Description

This Easy Chocolate Mousse recipe is so creamy and deliciously rich. You can eat it all by itself, or layer it in a trifle or a cake… whatever you do, just don’t skip this no bake mousse!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 1/2 cups cold heavy whipping cream, divided
  • 6 oz semi-sweet chocolate (about 1 cup semi-sweet chips)

Instructions

  1. Beat eggs and granulated sugar with your mixer for about 3 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile heat 1 cup heavy whipping cream in a small saucepan until just hot, not boiling. With mixer on low pour the hot cream into the egg mixture slowly until combined.
  3. Next, add the egg/cream mixture back into the saucepan and over low heat, stir for five minutes constantly until thickened. Do not boil.
  4. Remove from heat and stir in chocolate until melted. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours, until chilled, stirring occasionally.
  5. When the mixture is completely chilled and firm use your whisk attachment on your stand mixer to whip the remaining heavy cream until stiff peaks form. Remove chocolate from fridge and using the paddle attachment or a spoon fold/stir the whipped cream into the chocolate until incorporated and smooth. I found using the paddle attachment on low speed worked best.
  6. Serve immediately as-is, or refrigerate until ready to use.

Notes

This mousse is perfect when served alone, or as a cake filling, a cupcake topping, or a layered dessert filling.
