Chocolate mousse recipe

A delicious dessert with just four ingredients!

Serves4
Preparation20 Mins
Cooking Time10 Mins

This is the lightest, most delicious chocolate mousse I have ever tasted; it melts in the mouth but is so cheap to make. With only four ingredients, you can't get a much more simple yet satisfying dessert plus there's very little sugar. Such is the genius of Maman Blanc! For an interesting variation, this mousse can be baked in ramekins in a pre-heated oven at 200°C for 3 minutes and served warm.

Cooking Method

Chef tips

"If you're using a chocolate with a higher cocoa solid content you may need to add more sugar to the mousse. Always taste your ingredients before you start."

Voila!
