Hey pixels!! As you may know, I’m a bit obsessed with chocolate… I love chocolate, I adore it… So, when I found this old recipe I knew I had to make and eat that mousse…

This mousse recipe is from an old “breakfast recipes” book we have at home. It was one of my first sweet recipes a few years ago… It seems centuries ago… Then I hated the idea of making a meringue… I still hate it… I don’t know why, but I find it so boring…

Here you have to make meringue, but the result is worth the effort.

It’s an easy recipe, trust me. I could make it as a teenager, so everyone can make one. And, of course, it’s yummy. It’s chocolate, you know… Now it has been easier to make the mousse. I hope that’s a prove that my cooking skills had improved since when I was 16…:)

Ingredients (serves 6):

  • 200g dark chocolate
  • 4 eggs, separated
  • 100g butter
  • 150g sugar
  • 100ml heavy cream
  • 20 cookies

Directions:

Whip the heavy cream; set aside.

In a double boiler or using the microwave, melt chocolate and butter. Add the egg yolks and mix carefully.

Make the meringue: beat the egg whites and sugar until soft peaks form. Add to the chocolate mixture. Add the whipped cream, too.

Fill a mold with half of the mixture. Cover it using the cookies and then, add a second mousse layer. Serve cold; it should be in the fridge for at least 4 hours before eating it, or better overnight.

Variation: you can use individual ramekins to make mini mousses.
