Classic chocolate mousse recipe

Updated on November 27, 2014

This recipe can easily be doubled, it only serves about 4 people. I prefer to divide the mousse into verrines because once you scoop out a few spoons of a big bowl, the rest doesn’t look as appetizing anymore. When you divide it into individual glasses, it doesn’t need more than an hour in the fridge to set, for a big bowl allow at least 2-3 hours.



  • 3 eggs, separated
  • 4 1/2 oz. semi-sweet chocolate
  • 2 oz. butter
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  1. Melt the chocolate and butter together and stir until well combined.
  2. Separate the eggs and add the egg yolks to the chocolate mixture. Mix well (I used an electric mixer.)
  3. Whip the egg whites with the lemon juice until it becomes stiff.
  4. Fold one third of it gently into the chocolate – egg yolk mixture, then fold in the rest, careful not to deflate the egg whites. Fill into serving bowl or bowls and refrigerate.

      That is a recipe worth trying. With Cheeky Kid's comment about the holiday season it made me think you could add chocolate lacquer for the adults or coffee lacquer for a Mocha dessert.

      My only complaint is that I ended up drooling on my keyboard. :-)

      That sounds delicious and looks like it's not too hard to make.
