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.

Ingredients

3 eggs
1 tbsp water
35g sugar
180g dark chocolate
60g strong coffee (or orange juice if you don’t like coffee)

Method

  1. Place the butterfly whisk in the TM bowl with the eggs, sugar and water. Whisk 3 min/70C/speed 3.5.
  2. Whisk another 5 min/speed 3.5.
  3. Meanwhile, melt the chocolate and coffee (or juice) in the microwave in short bursts and stir between each until the chocolate is just melted.
  4. Fold gently some of the egg mixture into the chocolate. Add the remaining egg mixture and fold gently until combined.
  5. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour to set.
