Rich Chocolate Mousse (serves 8-10)

I made this delicious chocolate mousse for my birthday party this weekend and it turned out a treat. it’s a variation on the orange and chocolate mousse I did a while back, just leaving out the orange rind.


  • 600g good quality belgian chocolate
  • 9 eggs whites, 9 egg yolks
  • 6 Tbs caster sugar
  • 6 Tbs milk

1. Beat eggs whites using an electric mixer until soft peaks form.

2. Add caster sugar and beat until stiff peaks form.

3. Chop or grate the chocolate and melt it over a double boiler.


4. When the chocolate has melted, remove the top bowl from the heat and beat in the 3 egg yolks, then add the milk and stir.


5. Pour the stiff egg whites over the melted chocolate mixture and fold in.

6. Refrigerate for about 2 hours until set.

7. Top with scraped bits of chocolate.

  1. Great looking mousse and recipe! I wonder if I could try using soy milk in this recipe to make it dairy free.. Its one of the few mousse recipes I’ve seen using milk instead of cream which must make it a great lower fat alternative – nice one!
