the water over a medium heat until the chocolate is melted into a smooth mixture. Then remove the saucepan from the heat and cool the chocolate.
2. Step Separate the yolks from the whites. In a separate bowl, whisk the egg whites with the sugar and add the cocoa and rum. Stir gently to combine. Then, in another bowl, whisk the egg whites until stiff and creamy.
3. Step In a third bowl, whip the sweet cream until stiff.
4. Step Gradually add the melted chocolate and whipped cream to the bowl with the whisked egg yolks. Mix well with an electric mixer, then gently fold in the egg whites.
5. Step Carefully fill the chocolate mousse into small glasses and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or until the mousse has set.
6. Step You can also spice up the dessert with fruit or whipped cream and colourful sprinkles. Alternatively, you can add crushed biscuits and hazelnuts.
