Chocolate Mousse is a “to-die-for French dessert” which has occupied a very special place in almost every American restaurant now. Chocolate Mousse is amazingly light, soft, fluffy, and airy in texture and absolutely delicious in taste.
There are so many variations of Chocolate Mousse recipe and they all are truly amazing in taste. I have been looking for a tried and tested recipe for Chocolate Mousse with no fancy ingredients and raw eggs as I can’t stand the smell or taste of a raw egg, AT LL! Though to be frank, I have never felt any smell or taste of raw egg at any restaurant’s Chocolate Mousse but I was a bit skeptical about trying that recipe at home. So, to be on the safer side I tried Eggless Chocolate Mousse and trust me, just like any other Mousse recipe this too came out pretty well, fluffy and with nice airy texture.
Traditionally mousse was made using fine quality dark chocolate and also it tastes best when dark chocolate is used while making this. Feel free to use dark/ semi-sweet/ or milk chocolate or a mix of both. I have used 3:1 ratio of dark and milk chocolate as I like the mousse to be on a bit sweeter side. I have used heavy whipping cream in my recipe but many recipes call for heavy cream too.
You need only a handful of ingredients and you are all set to prepare this super easy dessert. No fancy ingredients have been used while making this still it can easily please a crowd with its fancy look. <3 This dessert can be made ahead of time so, the next time you are hosting a house party make this dessert beforehand and serve to your friends and guests.
Eat this Chocolate Mousse as it is or layer it on a cake, ice-cream cake, or brownies cake. This classic French dessert is so versatile that you can use this in your dessert recipes. Do share your ideas of using this Chocolate Mousse other than just eating it as it. 😀
- 2 Cups heavy whipping cream
- 1 Cup Nestle Dark Chocolate Morsels
- 1/3rd Cup milk chocolate morsels
- 1 Tsp Vanilla extract
- 1 Tbsp granulated sugar (optional)
Note- you can use only dark chocolate morsels. I prefer my mousse to be a bit on the sweeter side that’s why I have used the combination of dark and milk chocolate morsels
