Chocolate Mousse ( Quick )

Published Tuesday, 06 November, 2012 by Stu

A great mousse



  • Ingredients
  • 100g chocolate
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 50g caster sugar
  • 6 egg whites



1. Melt the chocolate in a bowl over simmering water, then set the bowl aside and

let the chocolate cool a little.

2. Whisk together the egg yolks and 40g of the sugar for a few minutes until

the mixture thickens, becoming pale and fluffy. Pour in the cooled chocolate

and fold together gently.

3. Whisk the egg whites in a large clean bowl until they are stiff,

but not dry. Add the sugar and beat until the mixture becomes glossy.

4. Spoon a third of the egg whites into the chocolate mixture and stir together -

you don't want any flecks of white. Gently fold in the remaining whites, then

pour into a serving bowl. Chill in the fridge overnight to set.

decorate with chocolate shavings before serving.
