French chocolate Mousse Recipe

This French Chocolate Mousse Recipe I have learned in France with my Mother. It is one of my favorite dessert. Traditional and easy to make. Ingredients: 180 g mi-sweet dark chocolate, 80 g butter, 3 eggs, 1 pinch of salt, 500 ml whipping cream 

Homemade French chocolate mousse

Step 1: Melt the chocolate in a double-boiler with the butter

Step 2: Separate the whites from the yolks

Step 3: Whip the cream

Step 4: Pinch the salt. Beat the eggs white very firm

Step 5: Take off the heat the chocolate. Put the yolks in it (one after one)

Step 6 : Put the chocolate in the cream whipped with egg whites. Mix gently. That’s done! The Mousse should be kept for a minimum 4 hours in the fridge. Must be eaten in 3 days.

Your guests will very happy...easy and delicious desert!

My personal tips: I put my bowls (for whipping cream & eggs) before using in the fridge. It is a trick to have firm egg whites.
