Mom’s famous chocolate mousse + video!

This recipe is from ย my mother. She has had a lot of success with it, for more than 25 years! Whenever there was a dinner party @ my parent’s house, there was the famous chocolate mousse! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Ooh yes! MMM!

I love this recipe because, it is utterly delicious, you can prepare it beforehand & it is so easy to make too. I am lactose-intelorant & there isย NO CREAMย in it! It is a little bit lighter, but has a lot of flavour! The sweetness is just right, it melts into the mouth! Itย doesn’t have EGG YOLKSย either,ย that can make the mousse a bit heavier. You can serve this with some seasonal fruit on top, if you want, but the dessert itself doesn’t need it. ๐Ÿ™‚

For 4 persons


3 egg whites, (use the 3 egg yolks for a fancy omelet, I did! ๐Ÿ™‚

100 gr. dark chocolate, at least 72%.

3 levelled tablespoons of fine white sugar (44 gr)


1. Break chocolate into smaller pieces & place into a metallic bowl & put this onto a pot of boiling water. Fill the pot with a thin layer of water. The water mustn’t touch the metallic bowl. this is called: au bain mari. Stir & let the chocolate melt completely.

2. Put egg whites in bowl of your Kenwood Major & whisk egg whites until stiff. You know when they are ready when you can put the stiff egg whites in the bowl upside down! It took me 1 minute on full-speed, that is speed 6 on my Kenwood major. Turn machine back on & add sugar gradually.ย Whisk again until the sugar is all mixed in. This only took the machine 30 seconds. This is my lovely Kenwood Major:

4. When the chocolate has been melted, turn heat off. Add spoonfuls of the melted chocolate to the egg whites. Fold gently together with a metallic spoon because you don’t want to push out the air that you have gathered! See that everything is well mixed, also on the sides & bottom of your big bowl.

5. Spoon into lovely ramekins & put into the fridge for a few hours to stiff up.

Enjoy, sweeties! xxxย
