Chocolate Mousse

Chocolate mousse is a luscious and rich chocolate dessert that melts in your mouth. It truly is a top dessert to make, easy, and a number one choice.


  • 4 oz/ 2/3 cup pure chocolate chips or cocoa solids
  • 2 eggs (separated)
  • 1 tablespoon of brandy
  • 2 heaped teaspoons of whipped cream
  • A small amount of grated dark chocolate


  1. Carefully melt the chocolate in a bowl over a gently bubbling pan of hot water for a maximum of three minutes OR a double boiler OR microwave in 20-second intervals until almost completely melted and then stir until completely melted. (Be careful, I have burnt chocolate in the microwave more than once.)
  2. Remove from the heat when it is smooth and liquid when using either of the first two methods.
  3. Beat the egg yolks into the chocolate whilst still hot, and then leave to cool for approximately 15 minutes.
  4. Now beat the egg whites, not too stiffly (into soft peaks), and fold into the mixture.
  5. Spoon the mixture into two stemmed wine glasses, cover with cling film and leave to chill for two hours. The mixture then becomes firm.
  6. Before serving, pierce the surface of each mousse and allow the brandy to soak into the surface.
  7. Top with a blob of the whipped cream and sprinkle with the grated chocolate.
  8. Dip your spoon into heaven!
