This mousse is firm but light, just the perfect texture. It is decadent and not too sweet, just enough, just what you need.

  • hand stand mixer or hand mixer
  • Bowl


  • 1 and ½ cup dark chocolate, unsweetened 200g
  • A little over ⅓ cup butter 75g
  • 3 eggs separated medium size
  • 3 egg whites medium size
  • ½ cup sugar, granulated 100g


  • Melt the chocolate and the butter bain-marie (hot water bath).
  • In the meantime, beat the 6 egg whites. When it starts foaming, add the sugar gradually. (I use my Kitchenaid so I have my hands free to deal with the chocolate).
  • Once the chocolate/butter mixture is melted, remove from the heat and add the egg yolks (3). Mix well. 
  • Once your egg whites are stiff and firm, incorporate the chocolate by folding carefully with a spatula. 
  • Pour in ramekins or any other dish of your choice and reserve in the fridge for an hour. 
  • Enjoy!
