This chocolate mousse recipe is super easy to make and sure to impress.
- 300g quality dark chocolate roughly chopped
- 3 eggs
- 1/4 cup caster sugar
- 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder
- 300ml thickened cream plus extra whipped cream to serve
- Grated chocolate to serve
Place the chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a pan of gently simmering water Stir chocolate until melted. Remove bowl from heat and set aside to cool slightly.
Place eggs and sugar in a large bowl and beat with electric beaters for approximately 5 minutes, or until mixture is pale, thick and doubled in volume. With spatula fold in cooled chocolate and cocoa powder until combined.
In a separate bowl, whip cream until thickened (be careful not to over-beat). Use a large metal spoon to carefully fold the cream into the chocolate mixture, keeping the mixture as light as possible. Spoon into 6 serving glasses and chill in fridge for at least 1 hour. Remove from fridge 15 minutes before serving, top with extra whipped cream (optional - you may not need extra cream as this recipe is super rich) and grated chocolate to serve. Enjoy.
