This is quite a rich chocolate mousse, considering that we recommend you use ‘standard’ chocolate and not 70% or more chocolate, as standard tends to mix better and not be so cloying.

Chocolate Mousse Recipe – Tips

  • Top with raspberries, grated chocolate or crumbled Amaretti biscuits for more texture.
  • Add a little orange juice to the chocolate mix as you are going along, or even a dash of liquer for adults! (Tia Maria works well, or Cointreau for the orangey flavour)
  • Not suitable for pregnant women due to raw egg
