The best chocolate mousse you will ever taste

Chocolate Mousse | French By Design

I made my chocolate mousse yesterday for the gang and it had been so long since I had prepared it, I had forgotten how yummy it was, and how easy it was to prepare. So naturally, I grabbed the camera and shot the mousse before it was devoured.

  • Melt the chocolate, and separate the egg whites from the egg yolks.
  • Add the egg yolks to the melted chocolate – If you chose unsweetened chocolate, add a couple of teaspoons of sugar.
  • Beat the egg whites until fluffy.
  • Put the egg whites with the chocolate mixture and mix well.
  • Refrigerate for 2 to 3 hours and serve.

  1. This looks amazing!
    Being dairy free & gluten free it has been many years since I have eaten chocolate mousse-a great favorite of mine.
    My only concern is that the eggs are raw & the possibility of salmonella. Is the chocolate hot enough to coddle them when added?
    Or am I reading the recipe wrong?

    1. I think it’s a fundamental cultural difference between Europeans and Americans when it comes to food. We, French people, consume raw food and raw eggs in many recipes, whether it’s in a chocolate mousse or a steak tartare, where the meat is consumed raw with a raw egg on it! Many of my American friends would never even try something that is raw, whereas my European friends think that Americans are a little too obsessed with germs to the point of constant paranoia. But yes, you read the recipe correctly, Cristine. Xx-
