Classic Chocolate Mousse

  • Preparation Time20 mins
  • Cooking Time5 mins
  • Serves4
  • DifficultyEasy
125ml double or regular cream
125g dark chocolate, finely chopped, or dark chocolate drops
1 tbsp brandy (optional)
2 eggs, separated
Icing sugar

Pour the cream into a saucepan and bring to the boil, then remove from the heat, add the chocolate and stir just until it melts. Add the brandy and whisk in the egg yolks.

In a spotlessly clean bowl, whisk the egg whites until just forming stiff peaks. Spoon a small amount of whisked egg whites into the chocolate and cream mixture, then carefully fold in the rest of the egg whites, just until combined.

Spoon into the bowl, glasses or cups and chill in the fridge for 1-2 hours or until set.

Decorate with raspberries and a hint of icing sugar.
