  • 200g (7 oz) good quality dark chocolate (at least 70% cocoa), chopped
  • 4 large eggs, separated
  • 50g (1/4 cup) granulated sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Optional: whipped cream and chocolate shavings for garnish


1- Melt the chocolate: Place the chopped chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over a pot of simmering water (double boiler). Stir occasionally until the chocolate is melted and smooth. Remove from heat and let it cool slightly.

2- Separate the eggs: Carefully separate the egg yolks from the whites. Place the yolks in one bowl and the whites in another bowl. Make sure there is no trace of yolk in the whites, as this can prevent them from whipping properly.

3- Beat the egg yolks: Whisk the egg yolks with half of the sugar (25g) until pale and creamy. Stir in the vanilla extract.

4- Incorporate the chocolate: Gradually pour the melted chocolate into the egg yolk mixture, stirring constantly until well combined. Set aside.

5- Whip the egg whites: Using a clean, dry whisk or electric mixer, beat the egg whites with a pinch of salt until soft peaks form. Gradually add the remaining sugar (25g) and continue beating until stiff peaks form.

6- Fold in the egg whites: Gently fold about one-third of the whipped egg whites into the chocolate mixture using a spatula until just combined. Then, carefully fold in the remaining egg whites until no streaks remain, being careful not to deflate the mixture.

7- Chill the mousse: Divide the mousse among serving glasses or bowls. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or until set.

8- Serve: Before serving, optionally garnish with a dollop of whipped cream and chocolate shavings. Enjoy the rich, creamy indulgence of classic French Mousse au Chocolat!

Note: For variations, you can experiment with different types of chocolate (milk, white) or add a splash of liqueur (such as Grand Marnier or rum) for extra flavor.
