Simple Chocolate Mousse
This Simple Chocolate Mousse only requires 6 ingredients and 10 minutes of prep. It’s so easy and completely luscious!
(4 ounces) semi-sweet chocolate chips
heavy whipping cream
Mix together the chocolate, salt, and espresso powder (if using) in a medium bowl.
Heat milk until steaming and pour over the chocolate. Let sit for 2-3 minutes, then stir until combined and smooth. Allow to cool fully.
In another medium bowl, whip the cream, sugar, and vanilla with an electric mixer until soft peaks form, about 1-2 minutes. Gently fold into the cooled melted chocolate.
Pour mixture into 4 (4 ounce) ramekins or small tumbler glasses. Refrigerate at least 3 hours or overnight.
Dollop with some whipped cream and chocolate shavings and enjoy!
NOTE: don't miss the important recipe tips in the article for optimal results.
Make sure to
wait until the chocolate is fully melted by the hot milk
, otherwise you might get lumps in your mousse.
Let the chocolate mixture cool fully
before you start to stir in the whipped cream, otherwise the whipped cream will start to turn back into a liquid and won't set properly once chilled.
Fold the whipped cream mixture
into the melted chocolate, instead of stirring, to maintain the airiness and eliminate it being runny.
