Chocolate Mousse - A Heavenly Treat

Sometimes you just need a little sweet treat after dinner.   

This chocolate mousse recipe is super easy to make and sure to impress.  


  • 300g quality dark chocolate roughly chopped
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 cup caster sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder
  • 300ml thickened cream plus extra whipped cream to serve
  • Grated chocolate to serve


Place the chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a pan of gently simmering water  Stir chocolate until melted. Remove bowl from heat and set aside to cool slightly.

Place eggs and sugar in a large bowl and beat with electric beaters for  approximately 5 minutes, or until mixture is pale, thick and doubled in volume. With spatula fold in cooled chocolate and cocoa powder until combined.

In a separate bowl, whip cream until thickened (be careful not to over-beat). Use a large metal spoon to carefully fold the cream into the chocolate mixture, keeping the mixture as light as possible. Spoon into 6 serving glasses and chill in fridge for at least 1 hour. Remove from fridge 15 minutes before serving,  top with extra whipped cream (optional - you may not need extra cream as this recipe is super rich) and grated chocolate to serve.  Enjoy.
