Simple to make.
- Melt the chocolate chips and butter over low heat, stir until smooth. Whisk chocolate mixture in the egg yolks until combined and then pour back in with the remaining chocolate mixture.
- Beat your whipped cream and sugar until soft peaks form and then fold in the cooled chocolate mixture to the whipped cream.
- At this point you will still probably have bits of chocolate you can’t get mixed in, so I will use my stand mixer again with the whisk attachment, and mix on medium speed until mixture is smooth.
- Divide evenly among serving dishes and garnish with some whipped cream.
Here is what you will need for this chocolate mousse.
- semisweet chocolate chips
- egg yolks
- whipping cream
The best dishes for chocolate mousse.
This chocolate mousse can be chilled and served in really any kind of any individual-sized dishes, cups, small mason jars, ramekins, etc.
Plan ahead so this dessert can chill.
This chocolate mousse is best if chilled at least 8 hours or up to 24 hours before serving. This makes it the perfect make-ahead dessert.
How to Serve Chocolate Mousse.
While chocolate mousse is just fine all on its own, you can fancy it up by adding a dollop of whipped cream to each dish before serving and some fresh raspberries or chocolate shaving (or both).Print
