Easy chocolate mousse


  • 300ml double cream

  • 130g of dark chocolate (70%- 75% cocoa solids)

  • Pinch of salt

  • 1 tbls spoon granulated sugar


  1. Chop up chocolate into small pieces and melt in a bowl over a pot of simmering water.

  2. When around half of it is melted add 100ml of the cream, the sugar and salt and stir constantly until you get a rich creamy mixture.

  3. Set aside and allow to cool

  4. Whip the remaining cream to stiff peaks

  5. Once the chocolate mixture is cooled, combine with the whipped cream, and, using a hand whisk whip the mixture to soft peaks. (Don’t use an electric mixer for this)

  6. Spoon into small bowls or shot glasses and put into the fridge to cool and set.


I serve mine with twisted tuiles. It’s also great with fresh raspberries and/or whipped cream.

I have tried so many different recipes for chocolate mousse, in the end I combined a few of them to make my own. I tried a few different quantities of each before I got this one right but the result is a creamy delicious chocolate mousse, that’s super easy to make.
