Chocolate mousse. With the easy pulse of an electric blender, this rich, brandy-enhanced chocolate mousse can be whipped up in a jiffy. We recommend that pregnant women, young children, the elderly and the infirm do not consume raw eggs. While this fancy French dessert might seem like the kind of dish you'd only be able to enjoy if you were at a high-end restaurant, chocolate mousse is easily achievable right in your own kitchen.
I like semi-sweet chocolate but if you prefer your mousse with a darker chocolate flavor, use bittersweet. Remember, the higher the cacao percentage, the less sweet the chocolate.. Chocolate mousse is the ultimate dessert for any chocolate lover. You can cook Chocolate mousse using 6 ingredients and 8 steps. Here is how you achieve that.

Chocolate mousse is the decidedly decadent, old-school dessert you've been overlooking for far too long. This Chocolate Mousse Recipe is THE BEST! I have made Chocolate Mousse before…but have never really found a recipe that I liked. I tried to develop my own a few years back which ended in spoon throwing and tears. Use dark, milk or white chocolate to make a silky smooth, light mousse.
