2 ingredients chocolate mousse
Super easy 2 ingredients recipe. Simply follow the steps which are very detailed to help you make the best version this French classic. If you want to add something, here is a list of things which may enhance this recipe: - often in France we add a pinch of salt in the egg white before beating, it gives a richer taste. - add 1 tsp of instant coffee to the chocolate before heating, it gives it a deep strong taste. - add orange zest and a dash of Cointreau or Grand-Marnier for a Jaffa feel. - sprinkle choc chips on top before putting in the fridge.
Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: French
  • 1 bar dark chocolate. The exact amount it irrelevant, usually between 180 to 220g.
  • 6 eggs at room temperature.
  1. Melt chocolate in a bain-marie or in the microwave making sure to use a microwavable bowl. Cut bar in squares, start with 30 seconds, don't stir, just press down with your fingers to push the melting chocolate down. Add 30 seconds after 30 seconds until you get half the chocolate melted. Take the bowl out and stir with a wooden or silicon spoon (avoid the very cold metal spoon). The heat of the melted chocolate should help melt the remaining squares, if not, only add 10 seconds per 10 seconds. Take the time to stir, it will melt :) and because you are using residual heat, you won't dry up your chocolate or over-heat it. Don't add water, the temperature shock and chemical shock will solidify you chocolate.
  2. When all melted, let chocolate cool down a little. It should be warm-ish.
  3. Separate egg whites and yolks.
  4. Whisk chocolate and yolks.
  5. Using any device, beat egg white until they form SOFT peak. Be careful not to over-beat them.
  6. Using a wooden spoon or a spatula, tip ⅓ of beaten egg whites in the choc+yolk mixture. Stir with a circular motion scraping the bottom, bringing the chocolate over the egg whites. Keep going slowly and delicately until well mixed but please don't over-stir. You will end up with a mousse which will have lost most of its air.
  7. Tip in a nice serving dish which fits in your fridge and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
