Chocolate Mousse

What You Need:

-Dark or Semi-Sweet Chocolate -Heavy Whipping Cream -Egg Whites -Powdered Sugar


Bring a pot of water to a boil and take it off the heat. Add chopped chocolate to a clean, dry bowl and place it in the pan. Leave the bowl in the water for a few minutes, then stir the chocolate until smooth and silky.

Melt Chocolate


Beat the heavy cream on medium speed until it forms soft peaks. When you take the beater out of the bowl, the tips of the whipped cream will look like an upside-down J.

Beat Cream


Whip the egg whites on medium speed to soft peaks. Add the sugar and continue beating until stiff peaks form. Stiff peaks will stand straight up and remain that way when you remove the beater from the bowl.

Whip Egg Whites


Gently fold the egg whites into the chocolate in thirds until no white streaks remain. Do not stir.

Fold In Egg Whites


When the whites are thoroughly mixed in, fold in the whipped cream in thirds. There should be no white streaks. Leave the mousse in the bowl or scoop it into serving dishes. Cover and refrigerate for an hour. 

Fold In Whipped Cream


Garnish with sweetened whipped cream, raspberries, mint, or shaved chocolate. Enjoy the oohs and aahs you’ll get when you put this beauty on the table!
