For the chocolate mousse:

  • 8 oz. semisweet chocolate, chopped
  • 3 tbsp. unsalted butter
  • 3 large eggs, separated
  • 2 tbsp. granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 tsp. salt

For the whipped cream:

  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tbsp. granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract


  1. In a medium saucepan, melt the chopped chocolate and butter over low heat, stirring constantly until smooth. Remove from heat and let cool slightly.
  2. In a large bowl, beat the egg yolks and sugar with an electric mixer until thick and pale, about 3-4 minutes.
  3. In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites with an electric mixer until soft peaks form.
  4. In a small saucepan, heat the heavy cream over low heat until it just starts to simmer. Remove from heat and stir in the melted chocolate mixture.
  5. Gradually pour the chocolate mixture into the egg yolk mixture, stirring until well combined.
  6. Using a rubber spatula, gently fold in the beaten egg whites until just incorporated.
  7. Divide the chocolate mousse into four serving glasses or ramekins and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, or until set.
  8. To make the whipped cream, beat the heavy cream, sugar, and vanilla extract with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form.
  9. Serve the chocolate mousse with a dollop of whipped cream on top.


  • Make sure to beat the egg whites until soft peaks form, but not too stiff or the mousse will be too dense.
  • You can also add a splash of liqueur, such as Grand Marnier or Kahlua, to the chocolate mixture for extra flavor.
  • Garnish with shaved chocolate, cocoa powder, or fresh berries for a beautiful presentation.
