Chocolate Mousse


Hooray! Miss S is doing cooking classes at school! To date, He Who Eats All of Our Leftovers and I have taste-tested cupcakes, muesli bars, chocolate brownies, lemon slice and best of all, this chocolate mousse. (I feel confident that when Miss S goes out into the big wide world that she will be able to make afternoon teas and desserts, at any rate).

My previous go-to recipe for Chocolate Mousse was the Australian Women’s Weekly Chocolate Mousse, which is good, but Miss S’s Chocolate Mousse is better.

300gm dark chocolate, chopped (I used Cadbury Baking Milk Chocolate and had no complaints)

3 eggs

1/4 Cup caster sugar

1 tablespoon cocoa

300ml thickened cream, whipped

Place the chocolate in a saucepan over another pan filled with simmering water and stir until melted. Set the chocolate aside to cool.

Beat the eggs and caster sugar until thick and frothy. Fold in the cooled chocolate and cocoa.

Fold in the whipped cream. Refrigerate for approximately an hour.
