3 Ingredient Chocolate Mousse | chefsavvy.com #recipe #dessert #chocolate #mousse Chocolate mousse is not as intimidating as it seems. There are a couple important steps to follow when making this mousse. You must temper your eggs before adding in the warm milk. This prevents us from having scrambled eggs. Also make sure to gently fold the whipped cream into the chocolate mixture. This helps to keep the mousse light and airy.

I used semi-sweet chocolate squares for this recipe. Dark chocolate would also work great just make sure to use a good quality chocolate.

There is no added sugar in this recipe just egg yolks, chocolate and cream. That’s it.

3 Ingredient Chocolate Mousse | chefsavvy.com #recipe #dessert #chocolate #mousse To make the chocolate mousse whisk egg yolks on the highest speed until they thicken. Meanwhile, heat 1/2 of the heavy cream in a saucepan. Add a splash of the warm milk to the egg mixture and stir gently. (We are shocking the eggs so they do not scramble). Next add the egg mixture with the rest of the milk into the sauce pan and cook until thick. Add in chocolate and stir until melted. Whip the remaining heavy cream and fold into the chocolate mixture. Refrigerate for 2-3 hours to set.

This recipe makes about 2-4 servings. For me it’s more like 2. This stuff is addicting!

Whipped Cream, optional

  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 teaspoons sugar

Instructions

  2. Meanwhile, heat ½ cup heavy cream in a medium saucepan. Do not boil just warm up the milk.
  3. Add a splash of the warm milk to the egg mixture and stir gently. We are shocking the eggs so they do not get too hot and scramble.

  5. Cook mixture until thickened, 2 minutes, stir constantly.
  6. Add in chocolate and stir until melted and take off of the heat.
