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. 2. Whisk egg whites with sugar until a meringue mixture is formed.
3. Once the chocolate mixture has cooled, add two egg yolks and stir through.
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!
5. Fold in half of the whipped cream and save the other half for a topping.
6. Spoon the mixture into serving bowls (we used tea cups) and leave to set in the fridge for 2-3 hours.
7. To serve, add remaining cream as a topping and grate chocolate over the top.
