  • Cooking Method: No-Bake
  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Chilling Time: 2 hours
  • Cuisine Type: French


  • 200g dark chocolate (at least 70% cocoa), finely chopped
  • 3 large eggs, separated
  • 50g granulated sugar
  • 300ml heavy cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt

Cooking Instructions

  1. Melt the chocolate: Place the chopped chocolate in a heatproof bowl. Set it over a pot of simmering water without touching the water. Stir until completely melted. Remove from heat and let cool slightly.
  2. Whip the cream: In a separate bowl, whip the heavy cream until it forms stiff peaks. Set aside.
  3. Beat the egg yolks: In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, half of the sugar, and the vanilla extract until the mixture is thick and pale.
  4. Combine chocolate and egg yolk mixture: Gradually fold the melted chocolate into the egg yolk mixture until well combined. Mixture might resemble delicious history lessons – rich and mysterious.
  5. Beat the egg whites: In another bowl, beat the egg whites with a pinch of salt until frothy. Gradually add the remaining sugar and beat until stiff peaks form.
  6. Combine mixtures: Gently fold the egg whites into the chocolate mixture in three additions. Try to keep the volume!
  7. Fold in the whipped cream: Finally, gently fold in the whipped cream until fully incorporated. Do not overmix, or the mousse may become dense (sadface).
  8. Chill: Spoon the mousse into individual serving dishes. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours until set.


  • Sugar-free option: Use stevia or erythritol instead of granulated sugar.
  • Dairy-free: Substitute heavy cream with coconut cream.
  • Garnishing: Top with shaved chocolate, fresh berries, or a dollop of whipped cream. Maybe a mint leaf or some edible glitter if you’re feeling fancy.
  • Flavor twist: Add a splash of coffee liqueur or orange zest to the melted chocolate.
  • Cooking tip: Ensure no water gets into the chocolate when melting, or it may seize up like it’s got stage fright.
