If you want a delicious, pretty simple, cheap dessert then you can’t go far wrong with a chocolate mousse, or as the French call it, une mousse au chocolat. It’s not a recipe you’ll want to turn to when trying to lose excess weight, but it is a fab feel-good one, which makes it perfect for the miserable months of winter.
For the first time I’m linking a sweet dish up to Tasty Tuesdays and Recipe of the Week, pop on over to see what other bloggers are making this week:
- Whisk the egg whites with a pinch of salt and the sugar
- Melt the chocolate with the water
- Fold the egg whites into the melted chocolate
- Leave in the fridge for at least 4 hours (preferably overnight)
Put your saucepan onto a medium heat. Get all your ingredients ready.
Separate the egg yolks from the whites (you don't need the yolks for this recipe), then whisk the egg whites with a pinch of salt and the sugar. Melt the chocolate with the water in the saucepan over a medium heat.
Fold the egg whites into the melted chocolate, this is the same technique we used for the "Chocolate cake to die for".
Put in the fridge for at least 4 hours or overnight preferably, and then it's time for Chocolate mousse heaven!
Don't forget, if you like this recipe please share it! We'd love it if you came back and shared your comments, thoughts, and rating on this dish once you've cooked it. Bon appétit!
