Easy-Peasy Chocolate Mousse!

img_9040
Today, my Nana and I made some chocolate mousses for her to serve as a pudding when she has guests round for dinner.

I’ve never made chocolate mousse before, and it was so much simpler than I thought it would be.

We served them in little teacups instead of ordinary dessert dishes to make them look a bit cuter!

I’ve listed the recipe below:

You will
need:
175g of chocolate
5 egg whites and 2 egg yolks
55g of caster sugar
150ml of double cream, lightly whipped.

1. Break up and melt 150g of chocolate.img_9030 2. Whisk egg whites with sugar until a meringue mixture is formed.img_9042
3. Once the chocolate mixture has cooled, add two egg yolks and stir through. img_9034
4. Slowly add the meringue mixture to the chocolate mixture and fold in gently. At this point, we also added some cocoa powder to make it extra chocolaty!img_9036
5. Fold in half of the whipped cream and save the other half for a topping.img_9037
6. Spoon the mixture into serving bowls (we used tea cups) and leave to set in the fridge for 2-3 hours. img_9041
7. To serve, add remaining cream as a topping and grate chocolate over the top.
(Unfortunately, I wasn’t there to see this part so I couldn’t get any photos!)
