Choctoberfest continues with another delicious chocolate recipe – classic chocolate mousse. It’s such a wonderful, delightful dessert and it is not hard to make. And seriously, what could be better than a dish of fluffy chocolate air? I have been making this mousse for quite a while I use the recipe from The Fundamental Techniques of Classic Cuisine by The French Culinary Institute (affiliate link)

Classic Chocolate Mousse

Serves 4

  • 5 oz bittersweet chocolate
  • 1 1/3 cups heavy cream
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1 oz sugar
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt

making chocolate mousse

  • Melt the chocolate in a double boiler. Remove from heat.
  • While the chocolate is melting beat the heavy cream and vanilla to soft peaks in a medium bowl.
  • In a second medium bowl whip the egg whites until foamy. Slowly add the sugar and the pinch of salt and whip to stiff peaks but don’t let them get too dry.
  • Gently fold the melted and slightly cooled chocolate into the egg whites.

How Was the Chocolate Mousse Recipe?

I swear this is like eating chocolate air. It’s really good. As I mentioned above I make this mousse quite frequently – it’s a wonderful addition to different desserts like Jelly Roll with Chocolate Mousse or Chocolate Mousse Filled Cupcakes.
