How To Make Chocolate Mousse
To make chocolate mousse, you need four ingredients: heavy cream, chocolate chips (or baking chocolate), sugar, and eggs.
Start by heating heavy cream and chocolate chips in a saucepan over medium-low heat. You’ll want to stir it constantly so that the milk does not scald.
Once the chocolate chips have melted, turn the burner off and set the pan to the side.
Next, it is time to beat eggs and sugar. Do this on medium speed for about 3 minutes.
Now slowly add some melted chocolate to the egg mixture. If you add it too fast, the heat from the chocolate will cook the eggs and that won’t be good. Keep adding and mixing until it is all mixed together.
Next up, pour the egg-sugar-chocolate mixture back into the original saucepan and heat over medium heat until it starts to thicken.
Chill the chocolate mixture for 2 hours in the refrigerator.
Once the 2 hours is up, whip heavy whipping cream until stiff peaks form.
Gently fold the whipped cream and chilled chocolate mixture together.
To create a swirl, use a pastry bag fitted with a piping tip and pipe the mousse into your favorite dessert cups/dishes.
Top with whipped cream, maraschino cherries or shaved chocolate, if desired. Nutrition information is an approximation.
