Chocolate Mousse

Who doesn't love chocolate mousse? I know a lot of people in my house who do! So chocolate mousse is a regular at our house.

Usually I make a different chocolate mousse than the recipe below. The one I usually make I call Death by Chocolate. This one however is a lot less heavier, a bit sweeter and nice and creamy. And very important: it's extremely easy to make!!

As is the case with all chocolate mousse recipes this one also contains raw eggs, so it's not suited for everybody.


Chocolate Mousse


225 gram (1 1/4 cup) bittersweet chocolate (use a high %)
70 gram (5 tablespoons) butter
3,5 dl (1 1/2 cup) whipping cream
2 large eggs
1 tablespoon Amaretto (can be a different liqueur like Tia Maria)
2 tablespoons honey


Melt the chocolate and the butter au bain marie (or with a double boiler). Put the bowl with the chocolate-mixture aside.

In a different bowl whip the cream until it has soft peaks, but is not complete stiff.

In a third bowl beat the eggs and honey with a mixer until it is fluffy. Gently fold in the Amaretto, melted chocolate and honey, being careful to keep it is light as possible.

Pour the mixture in pretty glasses or just in a large bowl and try not to eat half of it already!

Put it in the fridge for at least 1 hour, so it can firm up.
