Express chocolate mousse

Each time I ask my daughter what she wants for dessert, the reply is always the same: “chocolate mousse!”. I came across this quick and easy version for chocolate mousse recently where you whisk the whole eggs and it works beautifully. The texture is a bit denser and firmer than the traditional mousse but it is equally as delicious.

  1. Place the butterfly whisk in the TM bowl with the eggs, sugar and water. Whisk 3 min/70C/speed 3.5.

  1. A whole egg chocolate mousse? What a great idea! If you have two TM bowls you can melt the chocolate and coffee or juice in one bowl and whisk the eggs, sugar and water in the other. Either way you make it, it certainly sounds delicious. Thanks for sharing!

  2. This is a great recipe! Suggesting orange juice for flavoring instead of coffee will make this a soft, creamy, dreamy version of the Sachertorte. Can’t wait to try this out, kids will definitely love knowing that they can have chocolate mouse every day (as long as there’s chocolate in the pantry). Thanks for sharing!

  3. un dessert bien gourmand ou j’aimerai bien y plonger ma cuillère!!
    bonne soirée!
