The Easiest Chocolate Mousse in the World
Servings 6 150-200 ml. dessert glasses
For the chocolate mousse:
- 100 grams dark chocolate
- 250 ml. (1 cup) very cold whipping cream (see notes for dairy-free version)
For decoration (optional):
- Cocoa nibs
- Chocolate sprinkles
- Chopped chocolate
Chop the chocolate and put in a bowl.
Dissolve in the microwave in pulses or over double-boiler until fully melted and shiny and there are no lumps of chocolate.
In a mixer bowl, whip the cream into a very firm and stable whipped cream.
Add 2-3 tablespoons of whipped cream into the melted chocolate and mix well into a uniform mixture.
Add the chocolate mixture to the rest of the whipped cream and fold gently until you get a texture of mousse.
Transfer the mousse to a piping bag fitted with 2 cm serrated piping tip and drizzle into glasses.
