Mousse au Chocolat

Who doesn’t love chocolate mousse? It’s light and fluffy and, best of all, it’s so delightfully chocolatey! This is a traditional French recipe, which only calls for three ingredients - chocolate, sugar and eggs. Easy!

Mousse au Chocolat

125g dark chocolate
6 eggs, separated
6 tablespoons caster sugar

1. Break up the chocolate and melt over low-heat in a bowl over a saucepan of simmering water.Set aside to cool for a bit.
2. In a clean metal bowl, use an electric beater to whisk the egg whites until stiff peaks form.
3. In a separate bowl, lightly mix together the egg yolks, sugar and melted chocolate.
4. With a clean metal spoon, gently fold the egg whites into the chocolate mixture.
5. Spoon the mixture into small bowls and cover with some clingfilm.
6. Leave to set in the fridge for at least 24 hours.
7. Serve with raspberries and shavings of dark chocolate if you wish.
